What used Mitsubishi Space Wagon MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Mitsubishi Space Wagon MPV?

It may sound odd, but the Space Wagon is a desirable motor for families with three or more kids. That and its reliability have kept prices higher than average, and also means you shouldn't lose a fortune if you keep it for a year or two and sell it on.

Poor fuel economy is one of the downsides. The 2.0-litre only returns 30mpg, while the more powerful car offers just under that. You'll get slightly better figures out of a Ford Galaxy or Renault Espace.

Servicing could also be an issue, because the Space Wagon needs a check-up every 9000 miles, compared with 12,000 on the Ford.
