Is the Peugeot Partner a cheap to run van?

I would like to purchase a cheap run around van. I wouldn't be putting up 4,000km in a year. I saw a 2000 Peugeot Partner with 115,000km on the clock and was wondering if  they give much trouble -  electrical, engine, gearbox, bushes, doors, etc. and are parts pricey?

What car-based van will I buy?

I currently drive a 2005 Toyota Avensis saloon - 1.6-litre petrol. I travel up to 450 miles every week to work so I'm looking at getting a diesel car, maybe a VW Golf van, Peugeot van or Skoda Octavia. Don't really know to be honest.

I don't mind a van as my girlfriend has a Ford Focus that I could use whenever needed. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
