Hi, would you mind giving me some advice/warning re purchasing a 2007 Toyota Corolla 1.4 diesel saloon? It's a new model with 170,000km on the clock and it's advertised for sale at €8,000.

No major problems, as you might expect, but there are a couple of niggles with the 1.4 D4-D engine, specifically related to cutting out or difficult starting. It's usually caused by a build up of salt or grime on a sensor wire in the air intake. Nothing too serious but worth keeping an eye on.
Other than that, while the Corolla is hardly the most exciting automobile around, it's a solid, reliable, practical choice.
