I need some help with a decision please. I’m thinking of buying a 2.0-litre sDrive BMW X5. Probably a 171 model. I know there’s a new model coming very soon, but I don’t mind about that. I’m a little worried about the N47 engine that I think this automobile has. Should I be worried and is there anything else I should worry about?

We have been looking for a good reliable quality practical family automobile and deciding to go with a Skoda Octavia 1.0 TSI, as petrol suits our mileage - very short during the week and longer drives on weekends. My question and only reservation about the three-cylinder 1.0 TSI Octavia is its durability. Skoda and Volkswagen have a good reputation, but my only concern is how many years can be got out of a small engine in a big automobile? Have you any background into the work the manufacturers have put into this technology. and how durable do you reckon they will be? I've only heard great things about it, but I've heard a few non-Skoda drivers dismiss this engine.
