Looking to buy a 156 which one?

I am looking to buy my wife a car for taking our two little kids around in.

She will be driving around 6k a year.

How reliable are they and how bad is the mpg.

I want to spend £1500 will I find a good one for this?

What Spec should I look for?

Any help will be great.

Go for a 1.9 JTD Lusso if you can get one for that money, seen a few 1.9 jtd Veloces for around that price range so maybe possible!

6k a year is too little for a diesel IMO, something like this would be good. Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 JTS Veloce 2 4dr Saloon 2004 ate you looking for a facelift model?

£1500 should buy a very good example - not worth getting a diesel for only 6k a year - buy the best specced low mileage petrol you can find.

This has been for sale a while but could be worth a look particularly as its had a recent cambelt and service - cambelt change at an indy is £300
