What car would you reccomend someone to buy? It would be used for a daily commute but not much else. Needs to be reliable, and economical as the two prime requirements. A 75 diesel might fit the bill, but with clutches and thermostats to contend with, maybe something else would be better as they will need to do a lot of miles. Also, low mileage ones are still relatively pricy.
My thoughts were maybe a 25 or 45 diesel. Certainly not as nice as one of our cars, but would you reccomend one to someone to put interstellar miles on? I had a 420 diesel from 10k miles to 130k miles and was pretty impressed.
Or would anyone suggest something else?
