    8k tug

    Apologies all For those still interested here's an update 😒 After buying a new no plate and booking a tow bar fitting the company said "their insurance policy did not cover caravans"!!!!! Stuff it I said let my buy my own. (original plan) Do please help my head. I've narrowed down to 2cars VW Passat 2.0diesal estate and Skoda Superb 2.0hatch of estate. Opinions on the following please 1,DSG box v Manual re cost mpg and repairs /reliabity on approx 64plate 60000miles 2,Overal running costs. Co2 service etc 3, Driving dynamics 4,Desirable car/spec Sorry to be a pain but I've had company cars for 25years so this is a big thing I want to get right.

    8k tug

    After my OP when I wanted to get my own car I was told I had to have a work car which is a Navara N300 double cab with hard top cover . . Loads of power :-) but mpg seems terrible 33/34 solo ? Literature says low 40s, and I know you never get that , but are people getting more than me ??

    Caravan is 1450kg. Re auto box was because I dont have too much car knowledge, just what I have been advised by friends. Reason I asked about Skoda and Vw and not suv card was for mpg and ability to do 100,000+miles

    Thinking of a new tug and narrowed my search down a bit it will be second hand , around 8k and wondering what is best for that amount . I am trying to stay clear of auto boxes due to potential expensive repairs . Skoda superb Skoda Octavia Skoda Octavia scout VW passatt Any other contenders I should look at ,and is an estate any better .? thanks Dave

    Car ?

    Thanks for advice lads . I wish I did not need a big car ( comes with the territory if you own a caravan ) . I do 300 work miles a week which is the reason I want economy . How are Skodas on high mileage used cars ??
