    Seems cheap? Or is that the going rate?

    Doesn't seem cheap when you see the mileage.

    Buy on condition, not mileage. 50k without an oil change could be end of life.

    Taxi's normally get sold a round the 300k mark.

    Impossible to say - get a good one and you'll do double those miles easily, but get a bad one and they can suffer massively expensive failures at a quarter of that mileage. But offer them a few hundred less and see if they'll bite. At least you've got some pennies saved if it does go pop.

    I'm really long way off buying. But my next buy I want to be more careful and calculated. Do like that one though , and will keep my eyes peeled. If it's got a decent service history and looked well after could get away with mileage then. Thanks.

    Paid off money I borrowed from work today so 100month better off. Think I'm looking at my insurance going down to around 800 year up front from 250month currently so will be able to save better Jan -April. So.ideally I'll get something that's cheaper to run or equal to run in cost but better for family.

    Only liked the Vxr estate tbh, old man test drove the diesel one the boot space is unbelievable especially when you also drop the seats flat. Was for the four dogs but even they would look lost in the normal size of the boot.
