Oofers are usually very picky about which cars they would buy and which to avoid.

For example, french cars seem to be frowned upon.

I think that for your budget and needs Kate, a car that has been looked after is more important than the make.  :)  And they are out there, you just have to be patient and keep your eye out.  ;)

As to French cars, if you see a Peugeot 406 estate with the 2.0 ltr HDI engine, that's been looked after, has a long MOT and is in budget, grab it!  :y

Inevitably though with bangernomics you either throw them away or end up spending time and money.  ::)

They're usually like cheap vans: barely hanging on.

For any given price range you might get a better Seat Alhambra than Galaxy[they're the same vehicle along with the VW Sharan]if that's the sort of thing you're looking at.Don't forget to get the full carrying capacity in the early ones you have to take the seats out completely-and they're heavy!]Basically set your budget and explore all options for the size/carrying capacity you're wanting with as long an M.o.T. as possible[check M.o.T. history on line] and hopefully you'll drop on one that doesn't need too much spending on it too soon.

This one needs a bit of TLC, but the guys off travelling on the 18th so needs to get rid, if he still has it then offer him 100.   ;D

Everyone who has had a Forester raves about them, so it might be worth a bit of effort if you can get it cheap! :y
