    This will be my first car really, I'm 18, I've been driving my parents spare car, but now I'm going to get my first.

    I want something small, and easy to drive.

    Excellent choice but you better get a 16v Clio, with the F7P engine.... Woot woot! 1.5k seems too much. I would pay £800-900 for that car, remember is the 1.4 and 91k miles!

    Thanks for reply. You see I dont know too much about cars, I will try to get the price down, maybe to 1,100. I need a smaller/less power because I dont want the insurance to be too high, I've got to pay for university on all.

    Are clios easy to drive?

    yes they are, and if you are smart enough they are easy to mantain too, change the oil every 3k miles and check that the coolant has been changed oftenly....

    What does the "S" stand for in the title? Sport?

    And what are the clutches like on it? because I've been drive a vauxall and the clutch is realy stiff, which is really annoying.

    Renault Clutches are soft when new and get stiffer as mileage go by.... yes the S stands for Sport...
