I'm thinking of selling my Toyota Corolla

I have a 2002 Toyota Corolla 1.4 VVT-i petrol, which has just passed its NCT. It is the newer type model for that year and has 138,000 miles on the clock. It has never given me any trouble and is in good nick but I'm doing about 340 miles a week in it and it's costing me about 60 Euro a week in petrol. If I were to sell it private how much would I expect to get?

What diesel automobile will I trade in my Mazda3 for?

I'd like to trade in my 2007 Mazda3 1.6 petrol and change to a diesel engine. Fuel economy and lower tax would be important as I cover around 360 miles a week mostly motorway driving. I'd like a roomier automobile in the back for two children and a bigger boot. Was thinking of a diesel automobile or SUV. What would my Mazda3 be worth on trade-in?
