It is necessary to be filled with confidence when you make something for a toddler. You cannot rely on your own palate and so I was very happy when Hannah tucked into the teething biscuits I made for her.
14 years ago Dave bought me a Hyundai Getz. At that stage I was doing a lot of mileage. Within 18 months I had done 68 000 kilometres and we traded it in for another Getz. That was upgraded to an i20 which had a clutch issue. Hyundai offered me a buy back and we decided to get the i30. When that car got close to 90 000 kilometres we decided a new i30 would be in order. It was my 5th car in 10 years and it has served me well for the past 4 years. The time has come to start looking for a new car for me. I would prefer something with seating higher off the ground. This is where the new SUV range of cars comes into play. There are so many on the market and the first one we looked at was a Hyundai.
In France we hired a Peugeot 208 GT Line and we were impressed. We went to our local Peugeot dealer to take a look at the 2008 SUV’s. There are 6 models but they only keep the automatic. When we were there, they had a manual GT Line in the workshop so we could take a look at that. But the sales agent didn’t know the differences between the various cars. When we enquired about the manual 2008 we want, he told us he would have to see where in the country one could be found. And if I wanted to be specific about the colour I would have to wait 6 months for the car to come from France. Not being filled with confidence at all by this, and the fact that after 2 weeks we have not heard back, we won’t be buying a Peugeot.
