    thats the problem with old cars
    does it have to be Diesel Keith surely more hassle in the long run and the mileage you do is it worth the headache
    and does it have to be a big car or would you go small size car again
    are you fussy on year
    little bit older on slightly bigger tax are for nothing extra 300 euro a year wouldnt be the end of the world
    theres the world of 10 year old plus cars available for the fraction of the price these days due to stigma on getting them insured etc. wich isnt actually the case at all really

    For that money loads of stuff out there... you'd even get an '09 plate for that budget.

    few examples:

    Are they all not a bit overkill for just getting in and out of work? If it was me, I'd save my money and just get a box on wheels if that's all it was going to do.

    There's a 2007 100bhp Fiat Panda for sale on Backroads. :D
