My Peugeot has let me down 1 too many times and now I’m heavily pregnant with DC2 it’s time for it to go.

I’ve got about £3k to spend, want something with lowish mileage (60k), with isofix and can fit a bugaboo bee in the boot. Would prefer something oriental, Mazda, Hyundai but not sure how small is practical with 2 dc under 3!

Ford Focus! This is my next car, they are work horses too and are classed as reliable.

My next option would be a Volvo however I don't know if you could get one with less than 60k for 3k.

Sorry just saw you want something oriental. What about a Hyundai i30?

If you can find one, get a Honda Jazz. Brilliant cars. Mine is 15 years old now - got it about 3 years ago for £3k and it's ace.
