2008 Toyota Prius High-mileage daily driver used for business and pleasure motoring. Bought at 117,000, but still reliable and efficient at 191,000. No reason to change it, so I'm not going to.
2003 Land-rover Freelander TD4 HSE Auto Bought in 2016 and now our second family car, used mainly by my partner but also for family drives/holidays. Underwent a recent expensive service, but still needs new glow plugs before next winter.
1992 Rover 827 Coupé Early example and a genuine 44,000-miler. A very tidy car that was displayed at the 2017 NEC Classic Car Show. Some 827-only parts for the Honda engine are getting scarce – notably a distributor cap sourced from America (see main text).
