Should I swap my Nissan for a Mercedes?

Hi there,

Thinking of changing my automobile this year from a Nissan to possibly a Mercedes GLA or B-Class. Are they similar? Can you help me narrow down my decision; should I change or stick with Nissan?

Thanks in advance

Should we stick with petrol or go diesel?

Hi there,

We do annual mileage of about 11 or 12k. During the week the daily mileage is only about 20 miles or so and on slower roads so speed only about 80km/h max. We would do bigger mileage some weekends on motorway. My question is, would we run into problems with a diesel automobile? We currently have petrol but looking to update to a bigger automobile with a 1.4-1.6-litre range. However, there are very few petrol automobile options it appears suitable for family size. each of the options seem to be diesel, which is fine, but I have heard that there can be mechanical issues if mileage and speed is not sufficient. Is that true?

Any advice much appreciated. What automobile options would you recommend to look at if going petrol or diesel?

Realistic future value of a Dacia Duster?

Do you know what mark up automobile dealers enjoy (bonuses excluded)? If I purchase a Dacia Duster Signature for €20,600 and after three years PCP plan a GMV of €8,000 and mileage of 16,000km total, would the secondhand value be €12,000 or more in your opinion? It would be an automatic.
