As many of you know, I have been thinking of getting a small, economical 4x4 with a centre diff lock for a while now and I think I have finally settled on the car below:
My Astra is now exactly 10 years old and worth less than £800. Before the next MOT, I will need to replace the exhaust, brake discs and pads, get new tyres all round, do a full service and a few other bits and bobs need sorting just to pass it for another year.
It's a shame because I love the Astra and it drives perfectly well, but it is now worth more to me as scrap with the new government scheme, plus there are a few niggles as expected for the age and things that I don't like, for example it's only 3 door and has no ABS etc.
Anyone else in a similar situation to me? And if so, what are you planning to get?
