I'm biased being German and a fan of VW, but I'd go with the Passat, too.

The only "but" with the Passat is the insurance. Might be high for a first time driver.

Skoda maybe then.
It's basically a VW, since Skoda is a VW brand.

That one has 129.000 Kms on it. Remember that this is first time used car; In a few years I HOPE to upgrade to something newer and better.

Skoda maybe then.

100k seems fair enough to me for a first car especially if you want to move on to the next car in a "few years" anyways.

YMMV depending on how much and under which conditions you need to drive though. :)

Either the Mondeo or the Avensis. Where are you from, Spain? 2L will damage your pockets.

I personally find the build quality of Vauxhalls to be naff.
