Alex’s Story

19th June 2018 | George Howell

Ideal First Car has assisted many young drivers in getting on the road. Here we have Alex’s story. After contacting Ideal First Car, and laying out his unique requirements, we were able to assist him in the purchase of his 2017 Vauxhall Corsa. Even though he went on to buy the car himself, it was thanks to the services and advice he received by Ideal First Car that meant he was able to come to a well informed decision. Safe travels Alex.

‘Ideal First Car helped me to choose my first car, a Limited Edition Black Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 litre in March 2017 after I passed my driving test. At first I had no idea what car I wanted to get but after George, a representative of the Ideal First Car Team, took me around lots of different dealerships in Devon and sent me loads of helpful information on different cars; eventually settling on a Corsa’.

‘Whilst I didn’t buy my car through Ideal First Car, the advice they provided helped immensely when choosing my Ideal First Car; as I wouldn’t have even known the car I have now existed. But thanks to the guidance I received from Ideal First Car and George showing me what cars suited my needs; I’m now able to enjoy the open road in a car I love! I eventually got my car from Evans Halshaw in Beverley. I’ve owned the car for just over a year  and I’ve put 15,500 miles on my car, it still runs perfectly and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Thank you Ideal First Car; and thank you George :)’


Some alternatives to this car: 2017 Ford Fiesta 1.2 82 ZETEC, 2016 Suzuki Swift 1.2 SL-Z.
