    There's no specific car I wouldn't like to own, but qualities in certain cars can draw me away from them e.g. poor headroom.

    Probably a smart car or something really small as I'm tall so it just doesn't work...i borrowed by dad's corsa whilst mine was being worked on and even that had only just enough head room for me at 6 ft 2

    A KA or a smart car. I know KAs are small, cheap and reliable but I just can't bring myself to get one.

    As a tall guy, anything small or feminine is out of the question. I'd also probably avoid anything that is too common because I'd end up finding my way into part of a stereotype or generalisation.

    I agree
    A KA is the one car i refuse to get as well. People rave about them, but they rot like hell, they are expencive to tax etc and contrary to what you say, they arent that reliable.

    This is how I feel about the Mercedes-Benz A class. So bloody overpriced for what it is.

    Well there is another one to the list, it is the Aston Martin Cygnet.

    No idea why anyone would pay 3x more for a Toyota iQ

    Genuinely can't believe there are people out there who would buy the Cygnet over the iQ. Even if they think they're paying for the branding, I'd still rather have a Toyota badge on a car like that.

    Yeah, this.

    I'm pretty tall, so I'd probably have to rule out something like a Smart car etc. - if not because they are ugly as hell and look pretty ridiculous - on the basis of practicality. Although, it might be quite an amusing sight for passers-by.

    KAs.


    They just seem a bit insubstantial. And they aren't good for rust.



    I should also say a Corsa....but I do have a little soft spot for them, even if my mum says she will disown me if I get one.
