    Default 3.2 SRI V6 advice required

    Hi all new to the site.

    I'm looking at buying a 3.2 V6 and was just looking for any advice you have. I have been getting mixed figures for the MPG ranging from 28 to 38 depending on the driving. Also how much do owners pay for the road tax again mixed info with people telling me it's just the normal and others saying £400.

    Thanks
    chris

    Trim : GSi

    Engine : 3.2 V6


    Mileage : 39k

    Default

    18mpg here, though that is all urban short trips with a big grin, high 30's on motorways though. Tax is still £205-ish pa, but that may well change in the near future.

    How many miles & what year is the motor and is it an ex police car?

    I average 21mpg according to the computer and i dont drive like a grandad, the motorway figures the others have mentioned are about right aswell. 12 months road tax is £210 the higher rate was scrapped and now only applys to vehicles built in 2006 onwards.
