if you need the space and with that budget, I would suggest you to consider a Kia Sorento or Hyundai Santa Fe instead.

Not sure about these brands, I’ve seen Merc B180 2009 model used car bought in 2019 and running smoothly still with repairs from standard mechanics for oem new parts within 2-3k per year.. so that’s why encouraged by that for used car

The B180 from that time is a much simpler car compared to those you listed here.
There's no turbo, no AWD system, electronic also much simpler (a friend complained his car's HU didn't even have Bluetooth support). Therefore, there's less things to fail and require fixing.
As long as it's well care, the interior should still be holding up.

Yup. The road tax & insurance i did not include it in my 5k budget as it is for maintenance. But for E90 320d since it is almost 10 years the insurance coverage & road tax also reasonable nowadays. Anyway Audi been always famous for higher cost maintenance, my mechanic did most continental cars also feedback that in term of the big 3 Audi will always cost higher compare to Merc or BMW for equivalent model range.

An uncle who used to work with one of the big 3rd party workshop which does service and parts for conti cars advised to stay away from recond or out of warranty Audi if possible (among the 3 brands)
