You can NEVER go wrong with a Fiesta! If it has Ford on the label - guaranteed to be reliable with easily available parts and plenty of dealerships/specialists to get them serviced at. Focus is a good car aswell

Which car? Watch

Of course Hyundais are reliable, far more so than most other cars if you ask me.
My advice would be ignore the scrappage scheme and don't buy new, you can easily get more than 2 grand off by buying a 1 or 2 year old car.

Definitely don't get a fox, they are surprisingly unreliable for VW. Pay the extra and get a Fiesta.

My advice is dont buy a new car.
Sell your "old banger" - what ever you get for it put this towards a second hand car.
You could get a car which cost around 15k maybe 5/6 years ago now for under your 8k budget and you will get much more for your money

No one seems to have metioned the Mazda 2. Looks great, fun to drive and it will ne 100000% reliable.
Or if that doesn't appeal to you, the Suzuki Swift is pretty good value or you could get an Alfa Mito for £8000 with scrappage. score!

i test drove a fox today and it was a really nice drive. The car does move quite fast for a small car and there is so much space in the back of the car, it could easily fit two tall adults in the back. I've seen some reviews sayig it feels like a mini MPV, but trust me it doesnt at all it just feels like any small car does. Ideal for a first car. Theres a lot of boot space for a small car and an unnecessarily large amount of cup holders, but that cant be bad. I would defo get one.

ford are doing up to £5000 of new cars with the scrappage scheme, so you could get in and bag yourself a bargain fiesta, mk2 ka etc.
+ the new fiesta is an awesome little car
