I'm planning to buy a automobile for our aupair. I saw a cheap Kia Automobileens (2004) I could buy from a dealer for €2,350. I'm wondering how economical and reliable this automobile is. I'm not sure Kia would have been as reliable then as it is now.

My friend is considering buying a new Toyota Auris 1.2 Turbo petrol and was asking me for some advice. Is this engine the same as the Puretech one made by Peugeot, as I know Toyota and PSA share some engines, etc? Or is it made by Toyota themselves or is it a BMW engine? I would almost rather if it was much the same as the PSA Puretech one, but is this so?

I have a 161 Mazda CX-5 diesel and I am hoping to change it next year. As I don't do much mileage, approx. 12,000km per year, I was thinking of changing to the petrol model. Do you have any opinion on the CX-5 petrol model good or bad? Or should I stick to the diesel? Apart from anything the petrol is cheaper to buy. I would very much appreciate any advice you could give me.

I'm in a top spec '07 BMW 3 Series 2.0 petrol auto with only 60k miles. I love the automobile but need more space. Any recommendations you have would be greatly appreciated. My overall budget is max €14k (€10k plus €4k that I hope to get by selling privately, as dealers are only offering me €3k). I would like to stick to a premium brand, and would buy a used estate version of my current automobile, except they're all diesel and I don't do enough mileage to warrant a diesel engine.
Many thanks and best regards
