I'm looking at buying the previous generation Ford Focus, the 1.6 TDCi 110hp five-door. There is also a 90hp version available. Was the 110hp released in Ireland from 2009 on? Are there any major problems to date with this model? What sort of money would I be looking at for a 2009 1.6 TDCi Zetec 110hp five-door with about 40,000miles ?

Petrol or diesel? I want to trade in my 1998 Toyota Avensis (automatic, 100,000km) for a newer model Avensis. I have €4,000 to spend and I drive approx 11,000 miles per year. My question is two-fold: what trade-in value should I expect for my automobile and should I go petrol or diesel?

I need a seven-seat SUV and can get a Nissan Pathfinder with 73,000 miles from a dealer with warranty etc. They are giving me the best trade in price and I have to pay €2,500 with my own 2007 Volvo S80 D5 (with 172,000km on the clock). Is it a good deal and what do you think of the Pathfinder?

Hi, I bought a Mazda6 1.8 petrol, which does not have a desirable emissions rating. This means that Park Motors, who sold the automobile to me, no longer wish to know me as regards possible trade-in etc. It's the same situation with many other garages! Am I stuck with it?

Hello I want to change my automobile next year for a 2012 diesel and have narrowed the choice down to a BMW 520d or a Honda Accord 2.2-litre. I would love to go with the BMW but am a bit worried about owning it after the three-year warranty is over. I know the Honda is rock solid but I have had three Hondas in a row and would love a change. Could you give me some advice please?
