As the topic says I was offered an (almost brand) new car yesterday by my dad..

The car in question is a 2012 Citroen C3 1.4 diesel with flappy paddle automatic gearbox but its a leasing (?) car so I can only drive 12000 km each year for 3 years with it, my question is this, what should I do?

My dad is trying to get me too (to or too?) sell my Corolla once its fixed and take the C3 from him.

What should I do? Keep my Corolla and slap my dad on the back of his head or ignore him all together?

Just for the record, I HATE!!! french cars (maybe because my first one burned), they are slow, its impossible to work on them myself and they suck on roadtrips!

Personally i would always choose any old toyota over any french car new or old to be honest. Could you not keep hold of the corolla till the c3 breaks down lol!

I can (and will) keep my old Corolla, after all, I felt safe in that instead of in a plastic P.O.S.!

But the C3 is cheaper to run and to insure and I would not have to worry about getting things fixed on it for years.
I will probably slap my dad on the back of his head the next time he asks me about the C3.. lol!

As much as I like the C3, don't take it, its French.
Why is your Dad trying to off load it to you, whats wrong it?

I dont know why my dad is trying to offload it to me, after all, I drove it home from the Citroen dealer when it was new with only 6 km on it last year, I have never driven a slower more uncomfortable car in my life.

And someday my dad acts like an idiot.

I will keep my car and I really want to get it back from the mechanic but the idiot is taking forever to get my car done! Sad

I hate that guy!
