Diesel car recommendations
There seems to be quite a few people on here that know about cars so this is worth a go:
I currently drive an M reg Escort LX 1.6, which although mechanically fine, is likely to fail its next MOT due to the amount of corrosion on the bodywork. So it is probably time to scrap ir or at least get rid to someone who wants the work.
As I have started doing quite a bit more driving (roughly 180 miles a week) I would like something pretty economical, moreso than the Escort, which from my crude workings out seems to get me 45-50MPG already.
Was thinking of a mid to late 90's Peugeot 306D 1.9, since they seem economical, reliable, cheap (£1000 is my absolute limit) and cooler than my current car (though not a lot isnt tbf)
Decent choice, or is there anything else worth looking at for that price? (It doesnt have to be diesel, but economy is key for me)
