As a family runaround we have a 1.0 Micra auto. I bought it at about 15k miles from an old lady who was banned from driving it is now on just over 5 and its been five years of relatively trouble free motoring. However, it is a 2001 and we are now in 2017 and cars and tech have moved on a little bit. Also, mum wants something slightly more prestigeAnyway. Criteria was small, auto, economical, reliable and about £5k or so second hand.
