Hello gents ! Don't know if the right place to ask or the right place for this thread, but here it goes. I need to replace my old dying '97 Passat.I will not buy a brand new car, i want a used one. I want a sedan with good mileage.I make aroud 15.000 km /year and 80% town 20% highway trips. Now, the budget is around 7000€ top. Had a debate with few knowlegde people with hand-on experience in car repair and received mixed opinions. Some said that diesel is not a option anymore(diesel gate just confirmed their theories) and go with a japanese petrol sedan, Mazda, Honda or Toyota. Some said that diesel is more economic and get a used VW, Skoda or KIA. For now, i am looking at Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Acord and some other models. Well, i would like some input here, maybe will get the whole picture laid out more easily, and decide what to buy.
