Mobile Another first car suggestions please

DD is sitting here looking at an old second hand car to buy. Any tips on makes models and insurance companies please. She knows she will have to have a device fitted pref not limiting night time driving as she works late. She has a very small budget around £1000 for a first car. She's looking at a punto and nearly died when the insurance was 3 times the value of the car. Welcome to the world of young driving. She will be 19 in August and she's putting me and another family member as named drivers. Any tips please.

We are looking at a Kia picanto for DS when he turns 17 this summer. Itís a 1litre and the insurance is around £1000 with a black box. He is getting a car of higher value, I think this brings the insurance down slightly.

Shop around ring up for quotes as well as online

My daughter had a 1.2 fiesta for her first car it cost about £1100 to insure with a black box from direct line , her friends punto was about £1500

Post codes make a lot of difference though as does occupation , putting down your a student or a bar worker for example will make insurance higher than a apprentice teaching assistant .

My eldest daughter is 19 and her car is a Toyota aygo? Think that's right, its got a small engine either 1.0 or 1. 1. Her insurance was just over £1400 but that's without a black box, I think her insurance was with Hastings.

My daughter was looking at one of these originally cos they have a really good Warrenty, better than the one on the car she has now but she saw that and then set her heart on it

Yes we are looking at a 3-4 year old one and I think they come with a 7 year warranty. We are looking at the SR7 which looks a bit sportier but still a 1 litre engine. What did your daughter get in the end?

My daughter has a VW UP, and insured with go girl. I had my doubts as they were the cheapest and didnít want to fit a box - but when a lorry hit her they were great - organising a courtesy car ( for a 17 year old) and although it wasnít sorted by time for renewal they gave her the years no claims anyway. The UP held up well in the crash too!

We have looked at those too but my mum has one and I think DS doesnít want the same car as his grandma! Your daughters sounds nice though, my mums is just a bog standard grey one!
