What five-door diesel hatch will be troublefree?


I am think of buy a 2010 five-door diesel car; tax and mpg don't bother me; I just what something that will do 35,000km per year for the next three to five years without engine trouble.

Hi John,

If it's a lack of trouble you're looking for, you need to be buying Japanese or Korean. So have a look at a Toyota Auris, Honda Civic, Hyundai i30, Kia cee'd or Nissan Pulsar. All of those should do annual mega-miles without trouble or complaint.
