    My car

    Noting the chaps who have had loads of problems with the TDCi engines - this is just to say that, on the the other hand, mine has now covered 145,000 since March 2002.

    The turbo pipe did fall off and split twice, but the engine still got me home, all be it with a strange wooshing noise coming through the air vents when you accelerate. Other than that, the car has just required normal servicing.

    I have no plans to change it yet. It still drives like new and has loads more space than an Ausi A4 and costs less to service. (The CD player has been used with copied CDs since new, and I have never had a problem - ee earlier review).

    My car

    We upgraded to the 2.0-litre Ghia from a 1.8 Zetec estate because that car seriously lacked power and torque in first gear, which was often a bit of a worry when loaded with two young children and lots of kit.

    The 2.0-litre Ghia is so much more powerful and crusies effortlessly in the fast lane of the motorway. It doesn't feel liek a big car at all and is never a problem to park (no doubt down to the skill of the driver!). It is expensive to run and usually does about 27mpg.

    I am considering down-sizing to a Focus C-Max but wonder if it could compare in performance.

    My car

    I owned the ST220 before I bought my Titanium X estate. I wish I'd bought the ST TDCi - it's a far better looker than the Titanium X.

    That's the only snag I've got with it at present. I was impressed with the mid-range torque, but it's still a diesel when you get out of the power band.

    It doesn't handle as well as the ST. It handles well (don't get me wrong) but when you compare it to the ST, it's not as good.

    My car

    Extremely comfortable large estate, though not as quick as I expected considering the 3.0-litre V6 engine. It's very expensive to run, usually only returning around 26mpg.

    One of the more sporty looking estates on the road.
