Reliable 5 seat family car | News & FAQs
Added: 21 Jul 2009
We have £2000 cash and an R reg "scrapage" Toyota Picnic and the gear box about to go on our Picnic.
We have 3 teenage kids and a dog. I do mostly lots of short journeys all year.
We need a reliable, economical, family car maybe like Skoda Octavia or anything else, but would prefer interest only finance over shorter period of time.
With £2,000 there are lots of very clean used cars on the private market.
Go to eBay, Auto Trader, Gumtree and you will be amazed at what you see.
...and you can't go far wrong.
Make that list the buying criteria rather than thinking in terms or makes and models and you will end up with a safe, reliable car.
Even if it only lasts a couple of years, it will still all work out a lot cheaper than getting finance and buying something much newer.
Leave the nearly new cars for a bit later in life when you are not under such financial pressure.
