Which first car with €2,000 to spend?

Looking for my first car with €2,000 to spend. Looking for something small like the Renault Clio, Opel Corsa, Nissan Micra etc. Any advice? Also what year/mileage should I expect for this price?

Hi Emma,

I’d go for the Micra, as it’ll be the most reliable of the cars you’ve mentioned. A budget of €2,000 should get you a 2006-2007 model, and I wouldn’t be bothered about mileage — buy on service history and condition. Other good options are a Toyota Yaris, Honda Jazz or, if you fancy a bit of driving fun, a Suzuki Swift.
