    What are his circumstances (single, or with kids?) & what does he want the car for?

    Anything from the VAG group would do so don't dismiss Seat or Skoda.

    Gutted, sounds like a nice cheap saloon type would suit then. So any of the above would see him right I recon.
    Deffo don't rule out the octo's my last 3 co. Cars have been octavia's and we'v had way less problems then we did when in passat's

    dont think he wants a estate or that size engine with electric everything, as he says he wants less spec (electrics) to go wrong. He needs to keep his costs (insurance,fuel) etc

    he certainly is a really nice guy i honestly dont know how he coped. known him for over 20 years, He is on the verge of going bankrupt also. passat looks best for value and quality for the money. He used to have a older passat years ago and had good luck in that.

    Sounds like he's been handed the sh1t stick big time, needs a break poor guy. Hopefully he'll continue keeping it together and find a motor that'll see him right.

    wow..thats a lot
    He really needs to get rid of that heap of sh*t he is driving now, he has had a lot of bad luck with the current car the engine blew up about 6 years ago and had to spend £££££ on a recon one

    Also consider Toyota Avensis or Nissan Primera, the local asian Taxi's must know something we don't know when it comes to running high mileage cars, both easily available for around £1k.
