Which used Nissan Primera estate should I buy?

The 2.0 petrol is the one to go for. It has all the muscle you need for load-lugging, doesn't drink too much fuel and is relatively easy to track down.

We wouldn't be averse to a 1.8 petrol, but you should steer clear of the 1.6 petrol - it's too weedy and no more fuel-efficient than the 1.8. The 2.0 diesel is hardy and easy on the juice, but is unrefined, so unless you're a high-mileage driver obsessed with fuel economy, give it a miss.
