I have €9,000 to spend on a used automobile. What's the best out of these three diesels to buy? A Renault Mégane, Ford Focus or Citroen C4. Some Méganes seem to be six-speed so which would be more economical and reliable?

I currently own a Ford Focus C-Max - a 2005 model with a TDCi engine. Unfortunately I destroyed the engine when I drove i to water. I got a second hand one from a 2010 C-Max and took it to my mechanic to fit. The mechanic has swapped the new engine into it, but it won't start. He told me he has swapped everything possible from the old engine but it's doing nothing. Any advice would be gratefully received.
