hi having read a previous topic about a year ago on this but unfortunatly topic was closed, i just wanted another opinion.
im getting a new car before the end of month ive decided to get a nissan quashqai. i had decided on the 2 litre diesel as i think the 1.6 version wouldnt be enough pull for this car. anyway my search has really hit dead ends as there just over my budget or they have 50000+ on the clock !! (3YR OLD) ive seen a couple of 2 litre petrol versions well in my budget, alot less than the diesel, less than 15000 on the clock, i no the tax is going to cost me more, but what about running costs, how much of a differance is there. the cars a 58 plate, i will be doing school run, going to work (less than 10 miles) probally use motorway twice a month for visting family or biking routes.
any advice will be great as im torn, try and wait for a diesel in budget or get the petrol version !!
i forgot to say in all probaly 10/12k a year, usually take kids away camping down south somewhere by sea.
