    Hi.

    I'm going to be changing jobs soon, and I'll have a 9 mile commute from my home to work.

    I'm looking into getting some sort of vehicle for the journey - I'd cycle it, but some of the journey is on the motorway, and the roundabouts are really quite dangerous.

    What would you recommend I buy?

    I'd like something cheap and reliable. I don't have any care about looks. I have a full driving license, and can get a motorcycle license if necessary.

    Thanks.

    Look for a Kia Picanto or a Hyundai Getz.

    You were supposed to be getting your bike licence in 2011, so I suggest you do that now :security:

    Will you be needed to transport things on a semi-regular basis to and from work? If so, then I wouldn't bother with a bike, but get a cheap-ish small car instead. And it'll be nice and warm in the winter Given the journey is so short, how about a hybrid/fully electric? Are there charging points at work? They don't necessarily fit the 'cheap' part, but for the sort of range you'll be using it for, it could be a good option.
