MMMMMM I have a Skoda Yeti that is underneath a Golf 4 wheel drive with a 170 HP diesel , its not slow as it ran a 15.2 sec on the drag strip . Yes it will do 60 mpg but only if I get stuck behind some slow ******* , normally 45 but I dont drive slow!!
  Daughter has a Golf GTD and she loves it but then she drives like me---- (both ex drag racers) . And before you make comments the Yeti is butt ugly but so practical .
From my experience is no worse to work on than the modern Ashtray and I never found them nice to drive. Vague speedo markings as well , we had a Astra diesel run about at work thats 3 years old now and the sat nav/ display screen blew up twice.

How about a BMW Steve are they an alternative ?
Yes, Mick, gonna try and point her towards a 320d  :y



Or.....take her to a car supermarket and let her browse. You never know, she might just fancy a 12 grand Citroen or something  ;D Anything to keep the price down  ::)

You're right, of course, Albs  :y
Just had a thought about the 320d. RWD, that would keep her on her toes  ;D

In normal everyday driving, rwd / fwd doesnt make any difference in reality to the average person.

What year did that happen? It won't be a new one, we don't do new.

Why not go  for a petrol turbo rather than this turbo derv crap?.

Diesels have gone form saving the planet 10 years ago to killing the planet today.

Personally speaking I'd  only go the derv route if the car could be bought for buttons.

If you like the Golf go for the Golf R.......about 300 PCM on a PCP deal*

Looking for something for Mrs O currently, looks like it's going to be a Seat Ateca 2.0 tdi and possibly the 4wd version. We had a 1.0 petrol one on lease a few years back which was great but I don't trust the longevity of the little 3 cylinder turbo engines.
