I am looking to buy an estate automobile, driving mainly around Dublin, the odd long journey. Do not want to spend more than €6k. What would you recommend? Needs to be reliable, fuel efficient and have a big boot preferably with fold down flat rear seats.

There’s lots of choice in that price bracket for an estate. You could go posh with an Audi A4 Avant TDI (you’ll get into a 2007 model for that budget), or big and practical with a Toyota Avensis (2011 or thereabouts), or sporty with a BMW 3 Series Touring. However, you’re probably best going for a Golf — that budget gets you a 2008 or 2009 Golf Estate, which is roomy, practical, reliable, and nice to drive.
