    I can see both sides, just googled the fox, I think it's quite nice actually! In black it would be lovely, I'd be happy with it

    I think you're being really ungrateful, that you're being a bit of a spoilt brat and you don't realise how lucky you are. You're smart and want to reason your way logically through the situation to show that your parents are being unreasonable, but you don't understand that it's a gift, not a right. They can be as unreasonable as they like, you can ask but you can't tell or argue with them.

    I was never bought a car, no one paid for me to take driving lessons; just be grateful and, even if there are no financial considerations like petrol, let them do what they will.

    Also I'm just saying you're *being* these things; you're obviously a good natured, loving person who wants to do what's best and I wouldn't say you *are* those things.

    The main issues seem to be the body roll when cornering and the inability of the suspension to mitigate any bumps/potholes.

    I have a friend who test drove one...not a good review there but it seems to be a recurring theme with the Fox.

    Because it's in the wrong section of the Health and Relationship forum.

    Have they said why they want you to have the Fox?

    Don't forget that they are probably paying the bills for it so although the Polo might only be £600 more in cost it will cost more to run etc.

    If I was offered a brand new car, I'd take it no questions asked!

    I don't think it's a single-sided problem. If your parents are determined to get the Fox they shouldn't have brought you into the decision making at all. Seems like they made you feel like you could have a say in what car you get and then decided on their own anyway. I also understand you want the Polo more.

    At the same time if your parents feel the Fox will work out better for them financially, you should take it and just be grateful because no matter what car you get it is a present and you should not turn down a present just because it's not exactly what you wanted. So in this respect, once you found out you're getting the Fox you should have just gone along with it and been thankful!

    You are ungrateful! The only reason you don't want the fox is because you don't think you will look cool infront of your mates! How do I know this... well because you want the slightly cooler Polo
    Nah, it's really not that. It's my personal taste, nothing to do with my friends.

    have you ever thought that maybe your dad had a reason for buying you that car? maybe hes getting a good deal on it cos he cant, like most peples parents, afford to get you anything more expensive than that. Also, whos paying insurance etc?
    a car is a car, no-one under 25 is expected to be driving anything particularly nice. Be grateful that youre being bought a car in the first place...i had to pay for every single lesson, my car, insurance etc etc etc i didnt have any help from my parents.

    tbh, yeah i think you are being a little ungrateful and immature, we cant always have what we want in life, but at least your parents are trying to give you what you want..namely a car. if i were you id go and say thanks...

    If your dad is trading his old car he is probably getting 2 grand off the fox because it is new. Pay that *****!
    this. I don't think your taking this fact into consideration. If you still fail to see your dads reasoning after this, then yes I would call you ungratefull.

    Plus the fox isn't much different than the polo anyway... just looks a little more aerodynamic at the front.

    It's £600 of a difference in total, with the trade-in taken into account.
    I'm coming around to it....mainly because between no car and a car I'd go for the latter...
