    Default Which model for first car

    Hi everyone just wondering which one of the 90ís model would make a good car for a new driver and first car, it has to be non turbo with a degree of good fuel economy. All opinions will be taken onboard and hopefully easy enough to fix when broken

    Non turbo due to probationary restrictions? If so the B5 A4 1.8T is a decent option and it is exempt in most states with a simple application form due to under power/weight.
    If not then possibly an A3 model.

    Try and set a few "must be's" first. Reliable as can be for age, parts available and so on. I'm not a fan of some of these cars going to a first car situation. Not snobbish, just you can easily be off the road for ages just getting problems fixed. You loose your enthusiasm and so on. However, if that's what you want then go for it, but remember that it was your choice and accept the fate.
