    My dad had one of these, and I can say they are a good car, and if you can get it relatively cheap for what you can afford then I think you should. Nothing particularly went wrong with it, and that's with him driving around 15,000 miles a year for around 6 years. Careful you don't nick the tyres though, it uses some kind of "sports" tyres which are more expensive to replace.

    Quite a nice car, drove one as a rental a few months back.

    Every bit as good as a Ford Focus if not better, only thing it is let down by the interior design which is rather plain and drab.

    Bar that drab interior, it appears to be a bloody good car for what it is.

    When I was 20 I wasn't paying a penny over £400 for anything. (I change cars frequently).

    When you're 18 in these modern times it costs a bomb to insure a heap of junk like my old 206. My VW Polo 6N2 is still £1400 a year to insure

    It's not bad at all. I am 20, have been driving for 2 years with no NCB. For a £1000 2001 1 litre Corsa my cheapest quote is £800, for a £3500 2006 Mazda 3 2 litre sport I get quoted just £300 more.

    I love the interior! Well, the steering wheel is a little 'old' looking, other than that, the dash board is amazing imo.

    Sorry, but those sort of figures to cover a mazda is stupid.
    My other half had a porsche 911 for her second car and I know that came in at under £1000 a year. The boxster that followed it was a lot more, mind...
