James Ruppert: used cars that are pneumatic but not worn Car News

Maserati Ghibli: After reading our article on Japanese imports a few months ago, Richard wanted to update us on his latest purchase: “This is a 1994 Maserati Ghibli from the Japanese market (57,000 miles), and it looks and drives like new. So now I have three Japanese imports: Zagato Lexus, Camaro and now the Ghibli. This is my third Maserati from the Biturbo era, having already owned a 1985 coupe and a 1990 convertible, and I have to say I was very impressed with their quality, totally at odds with their reputation in the press.

Questions from readers

Question: We want to turn our daily diesel runaround into a small hybrid sedan. What can I get for £ 18,000? Christine Taylor, Buckingham

Answer: If you are looking for ‘really small’ the Toyota Yaris might be a good fit, with models around two to three years old available starting at just over £ 14,000. For something a little bigger, why not consider the Renault Clio E-Tech? We found a 2020 RS Line model in the classifieds for £ 17,995. You’ll get a lot of equipment, including cruise control, air conditioning, and satellite navigation, and Renault claims you can get around 64.2 mpg. Alternatively, if you are able to stretch your budget to £ 20,000, you can get a nearly new VW Golf eTSI. JW
