Would a Nissan Note be a good replacement for our ageing Volkswagen Polo?

We want to replace our ageing Volkswagen Polo. We've noticed that the Nissan Note seems good value due to poor residuals. We have £5000 to spend and expect to get about six years' service without too many problems. A petrol engine would be required, along with air conditioning and reliability. Any advice welcome.

Yes. An excellent choice and far more reliable than a Polo.
