Car (South Africa) - - MAIL -

Can you please ex­plain what you mean in CAR Guide when you de­scribe some cars, such as the Nis­san Almera, as hav­ing a “hire-car personality”. It’s a rather un­fair de­scrip­tion, es­pe­cially when you don’t ever ap­ply that de­scrip­tion to Volk­swa­gens and Toy­otas that ll hire-car park­ing lots more than any other make. I have been a reader and sub­scriber of CAR since the end of 1959 and I have seen you use that un­fair term many times. Could you con­sider drop­ping that very sub­jec­tive de­scrip­tion as it is an ob­vi­ous put-down for any­body con­sid­er­ing pur­chas­ing any car with that tag? In­ci­den­tally, I don’t own an Almera. NEIL BECKER East Lon­don [It’s a tongue-in-cheek com­ment, Neil, but what it al­ludes to is that, while there are many VWS and Toy­otas in hire car eets, there are also many in pri­vate hands. That’s less so the case for the Almera – edi­tor.]
