My son-in-law gets a new car every three years and the last two have been petrol Qashqais. They have been very reliable. I think the only issue was a failed battery which was replaced under warranty. He's just changed this month but wanted something a little bigger and has gone for the new Kia Sportage Hybrid which is a very nice car indeed and has a huge boot.


Encouraging :hmmm: Thanks, James

I don't like Skodas and Kias because the interieurs are too "plasticy".

If I were to buy a car today I would go for a Dacia Duster, which meets your requirement for easy access and the price is at the same level as a Monty Python shrubbery.

My thoughts are:-

VW Golf
VW Golf estate
VW Golf 4motion
VW Golf Plus
VW Golf Alltrack

Unlike other contributors I thought I'd give you multiple options, no sense being narrow minded.

Over the last 20 years with the wife, and the 10+ years previous I've driven...

4 x Cavaliers, 2 x Astras, Mazda3, Focus, Corolla, Fiesta, 2 x Terrano, 3 x Grand Cherokee, 406 estate, Escort, Touraeg,  Camry, 2 x Golf, X3.

If I could only ever drive one model ever again...

...Golf. Comfort, practicality, economy, service cost, driveability, handling, value, retained value.

I must admit that I agree with MJB.

VWs are great to drive and very reliable.

Also in trouble with emissions 'misinformation', are Mercedes, BMW, Nissan, Skoda, Renault, Peugeot, etc., etc., they've all been at it.

my present daily is a 2007 fiesta 1.4 DIESEL. Easily the most reliable cheapest to run car ive ever had--in 57 years of car ownership.

my late life crisis toy is an MG TF.

I've always hankered after a Cupra Formentor. The VW T-Roc is also a cracker (my physiotherapist drives one).
Don't know where they sit in your budget. You won't be able to afford my physiotherapist, but her car is awesome.

I had a T-Roc courtesy car while my Golf was being serviced and I hated it. My wife has a Seat Ateca, and thatís far nicer IMO, albeit slightly larger.

I do rate the Golf, itís my 4th. Iím less keen on the newest model, too much touchscreen stuff, I like buttons! But the mk7 is a great car IMO.

Edit: that said, the Qashqai et al are that bit taller, and I do Ďget ití. The wifeís Ateca is noticeably more usable, with a deeper, squarer boot space than the Golf (admittedly mine is a 4WD one, so loses some depth), and a higher ride height, without being much physically larger.

I thought I'd add my two cents worth having recently been through this process.

I had a Swindon built Honda Civic hatch with the 1.8 litre four and manual six speed.  After owning it for six years, and having built a healthy distrust for the engine gearbox combination, I decided to sell in December last year.  Whatever car I decided upon had to have good rear area, with the seats down, and an engine transmission combination I could trust with the air con on and be no more than two litres in capacity.

After measuring up the length, width, and height of the Civic rear space, as I needed to fit a module or two in, it was a case of doing the homework.  What annoys me most about modern car makers is they provide a volumetric figure for the car space which tends to overlook the usable space.  I then undertook some homework and narrowed it down to three hatchbacks:  Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Subaru Impreza.

To cut a long story short, the first cab off the rank was the local Subaru dealer and after ascertaining the usable space (length and width) was superior to the Civic I took one for a test drive.  The engine transmission combination was turbine smooth with brilliant safety features and a comfortable and well thought out driving position.  I didn't go any further.

It arrived on the 3rd June after a five and a half month wait.  Happy days!  :bounce:
