T4 Post Icon used cars experience

Hi folks,

Looking for some guidance as I'm not really sure of this end of the market. Having moved from London, my sister is looking to buy her first car. Will be starting from scratch insurance wise but is 29 with her licence for over 10 years so hopefully that will help. Current requirements:

- Under 2k
- Reasonably respectable
- Insurable
- Comfortable and decent economy
- Capable of doing a 70-80 mile/day commute for a while

I know that she'd enjoy having something that's a good steer too but the main priority is cost to run & comfort.

A few suggestions I've thought of:

Any thoughts?

Lots of scams on ebay and gumtree.. Make sure that you see and touch the car before sending any money..

Check out EBAY VEHICLE SCAM ALERTS on Facebook

Best, most reliable small car, in my opinion is a Honda Jazz

Best forum for all things VW transporter in my opinion.. this one.
Why would someones first ever post relate to used cars that aren't even Vdub?
Just sayin...
