Ex Motability Touran would be a good bet. You can get a very low miler, serviced and maintained properly.

That's pretty much what I committed to earlier today. A Touran 1.9 TDi 105 SE, ex motability, <32000 miles from Car Giant. On an 09 plate for £10k.

Picking it up on Tuesday afternoon.

Cool.

Nice road holding, lovely solid feel, once you get used to it it handles like a much smaller car, you just need to boot it into the bends.

I think the shocks can suffer early from the extra weight, but apart from that a genuinely stalwart motor.

Our one was black, and it looked a lot smaller than it was.

Congrats!

:)
