Topic - car-buying advice needed

Kimono - on 19 Feb 2013
Having spent most of my life living in cities and never owning a car, i find myself on the verge of moving to the countryside (North Wales...lucky me!) and in need of some transportation.

However, i know very little about cars. So, am looking for advice on what type of (second-hand) car i should be looking for.
I want something economical (i.e. good mpg and preferably in the lower road-tax bracket....sub 1.4L?) , probably a hatchback with room for a bike in the boot, and generally reliable. Maybe around 3000?

any advice?

I am also wondering whether i might be better off going to a reputable dealers rather than private. If so, how much more could i expect to pay over a private sale.....500?
