What do I look for?

I am going to swap my trusty and reliable Rreg Scenic dti for a newer model or a Xsara Picasso, but deep down I fancy a Scenic 4x4 but there is a few niggling question at the back of my mind I need answering first before I get all excited and set my heart on getting one,

First of it will have to be a diesel of course, cos I've now got used to 50+mpg so I was wondering what can Iexpect from a 4x4 ?

Secondly will I be liable to this 4x4/gas guzzling road tax they keep going on about on the news ?

Next up what do I need too look out for eg; noisy gearbox due to extra load etc..?

Lastly is their any specific faults or recalls ?

Or do I stick with a mk2 Scenic Dci or a Picasso and not worry about the above ?
