I have €6,000 for a compact MPV...


I am thinking of buying a Ford C-Max, but I do not know which one: 1.8 TDCi: I have heard of problems with cutting out and also problems with common rail; or 1.6 petrol Zetec, but the problem then is economy is less and it's an old engine.

I do about 10.000 miles a year. If these are no good can you recommend something else?

I want to spend about €6,000.

Thanks for your time

Hi Andy,

If you're only covering 10k a year mileage then you're probably better off in a petrol, so go for the 1.6. It's a solidly reliable engine too. If you want some alternatives, then maybe have a look for a Toyota Corolla Verso or a Honda FR-V, both of which come with pretty frugal petrol engines and are hugely reliable.
