I looking to buy a second hand mid sized family car, it must be a diesel and priced around Â£3-4000. What reliable cars with good fuel economy should I be looking out for?

Really how so, my 1.9 TDI golf does around 50 urban and 55-62 on a run, its even managed 65+, my neighbours 1.8 petrol manages 35-40 on a good day and I have better performance too, even with diesel 10p per litre more I'm quids in. I would point out that even for a 3 mile run cold, I get 40 mpg, she got 23!

REMEbrat said:The Octavia has been binned as the car will really just be too big. On personal recommendation, after reading loads of reviews and looked at one in car park today I'm now looking at getting a Nissan Note TDCi.
