Any recommends for models? We've been looking at Zafiras, Focus C-Max and the like.
my mate had a seat albrahama for away days, did 200,000 miles or so and was pretty reliable

We've had 4 Zafiras, all autos, 3 inc the current one doing over 350k miles combined with no major mechanical issues. Great for a growing family, taking furniture to flats/getting Christmas trees/carrying bikes/6 pissed adults back from the pub, taking 6 kids to play cricket, you name it. Kids learned to drive in them. They've all ended up scratched to fuck and covered in mud (live in the country) and no-one thinks of stealing them, not exactly full of street cred are they.

Bit 'sit up and beg' to drive, bit soft around corners but who's a boy racer in one of these anyway. You could look for an imported Opal (same car), they seem to have zero value. Easy to maintain them too. Missus loves them.

Will be looking at Zafira As (MK1) for his budget, pretty much an Astra G underneath. Would recommend a petrol if it's going to be driven round town primarily.

I've still got a Haynes manual for the Astra G/Zafira A if you do get one and want it Jayo.

Agree about the petrol one for town driving. I've always thought zafiras fitted that niche well (compact outside but space/seats inside)

Yeah looking primarily petrol to keep running costs down. I've already got a big diesel van and the tax is horrific

Renault scenic is good too, just make sure you check the electrics plus the auto handbrake.

1.6? Check for lumpy running and wandering revs when idle, the coil packs have a tendency to act up, they're not that expensive to sort out but they're a pain in the arse.
