What new hybrid would suit my aunt's use?

Hi,

My aunt is looking at buying a hybrid. She currently has a 2010 SEAT Ibiza with 40,000km on the clock, which is in immaculate condition. As indicated by the mileage she doesn't do much driving and what she does is city and suburbs. She's interested in a new hybrid (as opposed to electric - she thinks it's too early in its development) that is reliable. Ideally she'd like an automatic, but doesn't want to pay a huge premium for that. Her budget is €20,000 plus the Ibiza.

What would you suggest?

Thanks

Enda

What to clean Mercedes Artico with?

Hi,

I have a C-Class Mercedes with Artico imitation leather interior. The "leather" is starting to crack the same way real leather does, (not badly). Do you know the best way to maintain the appearance of the seats? Presumably, the normal leather treatments won't be of any use, or would they?

Thanks

Philip

What do you think of VRT rates and imports?

I understand that the import duty tax has risen from 10 per cent to 11 per cent as of 1/1/19. Do you think it should or could increase again after Brexit in order to help save the motor trade in the Republic and to try persuade people to stay and buy Irish? I feel that if the import duty tax went to 12.5 per cent it would stop people going to England or up North. What is your opinion on the matter?

I have to change my old 2002 Renault Scenic and I'm just wondering which would you recommend I go for: the Renault Kadjar or the Kia Sportage? I would probably be looking at a 2017 model.

Thanks

The collision avoidance system and traction control keep switching off on my 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. When I switch off the engine and restart everything is ok again for approx 20km when they act up again. Any ideas?
