What's best large estate for £7500? Must be petrol and automatic. Could also be tempted with MPVs.

Definitely not a 2005-2011 Passat. 2007-2015 Mondeo maybe, but the 2.0 EcoBoost auto was twin wet clutch Powershift and these have had as many problems as wet clutch DSGs (though not as many as dry clutch DSGs). S-Max great in theory but not brilliantly reliable. Galaxy more commodious. Don't dismiss a late W211 E Class or early S212 E Class.
