Hi,
Firstly, if anyone’s planning on roasting me about wanting automatic then just leave now(!)

Anyways, I’ve been looking at buying an auto but I’m stuck as to which. At first I wanted a Toyota Yaris but from 2006-2012 they were ‘multi mode transmission’ which has bad reviews. I wouldn’t want one older than 2006 particularly as there’s more chance of something going wrong with it and I can’t afford one newer than 2012. I’m now looking at a Hyundai i10 or a Kia Picanto (probably 2009/10 plate) but I can’t find any reviews of them for the automatic model so I’m not sure if they’re any good. I’m looking at spending under £3k.

Has anyone had any experience with these cars or can recommend another? X

I think Kia Picanto’s are good. But i dont know whether you will get them in ur price range. But keep looking.

And I’ve found a 2009 one I like for £2850 with 50,000 miles on the clock x

I have a Hyundai i10 and it's a great car. Much better equipped than the fiesta and other cars at the price point. Mine's a manual though so I can't say how good the automatic transmission is.

That’s why I originally wanted one but I’m not sure I’d want an automatic from 2004 😬

It’s a lovely little car but again it’s in Toyota’s years of ‘multi mode transmission’ which is apparently very jerky and unpleasant to drive (although I don’t have personal experience). Thank you for looking though! I hadn’t really considered an Auris until now
