Octavia Estate forget your so called premium branded wagons with overpriced spares and the rest.
I need something which will cope with a 500 mile a week commute, but also be a bit fun for me. I want to be able to lug the bike(s) about, and my little lad.
500 miles with out blinking or refilling (based on the 04 tdi averaging 50-55mpg on good runs)
Lug bikes? 3 & 3 people with kit, 2 with 2 people for 2 weeks in france easy all inside
Suitable for children - probably
but also be a bit fun for me
What sort of fun? plenty of room with the seats down apparently...
Drives well handles well but not a sports car or hot hatch. But what you save in fuel, insurance, tyres, and points will buy a nice bike - probably more fun
