What do you suggest for a used family car for under £7000?

I want a used family car for under £7000. I'm looking at the Peugeot 3008 1.6/2.0 HDI? Can you suggest any alternatives for space and price?

The 3008 is a unique crossover between an SUV and an MPV. Some timing chain trouble with the 1.6. See the car by car entry.
