I remember seeing an Audi wagon a while back (was looking for a Diesel for a friend of mine) that had the TDI. It was reasonably priced, and may fit your criteria.
Audis are very troublesome, according to Consumer Reports. However, they don't delve into specific engines and so the diesel might be a bit better... it would be a seven-seater diesel, although the backseat is reputed to be quite tiny.
