What would 5k buy?

Hey all.
Old man agreed his '06 Kangoo has had its day - dash has more lights than a christmas tree, ABS goosed and now there is a whine off at least one bearing.

He is keen for another Kangoo but of all the ones he is sending me links of im not overly impressed. Im telling him Caddy but other than Gumtree im not sure where to start looking! What might 5k buy?
Cheers

Hi, try the auto trader website. You’ll soon get a good idea of what you can get for your money. Just remember to check the description, as the price may say £5k but then at the end, it’ll say plus VAT. It caught me out at first!
Hope he finds a good’un!

I had a similar task over the last few weeks and it’s torture if you/him are as picky as me.

I viewed 20 plus caddy’s before I found the right one, but I think you have a lot more choice in the uk so it might not take as long.

eBay has the most choice I'd say. It's the only place I look when I'm buying a car these days.

So. After much discussion and deliberation I managed to sway him away from a Kangoo! Didnt get him in a Caddy tho- but into VAG none the less. He has laid a deposit down on a Yeti! Oh well 😂
