I've just turned 18 recently, and I plan on buying a car at the end of January 2022.

I have about 2k to spend on the car upfront.

I need a reliable car to not break down on the motorway as I'm going to be driving around 10 miles to work and 10 miles back home, 5 day a week. (Around 100 miles a week)

I've been looking at the Peugeot 207 and the Hyundai i10 and i20. I have heard that the 207 isn't very reliable, so was just looking for recommendations.

I have also been looking at the Suzuki Alto, Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1. The Suzuki and Toyota have been the most appealing but I am still unsure.

I would say the i10 is a good bet, or a Toyota Yaris

Thanks. Do you happen to have any ideas of whether or not they are reliable/cheap to run?

I presume that £2,000 is your car budget, and not car+insurance budget?

I'd avoid anything French if you are looking for reliability
