03 Nissan Presage comments please

Just be aware of what its actually going to cost you to run. Official economy figures are pretty much non existent (never a good sign) so ask around those who have one. Don't be under the disillusion that the 2.5 is going to be particularly economical.

If you are happy to pay the running costs go for gold.

Kaz would give you a better comparisson between those two. That said I would suggest you take a VW Touran for a try as well. The Touran has a much more advanced drivetrain and is mechanically the better car by a million miles. Normally people appreciate it costs not much more than half as much to run as well.

That said you may still prefer the ease of access in the Pressage for what you are doing. But worth a look none the less given its the same layout etc. Then you at least know you have done the rounds.

The VW would be the more nimble one around town.

Sounds like you are on the right track for your needs anyhow. Best of luck.

Personally I think a basic stereo you can easily change is a big advantage.Anything that is integrated into the dashboard is a massive pain in the arse.

As far as I'm aware theres little difference between the radio's in the different models. Unfortunately they are a bit of a pain in the backside because theres really nowhere to fit an aftermarket unit.

Technically, yes you could compare a MPV to a Presage. But having had the unfortunate experience of owning an MPV, I can confidently say a closer comparison for an MPV would be a big steaming pile of turds.

Sliding doors are an absolute god-send. Especially if you have kids in kiddie car seats.

You can regually get Touran's for about 12K.

Not sure exactly what you plan on spending but it might be worth sitting down with a calculator and looking at the running costs. The difference in day to day running cost may well justify stretching a little on the initial price to go for the Touran.

Like Kaz said incredibly bad advice.
