Always wanted an MX5 but our household never had any good reason to get a second car. Changes in work mean I now need to do 2 weekly commutes of 50 miles (motorway) each-way.
So I am looking for a reliable workhorse (that also happens to be a cool MX) – nothing flashy, just a well-maintained one.
I have a budget of £10k.
-Does this figure sound reasonable for a reliable one that is not going to require a massive maintenance budget?
-What is the oldest/highest mileage would you consider to get a reasonably trouble-free one?
-Any models/options that are better avoided if reliability is key?
Thanks for your help.
