Which small car to buy
LIKE you, I prefer rear-wheel-drive cars for the way they drive and feel on the road. I'm also in favour of buying used BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes because you get to drive a better car than you might otherwise be able to afford, but they can be expensive to service and repair. For that reason I am loathe to recommend them. But I also agree that some of the cars coming from Japan look good, and I particularly like the new Lancer. I wouldn't be concerned about front-wheel drive at all, there's nothing wrong with the way they drive, handle, steer or brake.
Air of confidence
I GUESS because tyre companies haven't yet worked out how to make a tyre puncture-proof without reverting to the solid rubber tyres used before the invention of the pneumatic tyre early last century. The closest we've come is run-flat tyre that is fitted to the latest BMW 3-Series.
