Wiz don't go the Mondeo route unless you are 100% sure about the service history especially the timing belt replacement. If the belt goes on that model you may as well scrap the car its so expensive. I would stick with the Japanese cars if I were you they are the most reliable. Keep well away from Citroen and Peugeot they are a nightmare.VW are good, Volvo are solid. I have a 56 Vauxhall Astra and I have had very little trouble with it.
