Well not new, but you know what I mean.
Time to downsize to one motor, with two neither are getting enough use and regularly need the booster pack to start. If we have one, it’ll be the only car to use and we might not have the issue as much. That’s one excuse, the other is that the kids are rapidly outgrowing the abilty to sit behind me or mum in the Clio.
So I’ve been looking around, and the little seen GolfPlus seems to tick all the right boxes with sliding rear seats to give more legroom at the expense on the boot. The Skoda Roomster does it as well, but that doesn’t appeal as much as the Golf.
In the market for a 2005 model, high mileage isn’t an issue as we bring high mileage cars back down to normal and hence don’t depreciate as much. I’ve settled on the 140bhp 2.0 diesel, getting so bored of having nothing in the Clio under the right boot, and the few MPG we lose, I don’t care about over the advantage of power over the economy. When used, it’s packed up with kids and luggage anyway, so needs the power in my opinion.
The only thing so far from Beck is that it’s not Silver :lol: When asked about a car, “can we have a red one please” was the reply Not allowed to have just the one large or even mini 4x4, they are all just horrid and useless off-road, so I’ll be hiring for offroad days, I don’t seem to be able to find the time at the moment anyway.
Really struggling to find one s/h that fits the bill, a couple of options but not many and all the review sites have the downer that they depreciate more than the normal Golf, yet the spec I want is almost (found one) unfindable.
Off to test-drive a brand new one later this week. I specced up the one we are testing, 34K worth of motor !!! The 2005, 80-100K on the clock are £5-£6K excluding chopping in the Clio and/or Freelander.
