I need a automobile for just one year...

I need a automobile for one year. What has the best resale value and what year should I be looking at if I am to sell it in 2018 and recoup the best part of my investment, i.e. not lose any more than I would if I were to hire the same model and year automobile for 12 months? If that makes any sense.

Nearly new sensible automobile or older premium?


I'm thinking of changing my automobile, but I'm torn between buying a nearly new model like the Mazda6 or a three-year-old premium automobile from such as BMW, Jaguar or Audi with lowish mileage. Servicing cost of premium brands is also a concern. On the other hand, I can get a lot of automobile for reasonable money. Decisions! Decisions!

Your opinion greatly valued. Thanks in advance.

Anything to do to my Audi A4 TDI?

Hi guys.

I have a 2012 Audi A4 2.0 TDI. Currently 125,000km on the clock. Nothing has been replaced apart from tyres and anything done by Audi themselves during the three regular services it has had. Does any part(s) need replacing now at this point with the mileage and age?

Thanks, James

What petrol automobile to replace my Corolla?

Hello there,

I currently drive a 1995 Toyota Corolla 1.3 petrol hatchback and spend about 70 to 75 Euro a week on petrol. I get about 440 miles from a full tank of petrol. I have thought about buying diesel, but am worried about high servicing costs. Could you recommend some very economical petrol automobiles that are the same size internally and as roomy as the Corolla.

Make sense to go for an older BMW X5?


I need help. I am thinking about buying a BMW X5 2.9 or 3.0d Sport Auto from 2001, 2002 or 2003 as my second automobile and I don't have kids. How much would I spend per week putting diesel in? Is €3,000 or €4,000 a good investment for this automobile?
