Lynne Gould is 61 and has a five-year-old Jeep Grand Cherokee that was bought to tow a caravan. There is no longer a caravan in Lynne's life, so now she wants an alternative vehicle, which will on average cover 11,000 miles a year economically. It will be required to accommodate Lynne's 84-year-old mother, often a grandchild – plus there is another on the way. Lynne also occasionally needs to transport large items, so needs space when the rear seats are laid flat.

Craig Treeby is due to retire at the end of the year and lose his company car. He does want to continue his hobby as a beekeeper. Craig's dream is to become relatively self-sufficient, which will mean having a car that is tough, and that has a decent carrying capacity – or could tow a trailer. Craig will keep the car for at least a decade and plans to run it into the ground. His budget for a new car is £15,000-£17,000 but he would actually prefer to find something second-hand for half that.

Sheila Borwick has just retired and has become very interested in beekeeping. As a consequence she would now like to buy a vehicle, which could accommodate all her bee kit. Sheila has three apiary sites, and gets called out regularly during the season to collect rogue swarms. Sheila does not expect to cover a huge mileage and believes that a diesel, van-based people carrier could be the answer. She is, though, open to all sorts of suggestions and has a budget of around £6,000.

Jane Foote wonders whether she is asking too much now that her Peugeot 307 can no longer cope with an alsatian, one baby and another on the way, and all the pushchair nonsense that comes with that. So, is there a car out there which is not just spacious but is economical too? Jane has £5,000 to spend and is thinking along the lines of an estate car. However, she is completely open to all ideas and suggestions – which is just how we like it.

Shirley Moffat has a three-year-old diesel Fiat Multipla and wonders whether to replace it, but the family still needs enormous amounts of space. Shirley and her husband have daily 50-mile commutes on rural roads. Another Multipla is a possibility, but she does not like the local Fiat dealer. Her budget is £14,000.

Pauline Graham has an old Rover 400 which needs to be scrapped and a Ford Ka which is getting too small for ferrying her children – ideally, she would like something that can sit four children. Pauline also needs a commuting car for a 50-mile daily journey with good fuel economy. Her budget is £5,000 for each car.

If you're not already angry about the refugee crisis, here's a history lesson to remind you why you really should be
