Family car for few money, with comfort and power - solid but with glitches

Seemed impossible to buy when new given its tag price.
About 20 years later, these saloons are almost given away, even with little or no rust, like mine.
Maintenance needed for some parts, came to my garage with 130k miles to serve family trips, which I think it did. Many peripherals were about to quit, alternator regulator, water pump, reservoir and small other things like clutch pump (secondary actuator)...so they were repaired/replaced. Later on, some 30k miles ahead the gearbox blew (2009), and also the head gasket (2011).
Currently (2016) being a second car, low annual mileage...I want to keep running it if possible, for many years.
