I am a disabled driver and I bought a 1.6 Nissan Juke auto and I am due to change next June; my question is what would you recommend? It must have ample boot space for mobility scooter or wheelchair and the seating position must be high up. Hand controls on steering column must be possible. I had a Citroen Picasso five-seater, which was ideal and fitted all criteria, but I would like to change to something different.

Is the mileage too high on this automobile? It is an imported 2012 (registered 21/5/12) 2.0 136hp Ford Mondeo Zetec hatchback with nearly 53,000 kilometres on the clock. Is it worth considering?

Hi, we're looking for a family automobile that will fit three child seats, not necessarily in the one row. We're considering a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe. How would you rate this in comparison to other family MPVs? Other options we've considered are a Mazda5 or Ford S-Max. Motor tax costs are fairly important to us. We had a loan of a Toyota Corolla Verso and preferred our current Ford C-Max, so it's out of the running for us.
Thanks for your help, Susan, Dublin
