What a number of these vehicles have in frequent is recognition amongst taxi drivers. Clearly there’s just one outdated hybrid, and it wears Toyota badges. It’s not that roomy, however all of the necessary bits carry on going, though ultimately the drive battery goes to wear down.
Due to this fact, a Passat or Octavia property is a greater quarter-million-mile possibility, I reckon. I’d take a 2000 Octavia 1.8 Turbo petrol with 80,000 miles to construct on over what stays of my life. It’s good-looking, it’s sensible and it’ll have a sure flip of laggy turbo velocity. The right mile-muncher, then.
What we nearly purchased this week
Chevrolet C10: This California-born Chevrolet C10 pick-up truck has been to an American specialist for upkeep after notching up 88,000 miles. At £15,950, we most likely wouldn’t have any spare pennies left over for Christmas, with our Boxing Day dinner cash going in the direction of the gas prices for its 7.4-litre V8.
