After 6 years it's time for the Smart to go, it's starting to break a lot and some extra seats would be useful. My girlfriend is shortly going to be starting a new job which means more travel and a decent reliable car is a must.
The criteria is as follows:
-Budget is £7k max, ideally a little cheaper
-Ideally something around 2 years old so it has some warranty left
-Not a Vauxhall
-No 1.0 engines, needs to be capable on the motorway
-No base models with wheel trims etc
So far I've seen quite a lot of 207's for good prices but I generally steer clear of French cars. The Suzuki swift seems like a good car for the money. Any recommendations?
