Another "which car should I get" question

in Motoring
3 replies 479 views
Hi all,

I've seen lots of these threads like this on here and hope you won't mind answering another, you were all really helpful when I asked about diesel.

I am doing approx 70 mile round trip to work each day so need something nice and economical, about 40 of those miles are motorway though so I want something that feels useful enough too. With about a £2k budget.

I've narrowed my search to 1.4l petrol :
Seat Ibiza
Ford Focus
VW Golf

As I can find 2003ish ones with around 60k miles on them. I don't want to go much older than that if I can help it). I've not ruled diesel out if I come across one but from what I've seen so far on my budget and the miles I do I think there's not going to be much difference in running.

Any thoughts/warnings or suggestions at all please?
