We had to sell one of our 159s and need to replace it with something "sensible".
The "sensible" car of choice is a 156 Sportwagon
Priced at somewhere upto £2k.
Can you help me a bit though?
I've seen a lovely 1.8TS - but 1.8 in a Sportwagon? Will I fall asleep driving it? It'll be mainly used for transporting us, Charlie and mountains of platic crap (and maybe a dog) along the A1/M62.
I've also seen a couple of 2.4JTDMs - but all over 100k. Does the mileage matter on these cars? I know the engine will be ok, but what about the rest of the car.
Finally, I've also seen a V6 with 106k on it for £1695. Am I mad to even be considering this?
When I say "seen" I mean on Pistonheads/Autotrader.
Anything I particular I should be looking for other than FSH, belts etc.
What do you think?
