We're looking for a car around 10-11k that will tow a bailey 534 (up to 1500kg). Something economical to run & cheap road tax etc. Not a 4x4. Any help appreciated.

Anything that can tow 1500 kg will not be cheap to run or tax. Best bet is probably a diesel Mondeo.

Thanks I'll look at that. We have a merc estate at the mo and it's good on diesel. Tax is 140/yr which isn't bad for a big car. We've had it 2yrs and are ready for a change.
Any other suggestions would be great. I've found the car/van matching sites not too helpful as you have to know the car make and model. I could do with a list of cars up to 3years old that will tow our van. If anyone can recommend a website that would be good.
Thanks
