Looking at 7 seater cars such as q7 (also discovery 4 and xc90 if q7 should be avoided). The ones in my price range are around 2008 plate with around 110-140k on the clock. Would i be looking at a lot of work to keep the engine working in goos condition or do i not have a lot to worry about?

Is there anything i can ask or physically check when going to see and drive used cars? This can be for engine or anything else (e.g i know the disco 3 requires gearbox service due to some issue)

Have a look at the Nissan quashki great little motor and 7 seater. The disco in my opinion maybe cheap but the insurance is scandalous.

I love the new range; older range is not as good looking. Didn't know they did 7 seater models. Will look as i know nissans are known for reliability (as far as i am aware)

So far my 2009 XC90 D5 (185hp) has proven to be very reliable with average 29-30MPG combined. Bought it CAT D end of 2015 for £5500 with 95k mileage. Drove it to Spain and Portugal (averaged about 31 MPG during the trip).
I previously own an XC90 T6 (3.0 petrol) which was very thirsty and had gearbox fault - best to avoid this model.
My mate has a Q7 with all the toys, and seems happy with it, but he paid £20k for his (beyond my budget :)).
