So something that doesn't fit your criteria at all (well not quiet) but i'm about to sell my motor.
I've a 53plate Honda Accord Type S. Will have done 130,000 trouble free miles! I've put over 50,000 on that and its not missed a beat. Long runs its awesome MPG, drive it hard and it flies 2.4 and in the rev band its keeps up with most quick stuff. Fully loaded... £2k as i'm emigrating soon for a no fuss sale. Really is the best hassle free motor i've had!!!
Thanks, but we've also got to think about Tax, Insurance and running costs too.
We're test driving a 2005 (55) Focus 1.6 Zetec TDCi today which is advertised locally for £3k with 96,600 miles on the clock. Group 7 insurance, £30 road tax and 60+ mpg average on a steady run
I know that the 1.6 TDCi isn't the best (on paper) of Ford's diesel engined Focuses, but it suits our needs the best and the price is pretty good too. My brother in law is an engineer down in Fords Essex plant and apparently the 1.6 TDCi is more reliable than the 2.0 which is nice to know
