which car? - petsco
Morning all

we're looking at a couple of cars at the moment. Two estates - both september 2004, both the same price. One is a top of the range model, 1.9 diesel with 50k on the clock, the other is a more base model 1.6 petrol with 12k on the clock. Both have been on the forecourt for a couple of months.

I like the idea of diesel but we do about 8k miles a year, and the 50k miles in 18 months is making me a little wary.

What do you all think - which would be the model to go for. I'm erring towards the petrol - any thoughts/ideas?

And the cars are...

(My guess is VAG or Renault)
which car? - petsco
one of each actually. Stunning guess. Diesel is a megane, and the petrol is an octavia.
Personally like both of them a lot, but as the wife is pregnant again just want the most reliable.

Guess I should also say the octavia is in a franchise dealer and the megane in a private dealership.

The Octavia represents the best value here, 12K it's barely run in. The Renault is too high mileage, although these engines are tough the rest of the car has travelled 4 times as far as the Octavia.

If the mileages were closer then it might be different.

id go for the octavia..but only if its got some comforts like aircon and electric windows etc..
i had a megane estate last year for a few months we eally liked it but it was a 1.6 petrol.
