Which of these €4,000 cars are most reliable?


I'm looking to buy a car around €4,000. Had a look at the Audi A4, Skoda Octavia, Volkswagen Passat and Toyota Avensis. Which one from your point of view would be most reliable given all of them would be 10 years old and more.

Thank you

Hi Martin,

Go for the Octavia or Avensis according to taste - both have superior reliability (crucial when you're buying an older car) and the Avensis will, just slightly, have the edge in that respect.
