Buying a used family estate.

A Mazda 6 2004 estate bought just two months ago as a car that would give two-years trouble-free motoring turned out to be rotten underneath and a turbo fault led to camshaft damage. The car is not worth repairing. Can you recommend a replacement suitable for a family with two very young children?

Mondeo Mk III estate. Petrol cheaper and more reliable.
