    What secondhand car to buy? 16th Oct 16 at 10:29 AM
    I've currently got a 56 reg Honda's done over 140,000 miles now and I'm wondering I find it's time for a change.

    I want something slightly bigger with more boot space...considering something like a Vauxhall Zafira. I've also wondered about a Kia of some kind. I want something that's economical and low to tax. Any recommendations? Looking to spend around 9k.

    1972 V8 Range Rover. Free Tax, its fairly economical, 18mpg on a good day.
    Run it on gas = equivalent of 30+mpg.

    But its free tax and under £150 a year insurance with zero no claims required.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    Get a Ce'ed estate petrol or something, Focus, whatever.
