    Default Mission Impossible: Used Diesel Commuters Car


    I am in the market for a used diesel car for my commuting to work. I cant seem to figure out which car to get...

    My "terms" :

    - Diesel
    - Automatic
    - Leather seats
    - Sporty driving abilities
    - Up to £10k price
    - Year 2006 - onwards
    - 50+ mpg

    I'm driving 20k miles a year so it has to be reliable and economic to drive, however i would also like the car to be a bit sporty and quick. Automatic and leather seats for my longer drives is also nice to have.
    And i would like to have a car that not everyone else has, i.e. not a Mondeo, Passat, C-class etc.

    What i'm thinking so far is :

    Alfa Romeo 159 2.4 JTDm
    Lexus IS220d
    SAAB 9-3 1.8 TTiD

    Do you have any other recommendations and which one of the mentioned ones would you choose?

    Thank you very much for the help!

    Welcome to the site tinsleyman, even though your wish list spec is rather high, you can pick up a BMW or Merc which will cover your list, as shown recently on 5th Gear, good luck

    I was seriously impressed with the Audi diesels.
