    My general rule of thumb when buying any car is:
    1. buy private
    2. no more than 2 owners
    3. be very fussy
    4. no more than an average of 10k miles a year
    5. FSH
    6. when you find a car you are happy with get a vehicle check done on it
    generally it takes me 2-3 months to find a car I am happy with and most times I know I within the 1st 5 mins of looking.

    something like this, but it would have to be a different colour for me
    http://www4.autotrader.co.uk/classif...69jd?logcode=p
    or maybe this, but 3 owners in total

    Vehicle : vauxhall vivaro

    Trim : Basic

    Mileage has never been a massive issue with me.

    More the type of use.

    Ie a 100k ex company car will have been regularly serviced an mostly motorway miles.

    Where as could have car same year/ model with 30k worth of town driving could have only had 1 service etc.

    Take each car on its own merits. Try and buy private if possible as can question owner to use etc.
    Look for service history receipts aswel as stamps if no receipts ring garages from stamps to confirm as these days you can buy a service book pre stamped on eBay.

    Previous owners. How many? How long has the most recent owner owned car for?

    Once you've found one your happy with make sure you arrange a second viewing as you will always see things you missed the first time.
