I bought a Category N Sandero.
Often with these cars, very light damage is enough to write them off for insurance purposes.
Having said that, when I had the wheel alignment checked at Kwikfit, they were unable to properly align the wheels. There was a slight error which was picked up by the very sophisticated Hunter wheel alignment machine that they use.
As far as I am aware, there is no problem with the way the car drives or with tyre wear.
I have got another problem.
A couple of years ago, I was charged with 'Not revealing the name of the driver'. I was one of three drivers, and the police came to my partner's house, six months after an incident, and immediately expected me to 'remember the name of the driver'.
I made the mistake of representing myself in court. And as a consequence I had six points on my licence.
All very unfair and unjust.
The incident was an incident with a cyclist, who had posted about five hundred similar incidents with motorists.

Because of these two blots on my copy book, I have to phone up for a quote, rather than just feeling in an online form.
I have insured with the Coop for a large number of years but I have grown increasingly dissatisfied.
I received a written quote through the post, which I eventually accepted. But it was much higher than I thought was reasonable. I simply did not want to go to the trouble of shopping around.
I did apply for an online quote with the Coop only to be told that I would have to phone. And when I approached them that way, I was given an astronomical quote.
Has anyone got any good suggestions?
Particularly for 'Cat N' cars?
And for points on your licence?
I feel very annoyed about the high quotes I have been offered because I feel that I am a below average risk.
After all, I drive a Dacia Sandero for goodness sake!
