Hi all,

SO just got rid of my old 20 year old Audi and looking for something that is good on fuel and a little larger for sleeping in the back on security events. My budget is ú2000-ú3500. My old car was a 1.8T 200bhp and now im more about fuel range and costs to repair.

I have a few questions and hope you kind people can help

Is it worth looking at 4wd than 2wd? Reason i ask is that i do a lot of campsite security like woodlands at silver stone and good wood events and can get muddy.

I don't think ill ever tow, but is the 1.5 still good to tow or would i need to look more at the 2lt?

What sort of things should i be checking on older cars? Im selling a lot of 2007-2009 cars for my budget and want to know what could be costly to sort out?

Trims? i was told a tekna is better than a acenta? yes? no?

any other information you like to share would be great
thanks

Tekna has folding mirrors, but I had to modify my 2012 model to fold mirrors automatically when locking the car.  The mod is available via this forum if you search for it.

My 2012 Tekna has 360 camera but no parking sensors.

I sourced a great deal with the AA last year for my 1.2 Tekna - it was ú170 (I'm old and in a reasonable postcode). This year it rocketed so I switched to Hastings Direct at ú187.

I've just switched to a Suzuki Ignis and although it's group 17 compared to the Tekna's 15 the insurance with Hastings Direct came down...

I haven't had to deal with them for a claim though so have no experience of what they're like.

Have you tried the club's affiliated insurer?
