It is PRAWN - anyway yes I do change cars more than most - hire them as 120,000 miles a year is too much for ANY lease - in fact 4 hire companies have banned me because of the milage - they don't like having to send a car off fleet that quickly with just one person having used it - luckily got a good deal with one of the big hire companies who just about put up with it!
As to having one after me - well I DO actually run them in a little bit and never rev an engine till it's warmed up but the brakes and suspension do suffer - 4000 miles for complete set of new tyres on Vectra SRi - they weren't happy - but it's got traction control so I can't have been spinning tyres - can I? Of course the screech round every roundabout has nothing to do with it..............
All the cars I get start to go off the pace towards the end - another thing that worries me are the oil changes - they go off fleet at 15,000 miles never having had an oil change even though some need them at 10,000 miles!
These cars do NOT show up as a hire vehicle so when you buy an ex vauxhall - audi - vw etc fleet car it may have been driven by one of their sales managers but it could have just as easily been thrashed as a hire car!
