I am really stuck. I need help which car should i get. I am limited to an automatic since i passed in an automatic. I am looking to buy second hand cars and my budget is £3000


I am looking for what i posted down below(renault clio 2013 automatic) however, it does not seem to have air conditioning listed. I am also looking for bluetooth and a reverse camera which it seems not to have. Any ideas appreciated.

Hi,

I would say that it depends on what features that you want from the car and if you would rather have systems in the car or a separate one eg separate sat nav or one incorporated, would you give me an idea of your areas i could send you some cars if you give me a list of features you want since I'm not busy today.

All irrelevant. You are a new driver. Insurance is going to be horrendous. Bluetooth. Why . Just get something you can afford. A citroen c1

It does have air con aka climate control. It also lists bluetooth.

I think you need someone who knows about cars to take you out to test drive them and check them over.

you won't get half those features on a auto car for around 3k. You could have got a manual with this stuff included, but the auto premiums mean you'll just have to compromise.

Well, I posted above what I look for. If you could help that would be appreciated. My budget is £3000 max so anything like that or below in pricing

Do they have a citroen C1 in an automatic? all the car reviews I see on youtube are mainly for manual cars

I am afraid I don't have anyone. No one in my family can help me as I am the first one to drive. No one knows about cars etc cuz they don't drive or own one
