I'm looking to replace my wife's 'T' Plate Ford Focus 2.0 Ghia and I'm really not up on the latest desireable makes models. I'm hoping I can get some suggestions here. I'm after a 2nd hand car around 3 years old. Due to a change in school the run is now horrific (40 Miles round trip twice a day) so she wants an automatic transmission to ease the journey and diesel would help with the fuel economy. Requirements Nice(ish) car (Ford Focus type level or better) Automatic Diesel Air Conditioning CD-Player Good Fuel consumption Reasonable servicing costs etc. Would like (but not essential) Estate Shape Leather We've seen an Audi A4 Avant 1.9 Diesel, but it's Manual which is a deal-breaker for my wife. I was rather hoping for one of the Japanese or European manufacturers than a more prestige German, but open to any ideas. Any suggestions? Cheers, Mark.
