What's the most reliable petrol car for taxi use for a £7000 to £8000 budget?

I'd suggest a Kia Cee'd. They're very good value for money and you'll get one with the remainder of its seven-year warranty. Also consider a Toyota Auris or Honda Civic - both ought to be very reliable. Also consider a Honda Accord if you'd prefer something bigger. The Vauxhall Insignia represents very good value for money, too.
