Cross Climate Tyres

With the winter fast approaching I'm thinking of fitting Michelin Cross Climate Tyres to my A3 as soon as the existing tyres wear out, which will be soon. However the Michelin Website indicates 225/45 R17 94 W tyres for my Audi, but the car came fitted with 225/45 R17 91 Y. My major concern is that the "W" rated Tyre is a lower speed rating than a "Y" tyre. Also the 94 load rating is for 670kg rather than 615kg. Michelin say the tyre is fully compatible, but I'm just concerned about any insurance or warranty implications from driving round with a difference spec tyre especially with the lower speed rating, although I'd never get near the theoretical maximum speed of either tyre.

What to replace a 15 year old Golf TDI?

My 2000 Golf 1.9 TDI is nearing the end of its life 200k miles and now multiple electrics problems. I'm looking to spend up to £6000 on a replacement that I'll keep for around 6 years. I've seen a 59-plate Mazda 6 Estate 2.2 diesel 100k miles, all the bells and whistles for £5000 but have read a lot about dpf and cam chain faults. Or a Ford Focus 60-plate 1.6 TDCI with 76k miles but have read about lots of clutch problems. £5000 Ideally would have another diesel Golf but despite all the recent negative press, everything seems priced out of my range with 130k + miles. Which would be the best Golf to go for?

Suspension transit blocks left in place for three years

My Volvo V60 was supplied to me from new with all four suspension transit blocks still in place. At the third annual service, they were spotted and removed. Up to that point, was the car safe and legal. Do I have any recourse?

Fuel consumption test?

For the last 18 years, I have kept a record of fuel consumption in a spread sheet of the cars I have driven, from 1997 to 2002 when I drove company cars. After I retired I kept the spread sheets going. I always base these on tank full to tank full checks since average mpgs from trip computers are notoriously optimistic. Having suffered the cost of replacing the diesel turbo on my Jaguar X Type earlier this year, I decided to run on Shell V Power Nitro diesel, initially in an effort to avoid a repeat of turbo failure . In addition, from a detailed analysis across 2,000 miles on each fuel grade, I have recorded a 7.5% increase in mpg using V Power Nitro.

Can petrol pumps give short measures?

I filled up with Shell V power at my local filling station today. Previously I have never been able to get more than 42 litres of fuel in, today it took 49 litres and still hadn't shut off. I have a 62 reg Polo with a tank capacity of 45 litres. I hadn't spilt any fuel, there were no puddles on the floor. I mentioned this to the till person but she denied knowing of any problem. Who is the body to report my suspicions of short measures please?

L200 load capacity

Mitsusbishi is claiming its new L200 has the highest load capacity of any of the pick-ups. As its towing capacity is less than many of the competition, how is this calculated (I presume it's related to GVW but none of the manufacturers seem to publish all the relevant figures).

Which large used cars have low insurance and depreciation?

I expect to be working in the UK for about a year and want to buy a used executive saloon while there, then resell before leaving. What models combine lower than average insurance and depreciation? I'm thinking between 3 and 8 years old, ideally a still current model.

Replacement for a Land Rover Freelander 2?

I bought my Freelander 2 when it was three years old. It's now eight years old and has, unfortunately cost me masses in almost continual repair bills over the past couple of years. I'd love to replace it with a Discovery Sport Ingenium, but they're more than I can really afford. I'd like something either new or maybe up to about a year old. I don't have a fixed budget in mind, but ideally no more than about £30,000. I will probably keep it for at least 5 years.

Honda HR-V replacement?

We have owned our 10 year old Honda HR-V for five years, now 105,000 miles and apart from one ABS sensor it has been trouble free. We are now seeking a replacement with a similar raised driving position and good load area. We want petrol engine, quiet, and would buy used under 50,000 miles.

Saab servicing - should I stick with the main dealer?

I own a 2006 Saab 9-3 1.9 Tid Automatic 150PS model. With only one Saab dealership left in Ireland, should I keep main dealer service? Would other garages have Saab diagnostic equipment. I also seem to have a loud screeching noise on acceleration - any ideas?

Mazda CX-5 for sale as a Cat D - what to look out for?

I am looking at a Mazda CX5 that is a Cat D. I understand I need to ask whether the airbags have been deployed but not sure what else I should be doing. We won't be p/x as we keep our cars for a good 10 years so understand it will be difficult to sell. What checks should be be doing, and can we rely on the bodyshop paper and/or an HPI check?

Volkswagen claims it will buy back cars affected by emissions scandal?

It is reported that Volkswagen will buy back cars where the CO2 in "correct" testing is 10% or more different to the published values. Does it mean therefore if the CO2 figure is actually 10% higher in retesting that the fuel consumption will be 10% worse than originally published? If so, is fuel consumption retesting as well as CO2 levels required?

Oil change in a Volkswagen Golf

Since buying my Golf I immediately had an oil change done and have continued with a 5-6k oil change interval. My driving style is a mix of motorway and the urban London. Should I continue with the 5k interval oil change? With such a oil change regime at what mileage should I clean out all the oil feed pipes to the turbo, is this necessary? How often should I change the cam belt?

Help with Ford Powershift clutch packs

Last year my B-MAX 1.6 auto was in and out of a dealership while they tried to find the cause of juddering when accelerating out of corners or up hills. Eventually a new clutch was installed under warranty. A year later the same fault developed. The car has been in the dealership four times over past months, the latest for four weeks so far, during which time the warranty ended. They still have my car. Ford will not acknowledge there is a known problem with the transmission. The car has only covered 22,000 but I have lost all confidence in it. I am going round in circles with Ford Customer Care who keep asking me the same questions but do not seem to be getting anywhere. Any suggestions where I go from here?
