With a £4k limit and for what you want, I'd look at a 5 Series BMW. E39 shape probably.

If you've just got the one, anything should suffice as long as it has a large boot and has a good safety rating.

if you want a ford thats big then it has to be a mondeo estate or focus estate all fall under the 4k mark or get a volvo as there are loads of estates around.

Whatever you do. Don't get an E36 BMW... they are terrible for safety, your fiesta was like a tank in comparison. I think it got a 1 star N-CAP.

E36 BMW's are alot safer than a Fiesta IMO.

I can show you the pictures of why I say this.

Although I wouldnt get one if you had 4k to spend.

Get a VAG diesel engined car, Passat, A4 TDI, Boost y0. Reliability. Cheap the run ;)

i like the st170, some high milage ones around the 160k mark are oin for £3000 so i wouldnt mind knowing what condition they are in and how the actual car takes its miles as the newer generation cars cope with them better. Good ones go for around £5000 and in imperial blue :drool:
