    Buy new under warranty or old and be prepared to walk away from it.

    I bought a 2009 Mondeo estate for 1950 18 months ago. Had already had a clutch and doesn’t have a dpf. Driven 35k in it without a hitch and it’s probably still worth what I paid for it now.

    Car prior was a Saab 9-5 aero. Kept for 3 years without a problem. Cost 2k and sold for £1500 and again bought a well serviced example that had the clutch and flywheel ect already done.

    Cars don’t have to cost if you are savvy

    Battery running out…

    well yes, you can run out of battery.

    and you can run out of diesel or petrol as well.

    In fairness, it does need a bit more planning to manage the battery / journey requirements, its not as smple as pulling into a petrol station.

    As I said, not for everyone, but it would be for alot of people.

    How many people drive more than 65 miles a day every day?

    Yeah. Agree with that. Ridiculously expensive.

    I’m going to persuade Mrs supersessions to keep the Octavia for another year or so and then start looking at nearly new skoda kodiaqs.
