I intend changing my automobile in the next two or three months. Currently I have a Nissan Micra, but I would like to buy a more solid and comfortable automobile this time. I do about 5,500 miles a year. I would be interested to know what make of automobile you would suggest and whether a diesel automobile is worth considering.

At 5,500 miles a year, diesel is most definitely not worth considering — you’re not doing anything like the mileage you’d need to do if you want to claw back the cost of buying a diesel in fuel savings, and maintenance costs could be high. As for which model to get, it kind of depends on your preferences. I’m getting the vibe that you’re not keen on the Micra, so maybe have a look at the likes of the VW Golf 1.0 TSI, Honda Civic 1.0 Turbo, or wait for a little while for the all-new Ford Focus or Toyota Auris to arrive.
