An interesting post - over the last twenty or so years I've owned:

MG Midget - clutch went and body fell to bits

Ford Fiesta Mk1 - body rusted away

Ford Escort Mk1 - gearbox went, floor rusted away

Nissan Micra K10 - traded in

Nissan Micra K11 - flattened in accident

Ford Fiesta Mk IV - traded in

Alfa Romeo 156 TSpark 2.0 - run out of cash (too expensive to run)

Ford Fiesta MkIV - 85k miles, donated to niece

Renault Clio MkIII - after 4.5 years, trade in for VW up!

It's surprising how many cars you get through over the years.
