    All of the posted cars have a low mileage for their age. This does not have to be a bad thing but you should check the usual signs.

    The Peugeot seems overpriced.

    The Ford Focus is an okay car but the mileage is really low, especially for a Diesel. Additionally, 109 hp is on the low end for a car of that size.

    Of those mentioned I would take the Mazda 6, I guess. It's a simple and robust car. Furthermore, it features a cruise control and the price seems okay.

    All in all it's hard to comment on the prices as here in Germany I would get a 2010 Mercedes C with ~100k km mileage for around 12k €.

    The Mazda 6 seems like the best value for money. Also, they are remarkably reliable. The only largeish car that Mazda put out in the last few years with reliability problems was the RX8, and that was down to the stupid concept engine they used.
