I am in the market for a bigger car due to an imminent change in family circumstances. I'm also about to change jobs, going from an urban commute of about 20 miles a day to a 100 mile round trip, all motorways. I'm really interested in a CR-V, budget means I'm looking at something about four years old. Unfortunately, as I'm only about a third of the way through a PCP deal on my current car, I'm going to have to swallow a bit of negative equity into the new purchase. My questions are: 1) Taking into account c.20k miles a year on the motorway, will a diesel lead to significantly lower fuel costs? 2) Given my budget, I can expect to be buying something with around 50k already on the clock and will need to keep the car for at least 4 years. Is the CR-V something I can rely on to go beyond 130 - 150k and not present too many issues? I should add that I'm coming from having 3 Alfas in a row, and have been able to put up with certain shortfalls in reliability but need to be able to trust the next purchase to get me to work without getting on first names terms with the local dealers! Thanks in advance. I think my mind is pretty much made up but I suppose I'm looking for further reassurance.
