Two young professionals, career minded, one 14 month old child, might ? have another later, both 29/30 yrs old. Need second car as a family car, commute (40 mile round trip country B and A roads), family visits (100 mls round trip), want the space. Approx 15/17k mls per year
So decided ... estate and diesel.
2007 Skoda VRS estate, all the trimmings 54 K mls fsh etc....
2006 Jaguar X type estate 42 K mls fsh etc
Both same price.
I said the Jag would be the better buy over a 4/5 yr period ( that is what they think) as it would hold it's value better, but then I am not a 30 something !!!!
Not sure i could live with myself if every time i looked down at the steering wheel there was a SKODA badge looking back. It may have good engine and be fast, but a turd sprinkled with gold dust is still a turd.
