This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

That car that was filmed being shunted sideways along the motorway
was a Clio. I'd just bought one and was delighted to see how tough and safe they seemed.

Until I leaned against it and dented a panel.*

*piss off.

That happened to my sister with her new Clio.
Luckily the tin foil they made it from is easily accessible from the other side, so she popped off the door panel and pressed it back out again.

However, I got a phone call last week because her drive shaft stripped off it's teeth, this was only a year after the wiring was replaced under warranty, which was a year after the electric window broke and the glass dropped!

Hmm, Clios... Be safe out there.

Mine's about 9 years old
and the papers I had with it indicate that it's had practically everything replaced, including the windscreen. It's like a new car really!
