i prefer the ford, will hold its value much better than the kia. go for a smaller engine size or you may find yourself burning through petrol which can be annoying.

it was a smart car, maintenance was expensive as you needed to go Mercedes. I had so many fines as well. Now theres so many alternatives to Uber and the night tube so getting around is simple.

Which is an example of why I think you should not be looking to buy a car at all.
