got a 57 octavia lauren & klement, 2.0Tdi. im guessing its currently worth around £4000 altho i havent seriously researched that yet, its a rough estimate for now.
my current driving suits a petrol engine these days, more small trips than any motorway journeys, so looking to change 'codes'. the octavia was ideal for camping and boot space, but its just me and the missus these days, so ideally we're looking for something just slightly smaller than the octavia, 4 doors and reasonable boot space and a good name for reliability. itd also be nice to free up a grand or so to knock off my overdraft.
so far ive been warned to stay away from french and cant go wrong with japanese or volk/audi group.
anyone care to add to this advice and give me any pointers to certain makes/models to look out for please?
im guessing that as id want to be going a little cheaper, then garages arent the place to look as they just want me to take finance, and wouldnt be interested. so am i better off looking on autotrader and going private?
thanks a lot
