What used Chevrolet Tacuma estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Chevrolet Tacuma estate?

A Tacuma shouldn't be too costly to run. Average fuel economy of 35.3mpg for the 1.6 and 32.8mpg for the 2.0 isn't stunning - but falls only slightly short of a comparable Renault Scenic or Citroen Picasso, two key rivals. The Tacuma is much cheaper to buy, although there's no diesel option.

Servicing costs might sting, and of its nearest rivals, only the Kia Carens is more expensive. The 1.6-litre Tacuma sits in group 8 for insurance, the 2.0 in group 10, which is standard for the class. Only the Renault, with its five-star crash test rating, outsmarts all its rivals with much lower insurance ratings. Reliability data from Warranty Direct suggests that, as a manufacturer, Daewoo (as this Chevrolet was originally branded before 2005) is slightly more reliable than average, and repair costs reasonable. If you're buying a car under three years old, you can enjoy the remainder of the three years' free servicing offer, and a solid warranty.
