Hi all,

I need some sage Mk4 knowledge and experience, please

Quick bit of background info - I’m moving jobs, my current car is a company car, and that goes back to the company at the end of this month. I have ordered a new (personal) car, which was meant to arrive soonish, but appears to now be more like Sept. Our family (2 of us) only has the one car, meaning we’d be carless in July/Aug/Sept. So I need a car for 3ish months, which I can then (probably) sell on once new car arrives.

I just want something cheap and cheery. I don’t need anything especially exciting, but I want to not have to think/worry about the car. Also, we’re going to the Belgian F1 (august bank hol) and will be driving there in whatever car I get. Other than that, I can’t imagine I’ll be doing massive mileage, it’ll mostly be for getting to the shops and back.

(thanks for reading this far)

I want to spend about £1500

This?
Piston Heads

What do I need to worry about?

Don't rule out the 1.6 16v, mine's on 170k now and still running good. Cheap to buy, cheap to run, easy to service and maintain. Quick enough for a daily and feels solid on the motorway too.
