For info, what is the informed opinion on most reliable automatic cars in the £3-4k bracket? That's all my new daughter-in-law will want to spend, they have other priorities. Last time I knew anything about it, Ford Fiesta and Renault Clio automatics were a disaster. The GM box and VAG were good. Toyota had had a disaster with the early Yaris. How are Hyundai i10, Nissan Micra, Citroen C3, Aygo, 107, Jazz and other small things?
