    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.
    All sensible answers please..
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. E class is due a facelift next year look at the executive SE loads of extras chucked in and MB are giving about £4k contribution.

    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.

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

    And its not yours in 3 years, and it doesnt have a heated front screen, and it will cost more than 20k. ;-)
     
  9. Who needs a heated front screen?

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