    you should be able to pick up a nice coupla year old 2nd hand one in the UK in that price range.

    they're a dream to drive, I did Sydney to Cairns in 3 days (2400km) in 3 days recently and didn't suffer one bit. If I drive the old Hilux (my plaything) for more than 3 hours my backs screwd for a week.

    For all those suggesting 'nice' cars, in the UK we get slaughtered for insurance, especially at this age.

    I've recently bought myself a 2009 Golf in black. I rate it.

    But like Meathead said, i wouldn't want to have one at uni, unless you lived miles out.

    At uni I wouldnt really recommend buying a car.

    If you do I really rate VW. I have a golf tdi, awesome car reliable and great mpg.

    What uni you going to by the way?

    go for a 320d, you can pick a 2006 up for just over 5k. Its a bargain for the kind of car you get and fuel consumption is good too. Get either a black or white.
