Car Info

Looking to spend about 5000, doesn't have to be a new car but not too old.
The MUST HAVE thing is one or both front seats that can be reclined enough for sleeping. (marshal duties)
Thinking hatchback 1.4 -1.6 engine size, Focus is right size but front seats don't recline.
Car shopping taking place on 16th January, so a few to look at by then please.
Thanks in advance.

Not a specific suggestion, but in my experience of several Jap makes alot of them seem to have fully reclining front seats. So maybe a Toyota Corolla/Auris if they're in budget?

Otherwise, I think I'd be looking at a 3 door Astra, if the seats recline.

Ah, you didn't mention that.

You're not going to attract many young ladies in a Corolla...
