Another vote for Mk1 Focus, loved mine, it was used purely as a station and work horse car. You could leave it overnight at the station, it'll still be there the next morning, door dings etc, no bother. Bloody annoying from a principle perspective. Go out, car covered in snow/frost, start first time every time, the heated windscreen was awesome. The only issue is rot, mine was scrapped because of rust had set in underneath. The body shell was; given the dings it sustained was fine. Saab 9-3, especially the Sportwagon Aero - I would happily own one now. Same with the Alfa 159, the Sportwagon version, both lovely looking cars.
