Depends how much you want to spend. I am buying a Hyundai I800 - hopefully fingers crossed xx Just put the deposit down :). Cheapest I have found for what I want without it looking like a minibus.

Ford torneo is quite reasonable my friend had one and loved it but she swapped it for a VW 8 seater and paid extra for the VW badge and had to go to Scotland from south Wales to collect it.

Hello I don't have an 8 seater but was told to stay away from C8 (my local mechanic) Even Citroen garage told me recently the C8 wasn't a good car, lots of problems, which is why they stopped making it. Have had Citroen Berlingo in the past which was a great car for childminding, very reliable and cheap to buy and run. I looked at a few C8's, one had electrical problems with the doors as the guy was showing me the car. In the end I bought an 04 Fiat Ulysse which is the same as a C8, yes the space and seats were perfect but the car itself was very cheap and things broke easily, a rear seat belt even came loose, fortunately it was an empty seat at the time. Needless to say that car had to go and I now drive a Kia Sedona and love it, best 7 seater I've had.

Probably not much help and some Minders on here have had success with a C8 so maybe you'll get a more positive reply soon!

I drive a C8, had it 2 years no problems at all. Love the electric sliding doors and have had adults in with no leg room problems and no problems getting children in the back row.

My dream car is the Hyundai i800 though...

yes I looked at that car but a little out of my price range, ill be sorry to see my zafira go I have had it 6 years now and it has never let me down, I have narrowed it down to a c8, Peugeot 807, a fiat uylsse or Citroen Synergie.... but with the comments I am so undecided think I need a lotto win then I could have my pick (I wish)
Thanks :thumbsup:
