It's new car time, the trusty old 306 diesel hatchback has had it's days. Mrs Bucko has a tiny Audi A1, we have 2 kids aged 1.5 and 2 so need lots of room for 2 strollers and all the other kit required for days out etc.
Probably doing about 10k miles a year, I love diesel but i've also considered petrol.
My decisions have hit a wall. Hatchback or estate? Petrol or diesel? Medium or large car?
When we set a budget for £5k we were excited about what cars we could look at but it appears in reality that £5k really doesn't buy much these days!
So far looked at:
Ford Focus Hatch or estate 1.6 Zetec (petrol)
VW Golf V 1.6 FSI
VW Passat Estate
Skoda Octavia Estate
Saab 9-3 Estate
Peugeot 406 Estate
BMW 320d Estate
Honda Accord Estate
Some of the above cars are so hard to find within budget with sub-100k miles on the clock.
We want a nice car that will keep us happy for at lease 3 years. Are we missing something?
