inconsistant Posted December 18, 2022 Share Posted December 18, 2022 With the V70 sold and a few months of being down to a2car family and using the Mini convertible for all duties it’s unsurprisingly not working as a family car. You know your fleet strategy is flawed when you have to use a 41yr old Porsche for trips to the DIY store & for tip runs! The 924 is now safely tucked away in a garage for the winter so there’s space in our life (and on the drive) for a replacement for the V70. ULEZ is coming to our neighbourhood at some point in the not too distant future so we need a ULEZ compliant, petrol car. I’m done with diesels. Needs space for 4 adults, fuel efficient, easy and comfortable to drive around town and longer distance. And cost as little as possible but also be reliable. But what to get? Another V70? https://autoshite.com/topic/44824-volvo-v70-phase-3-2007-2016-what-do-we-think No. Alfa 159 estate or Honda Accord estate? https://autoshite.com/topic/48549-no-longer-fancy-an-alfa-159-i-fancy-a-2007-honda-accord-am-i-mad/ No. Volvo V50? https://autoshite.com/topic/51721-volvo-v50-or-not? No. BMW 3 series estate? https://autoshite.com/topic/47628-communal-bmw-e9-3-series-thread/?do=findComment&comment=2573317 No. So, none of those then. But what DO you replace an awesome V70 with? Well, I’ve had a fancy breakfast (a fluffy coffee and a chocolate muffin that's been sitting since yesterday), had the first of many poos, and been dropped at the station. Hold tight and let’s see if this all works out… Coprolalia, Carlosfandango, AnnoyingPentium and 6 others 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
