Ford Fiesta – 95,892 registered

The latest Fiesta is one of the best hatchbacks money can buy, so it's no surprise to see it holding onto the title of the UK's best-selling car. Not only does it look great and drive well, it's also comfortable and cheap to run. It'll face competition from the new Volkswagen Golf, which will appear later this year, but we don't expect it fall from first place in this list anytime soon.

You'd think buyers would do some research before parting with a lot of money. 50 years of motoring has taught me that Vauxhalls are not only unreliable, they are pricey for what you get and are not great to drive. There are so many good cars as competition.

Are these best selling cars or cars taken out on finance for 3 or 4 years

As usual, it's all down to personal experience NickNike. I have just sold a 22 year old Corsa which had been in daily use by my wife and is still going strong and I use an immaculate and reliable 40 year old Mk1 Cavalier 2000GL , which I bought new in 1978. Admittedly the Cavalier was Belgian-built. Most of the Luton-built ones fell apart long ago.
