    Thanks Phaedra, I'll start it off with these bargains I found.

    MINI Countryman Cooper SD 4x4 with Chilli Pack now 1499 was 1999 (Manual 1399)

    New Nissan Qashqai 1.6 Auto Tekna (all the bells & whistles) 1799 (Manual 1249)

    New Nissan Qashqai 1.6 Auto N-TEC+ (some of the bells & whistles) 1149 (Manual 599)

    I've currently drive a Manual Qashqai Tekna and it's an excellent car and I highly recommend it.

    The MINI was a good drive but suffered excessive road noise, however it has such funky good looks that I think I may have to choose it over the Ford CMax, which is obviously a very boring car.

    VW Golf Match 1.4TSi DSG auto 649, fantastic value for low mileage users. Volvo S60 SE Lux Auto 2999, fantastic spec and a 31 grand car.
    Will have a look later to spot others.

    Much better driving and better specced car than the Volvo is the Mondeo Titanium X at a lower AP and includes Climate controlled front seats and DAB radio in its package as well as what the Volvo has.

    Mondeo is about to be replaced soon, S60 is fairly new and I think looks better.

    S60 is not very large inside compared to the Mondeo. Whilst the Mondeo will be changed in a years time or thereabouts, (this Volvo from 2010,) this is still the better driving car of the two, lauded by all motoring magazines, whilst the Volvo, based on old technology, has a noisy deisel engine and a less satisfying ride. Add to that the better spec of the Mondeo better fuel consumption and it's a much more rounded car. Can't agree about the looks, the Volvo has too many sharp edges and looks unfinished at the back. The only thing going for Volvo is its perceived safety.
    The Volvo "Floating centre console" used on both the S & V 60's look horrible and the heating switches are far too complicated for what it does
    Still it will look better than the future Chinese developed Volvos to come.....
