The wife and I are looking to buy a car in the near future, as she is likely to be giving up her company motor soon. Any thoughts on the 5-door Mitsubishi Colt? They're remarkably cheap on the approved used market and look to fit our needs which are:
Must be reliable for her daily commute
Big enough for me to cart around dog, rifle, luggage, deer, bits of timber, kitchen sink, etc. whenever needed.
Must seat 4 adults ok for shorter trips (taking her parents out now and again, etc) without luggage.
Must at least hold its own on the motorway for occasional 200+ mile journeys.
Any experience with the colt?
