Just seen this thread.both seem reliable,economical cars for around town and small journeys,not ideal for long motorway drives really.picantas we have replaced 2 gearboxes the last year,both around the 50-60000 miles mark,seem to have common problem eating up rear abs sensors/hubs too.but we do far more clutches,water pumps at very low mileages on 107,Aygo and c1's,but there are more on the road.i think it don't matter what you it is how it has been drove and looked after but keep that oil regularly changed as they do rattle s bit if not.enjoy!
A very belated thread update from me.
We did trade in my wife's old Micra...
For a second hand Kia Picanto.
So far, <Touch Wood> it does exactly what she needs it to do without any fuss.
Although in line with the "Modern cars do nothing for me" thread, it really is a modern/anonymous car.
Thanks again to everyone who provided advice.
Thanks everyone, we are going to look at the Kia today and take it from there.
From my experience in the motor trade, I’ve never had a problem with either......but if I were buying for my wife, it would be Aygo every time.
In fact she used to have one and loved it.
107s are surprisingly quick as long as you drive them like a chainsaw...
Nope, keep your foot in it on the Peugeot / Toyota / Citroen version. The short first gear and dipping of the clutch come as a surprise to start with after years of torque convertor driven autos.
Revvy with VVt roar it will thrash the tits of our Picasss 2.0 auto despite what the figures on paper say
Personally I found those automated manuals horrendous to drive. you have to lift for the changes etc. Kia auto is good and shouldnt be much worse on fuel, mines horrendous
We have the auto Peugeot 107 , no difference to manual on MPG as the auto IS manual !!?? It uses a robotised manual gearbox so you have standard 5 gears but no clutch pedal You either put it in drive ( economy) or you shift it manually via shifter + + + + + or - - - - - for up or down .
Thanks for the feedback.
Do you think the auto box makes much of a difference, as we are looking at a 2016 manual?
I have a 2018 kia picanto auto I use for driving tuition and get this 25/26mpg. Kia have totally mugged me off and really thats all your buying the warranty. That said good auto box. Wish id bought a fiesta ecoboost was best out of all i drove but i got sold the 7yr idea
