    Got 20k to spend on a new motor. For me it's a tool to go from here to there, need big enough for 4 plus big dog -Ridgeback.

    Mercedes have some good offers on with low APR on PCP's. You'd be spending more than £20k but not if you handed it back in 3yrs.

    If you are bothered about servicing costs, Id avoid Mercs, Landys etc 20K will get you a 61 plate Mondeo Estate £115 roadtax. Or an Insignia Estate likewise, 50mpg plus fuel economy, full spec, leather sat nav, all the toys.

    I think heated front screen is standard across the range on Fords now, another nice feature.

    Mercedes E220CDI is same road tax and very fuel efficient. Fords really are shite.

    There is absolutely no need for you to exhibit such ignorant bias and prejudice.
