Which used Honda Shuttle estate should I buy?
Early Shuttles were powered by a 2.2-litre petrol engine, but this was replaced with a 2.3-litre unit in February 1998. Both get raucous when worked hard, so the stronger 2.3's extra flexibility is worth having if your budget will stretch to it.
Unusually, no diesel engine was offered and the only gearbox is a four-speed automatic. However, this shifts slickly and is rarely caught in the wrong gear.
