    Never owned a car before so starting from scratch here.

    After a family-sized vehicle with the following wish-list:

    – roof rack
    – decent sized boot
    – low-maintenance / reliable
    – decent mileage
    – green as possible (without adding huge amounts to the overall cost)

    Budget wise – got plenty of savings but rather not blow them all on the car. Vague, I know but just looking for some suggestions for starting my research.

    Any opinions much appreciated, as always.

    Cheers.

    Bit pointless without a budget.

    By roof rack you mean roof bars? If so you can get them to fit pretty much all cars.

    You should give some indication of budget … 5k? 10k? Would help us with suggestions.

    Focus?

    Got any no claims discount? Might be best aiming for low insurance group rather than mpg, depending on projected use. Honda for reliability is a reasonable starting point, but you could tell us a bit more to help better.

    Mileage per annum?
    Any child shaped objects to carry?
    I would look at petrol, likely Japanese and underrated. So Auris or Avensis, Civic or Accord, 323 or 6. Or fall back on the obvious Focus or Mondeo.
