70k is not a problem in a honda, they will go forever!! on any other car, 70k is alot and i would be weary about buying with that many miles, but hondas will go alot more than that, i bought my sol with over 80k, mos civic is 90k i think!
try autotrader or pistonheads

lol! yes... no saxos! lol

civic... go for the 1.4 model. insurance depends who and what you go with, have any ideas atm? im with admiral, have been since the start, and for a 1.3 fiesta i was 1600 fully comp per year, bit steep but i paid montly which made it better. you should have a shop around the companies

its not too many miles if ur gettin it for free Razz

my sister paid 900 a '95 corsa about 3 or 4 years ago and it ran perfectly never needed any real maintenance and cheap insurance and it was high mileage so if ur goin vauxhall around that age ur probably gonna be fine

thats my best guess anyways Smile

Yeh go for age wise Corsa's are good i got a 1995 n reg for 350

Don't get a saxo they arent to good in crashes, get a honda civic or a astra, corsa,fiesta etc..

Yeh don't want anything big or that for your first car
