What battery should I use in my Triumph Spitfire?

I have a classic but every (fairish) day use Triumph Spitfire. The battery deteriorates in reliability if left unused for a while. Should I get a standard lead acid battery, as fitted by the original manufacturer, and condition using a float charger? Or is it worth, possibly additionally to the float charger, getting a calcium or silver battery? These would also offer a greater AH value and starting power for a cold engine.

Are there any tables that show comparisons of NOx levels in all cars?

I want to replace my diesel Estate with a petrol SUV. The Ecoboost engine would be a good choice but I believe the NOx levels are very high. Are there any tables that show comparisons of all cars?

My new car was delivered in bad condition - can I reject it?

I bought a new Jeep Renegade via Carwow. Firstly, it was driven to my home, from the dealer, which I have since noted is some 240 miles away. This was never discussed. Bad enough but it the actual mileage was 323 on delivery. Secondly, the driver had been smoking. I took the car out to get fuel as it was delivered empty and the smell started making me feel sick. My husband saw the car and not only smelled the smoke but pointed out the ash in the drivers seat and where the ash had been flicked out of the window. On closer inspection it was evident he had put food in the cup holder, leaving pastry and a sticky mess. I've asked them to come take the car away and have not driven it since I brought it home from the garage (20 mile round trip). They offered to pick it up and valet it but there are other issues such as a wonky dealer stick put on the paintwork and bumps on the dashboard as though screws underneath are close to the surface. I am sickened by all of this. Getting a new car is meant to be exciting. Am I within my rights to tell them to pick it up and refund me? Should I cancel my DDM? A reasonable sized deposit was paid, the balance financed. I have rejected the offer to repair but feel I am being mucked about a week since delivery. The Finance company has been told of the issues.

What is the cause of the electrical leek in my Fiat Idea?

My 2005 Fiat Idea automatic has an electrical leek problem. It doesn't hold its charge. If the battery is fully charged but the car is not used, the battery will be flat within a week. Do you have any suggestions to rectify this?

What would you recommend doing to keep my diesel Audi A6 Allroad well maintained?

I own a 2011 Audi A6 Allroad 3.0 TDI 240PS 6 speed auto with paddle shifts (98,000 miles). Other than 10,000 mile oil changes, what would you recommend doing to keep this on the road for a few years? It has had full Audi service from new. Is this the troubled gearbox I've read bad reports on? I sold my 2009 Audi A4 2.0 TDI 8 speed at 210,000 miles and am looking for similar again. I cover around 35,000 miles a year.

My MoT failed to pick up bald tyres and then it blew on the motorway - what do I do?

On March 29 my car passed its MoT with advisories on the exhaust and rear bushes. Today my tyre blew while driving and I had to call the AA. The recovery driver was disgusted at state of my tyre and wondered why I was driving with it so bald. On inspection, the opposite side was just as bad. He was even more shocked when I showed him my MoT certificate. I know an MoT can't pick up all issues but surely my tyres would be an advisory. What should I do?

Car MPG reading vs calculated reading - why the big discrepancy?

I recently purchased a 2015 Vauxhall Astra diesel 1.6 CDTi, attracted by the high quoted MPG of 76 (combined). I always calculate the cars MPG when I fill up, as well as recording the figure the car says. Having now done close to 10,000 I am surprised that my figures are always so far from what the car says, averaging 7.4mpg lower - both values are also much lower than the quoted MPG, with the car claiming 68.3 and my calculations yielding 60.8. I know that cars seldom reach the quoted MPG, but was wondering what would cause such a big difference between what the car thinks it is doing, and what it is actually doing, and whether this is common to all manufacturers/models?

Are there any good alternatives to the diesel Nissan Qashqai?

I am looking to change my Volkswagen Golf 1.4 DSG petrol for a Nissan Qashqai auto 1.2 because I need a higher car due to back problems. However, I'm concerned it will be underpowered on motorway trips. The 1.6 diesel appeals but I am worried about DPF problems because I'll be using it for mainly short journeys (less than 10 miles usually). Any advice or alternatives to the Nissan? It must be automatic.

Can I reverse the emissions fix by disconnecting the battery?

My SEAT had the "fix", which has ruined the performance and fuel consumption and will likely lead to EGR failure in the future. Can I reset it by disconnecting the battery? Slim hope, I know.

What car would you suggest for drivers over 70?

My parents are looking to replace their trusty 2003 Honda Civic with something a bit more up to date. They've tried the new Civic but complain it's too low for their aged knees. They are considering the Mazda CX3 but are wondering if that is the best of the bunch or if there is an alternative. They have a 2007 Jaguar XK convertible which they use for long journeys in the UK and Europe but want something more practical for everyday use. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

What insurer would cover a London black cab for private use?

I am looking at buying an ex London black cab as my new daily runner. Most insurance companies won't insure them because they say it's too old or it's not a usual car. Who should I speak to about insuring one at a decent price? Aviva quoted me over £5000 for a fully comp policy.
