Currently looking at Merivas, thinking of buying one around 3-4 years old and want to spend (hopefully significantly) less than 10k
Want something with a higher driving position than my Corsa
Have a 3 year old and a 8 month old. Not really looking to do long journeys as we already have a bigger car (Nissan Qashqai)
Anyone have a Meriva that is around a 2010/11 plate? Do you like it? What are the pros and cons?
They get a good review by Which but also want some real life views too!
Help keep going round and round in circles!

It's just another bland mpv, a functional box. If I was looking for an mpv I'd get the most reliable model I could find - all mpvs are pretty rubbish to drive regardless.

Thank you. Actually sounds like what I'm after, as I'm after something functional and nothing flashy. Yes, reliable is good, I'll keep that in mind too.
Thanks again
Anyone else?
TIA

Had a 1.6 petrol as a hire car. Ok to drive. Comfortable and less boring than it looked. Lack of acceleration was almost dangerous on slip roads etc. crazily inefficient. Think it got about2mpg
