Qualified in Bangernomics ? What car should I get ?

Here are the requirements...

Not more than 6k chfs .. to last 3 years (so I'll be looking for a fresh(ish) mfk).. and then throw it away
Needs to transport 4 people plus a mid size dog (so Combi or 4x4)
Won't be driven more than 7k per year, mostly short, urban hops
I don't care about fuel consumption
I'm not too fussy about year and/or kms on the clock.. if it 'looks right'
I'm not too bothered by performance.. but don't want a tractor

Ideas ?

simply visit car-dealers, look around, make a pick, have it checked by someone if you can't do it yourself, buy it.
I buy all my cars like that.

Check with Dougal whether he considers a Saab 9-5 (with fresh MFK) to be a good idea.

Saab 96, Sonett, or Fiat Panda 141 would be my choices.
