Thinking of upgrading looking at a 08-12 model.

What you guys got and anything needed to be aware of or avoided?

Was thinking a Toyota Avensis...

Currently have an 08 mondeo wagon pretty sure it’s a similar engine to the Mazda wagon. I like it but everything is arse about face with indicators on the opposite side and things like that.

I remember my mkv cortina being like that. Indicators and lights on opposite sides to all other vehicles.
