LEANING TO DIESEL
I AMdriving a 1997 Subaru Liberty that needs to be replaced, having served me extremely well. With the price of fuel, my thinking has shifted to perhaps a diesel sedan. Safety is my first priority and the vehicle generally transports only one person. I do not want it to be tiny and had hoped to get something a bit away from the basic model this time around. What are your thoughts on the Peugeot 407 ST HDi, or can you suggest something else? I’m not opposed to a small 4WD. Suzanne Smith
email The Peugeot is OK, but the Volkswagen Jetta would be a better choice. If you are happy with a manual gearbox, also test drive a Mazda3 diesel.
