    Try and set a few "must be's" first. Reliable as can be for age, parts available and so on. I'm not a fan of some of these cars going to a first car situation. Not snobbish, just you can easily be...

    So hard to comment as we all come from different perspectives. I have a 1.8 TQ from new and I'll be keeping it. It drives like a new car, has low Km and engine hours and I'm not bothered by a new car...

    Maybe give the mileage figure a bit less attention. Engine hours are at least as important. A highway car will have maybe half the engine running hours that a city car will have. Km's are important...

    Any car model you choose may have inherent faults but not every car has them to any extent. My C5 allroad has had a few issues, but on reflection they have been quite acceptable. Air suspension is a...

    Go back to 27litres response and let your fingers do the walking. Shipping will be something to watch carefully, it can be way over the top.
