Autocar - - LETTERS -

I read with in­ter­est ev­ery week in Au­to­car of the lat­est elec­tronic driver as­sis­tance and safety sys­tems. How­ever, I find my­self want­ing a ve­hi­cle with min­i­mal elec­tron­ics that I can en­gage with on my own terms.

My cur­rent play­ground is the pre-march 2006 road tax trap era. These cars are gen­er­ally all fix­able within my pig­gy­bank bud­get. I have a £1200, 2002 Toy­ota Yaris with air-con, CD (and cas­sette player, of course). I love driv­ing it and feel it must be the mod­ern equiv­a­lent of a Citroën 2CV: slow com­pared with the rest, but fun and eco­nom­i­cal.

My 1990s univer­sity cas­sette tapes make jour­neys up to see my daugh­ter, now at Leeds Univer­sity, slip past in a nos­tal­gic haze. An­drew Wright Ot­tery St Mary, Devon
