24mpg in town & 32/38 out of town, not too bad realy, trouble is that once you fill up you just want to keep on driving.............. :)

fuel is not too bad. I would say 22mpg in town and 30mpg on a run. Depreciation is the biggest problem.

If you can afford a few grand for a car, you can afford to run it. Afterall, fuel is only a 1/3 of the cost of running a car if you do about 10k a year if you include tax, insurance, depreciation etc so if you can afford to buy the car, you can afford to run it.

Iwould tend to agree with you on that one unless something really nasty happens :unsure: but they dont happen that often and only if your really unlucky.. you will have your normal wear an tear to consider like tyres.. there has been a few threads on this as to which is the best .. what wears well and wheel alignment a few people have had problems but i think that was more on the older models..
