Wife is very worried are old Vectra is showing its age Looking at a 2003 Kia, but it has small leek near the rad I think, is this car any good. Did want  Freelander but son say no way they have big problems.  But what is best for towing Vectra was pretty good, BUT as I am no spring chicken want some thing easy to get in and out off as well.

Stumped, but not out.

I've got a Kia Sorento. Changed from a Mondeo. It's ok but as a short (5ft 2) woman I find it not a comfortable ride. Other than that I have had no issues. Mine is a 58 model. We originally changed as our van was a bit heavy for the Mondeo. Can't fault Kia though. It went back in for a couple of minor issues just after I bought it and they sorted all of them without any quibble.
We have friends who buy only Kia Sorento's and we took their advice.
I also wants a freelander but balked at the prices!

Hope that helps.

Why a 4x4 for a trailer tent?????
Most small cars will tow it, and will be a dam sight cheaper to run

I have been towing with auto sorento's now for 10 years. For towing a caravan the best i have had in 40 years of towing, but why to to a trailer tent?. The age of motor you are looking at be careful because there are some of that age that are old dogs, and if you make a mistake repairs can cost more than it will be worth, especially with DMF,clutch or transfer box failure.

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
