Looking for my first automobile with €2,000 to spend. Looking for something small like the Renault Clio, Opel Corsa, Nissan Micra etc. Any advice? Also what year/mileage should I expect for this price?

I am looking for a fuel efficient and low tax family automobile. I am looking at 2008+ diesel automobiles. I drive into and out of the city centre from Adamstown every day along the N4 taking 30 mins + each way. Should I be concerned about diesel particulate filters clogging up or should that be sufficient to regenerate? I'm looking at Passats, Mazda6s and Audi A4s.
Love the website.
Thanks in advance!

The speed limit indicator on my inbuilt satnav has never worked properly in that it shows incorrect limits especially 60km/h limits show as 40km/h. The automobile is 171-registered and has been back to the dealers several times. Renault Customer Service has suggested that they would fund the cost of a stand alone satnav as a solution! This seems to be a problem with the particular model of satnav. What can I do to resolve the matter after 16 months of frustration?

I would like to buy a automobile I'm used to second hand automobiles as I have a very limited budget. I'm still confused about the PCP option, scrappage trade ins and hire purchase. My normal route is to get a loan from my credit union, but the older my automobile is the more I end up paying for repairs. Could you help me in finding my best option because I'm a bit lost with it all?

Hi, I bought a 2.0-litre Hyundai on the 21st of July and went online to tax it this morning and Revenue wants 75 Euro back tax for July; surely that can't be fair?
