We need a small family run around. We have between €5,000 and €10,000 to spend. My eldest daughter will be turning 17 soon and will be learning to drive, so this will be a factor as well. It will be 90% city driving.

I'm looking at a low mileage 2012 Toyota Avensis 2.0 D-4D Aura, but it appears to be a 2011 spec as the tax is €280. Would this be correct? Other than emmissions and tax would there be much different between 2011 spec and 2012 spec for teh Avensis Aura?

Hi, I am looking at a second-hand Honda FR-V (2009/2010). Is there anything in particular to watch out for? Are you familiar with the particular hand-brake lever in this automobile? I found it difficult to engage on my test drive and was wondering if that was just me.
