I'm looking at getting a diesel Ford Mondeo, 1.8 or 2.0... For my price range (up to €10-11k) there are plenty available, but should I worry about a car that has 90-110k miles on the clock? Also, what about importing from the UK? Seems you can get a good example there for £6k - with the VRT on top I think it would still work out to be pretty decent.

I am looking to buy an estate car, 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.

I'm looking for a car for heavy commuting as I have a new job and will be doing 750 miles a week for 9-10 months (two hours each way per day). I have a 2008 Focus but intend keeping this as a second car and I see no point putting massive mileage on it. Instead I hope to pick up an older car and get a year out of it. I am considering a 2001 Mercedes E 220, but I'm a bit concerned about fuel costs. What other car would fit the bill, capable of heavy mileage, comfortable and reasonably economical to run?

I'm looking to buy a 2016 or 2017 SUV, 1.6 to 1.7 diesel, Manual gearbox with cruise control. I'm not too bothered by my most other factors, other than a decent comfortable motorway drive with good fuel economy. Can you advise which are the most fuel efficient SUVs for motorway driving in Ireland within this range? Currently, I'm considering a Kia Sportage or Honda CR-V or Hyundai Tucson.

I'm looking at a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.7 CRD with 185,000km on it. I can't say I don't like the price, but it does seem to be a bit on the low side. What to look for? What can be off with the car?
