What used Vauxhall Zafira MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Vauxhall Zafira MPV?

The biggest problem with Zafiras is the need for cambelt changes every 40,000 miles. Each one comes in at around a few hundred quid.

Apart from that, your bank manager would be relatively pleased if he saw a Zafira on your driveway - apart from the GSi Turbos, perhaps, which are in a serious hurry to get to the next petrol station. Except for the turbo model, fuel economy is good across the range, with our favourite 1.8 petrol returning nearly 33mpg.
