    Audi A1 may be a good choice.
    VW Polo, Suzuki Swift, Mini One, Ford Fiesta, Fiat Punto.
    French: Renault Clio, Citroen DS3, Peugeot 308.
    French cars arent unreliable btw. Theyre really not that bad.
    But i would buy a car outright rather than getting one on finance. Its cheaper in the long run, plus it will then actually be your car!
    But its your choice!

    Ah ok. I personally dont think finance is a good idea but as i said, its your choice.
    Anything German/Japanese will be the most reliable. You can get a decent reliable car from £2000 upwards.
    It just depends on how much you can spend and what car you actually want.
    Anything new will be a lot more expensive than something a little older.
