What used Honda Shuttle estate will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Honda Shuttle estate?
Decent residuals and limited supply mean the Shuttle isn't the cheapest or easiest MPV to buy used and, while it's unlikely to bleed you dry, running costs could be lower.
When it comes to maintenance, for example, Honda dealers tend to charge less per hour than their rivals at Ford and Toyota, but more than Nissan and Mazda dealers.
Getting the work done at an independent Honda specialist can save you some money, but there's less of a difference between Honda dealers and Honda specialists than there is between dealers and specialists of other makes. The Shuttle has to be serviced more frequently than many rivals, too, having intervals of just 6000 miles.
The lack of a diesel engine means fuel bills will be steep - the 2.2-litre engine only averages 27.5mpg and the 2.3-litre 26.2mpg - and Shuttles attract rather high group 15 or 16 insurance ratings.
