What's the best used car for £10,000?

I’m looking for a used car with low mileage for my son’s partner. It needs to be reliable, reasonably stylish and preferably one owner. Any thoughts? Thank you.

A Ford Fiesta's a pretty safe used car choice. It's stylish, reliable and there are plenty about so you can be picky about condition. Also consider a SEAT Ibiza or Volkswagen Polo.
