I recently bought a 1.4 petrol Volkswagen Passat and the main dealer where I bought it gave me a six-month warranty. Should I have been given a 12-month warranty?

I'm driving a 2012 MK6 Volkswagen Golf Edition R (1.2 TSI). While I like a lot of things about the automobile I am increasingly frustrated by the significant understeer, lack of steering feel in general and the poor seats. I am thinking of changing to a BMW 3 Series M Sport (318d or 320d) around the 2009 or 2010 mark, using this as a trade in. I do very low mileage but I don't mind spending a bit more. Am I mad? I have a bit of a mental block changing from a 12 reg downwards.

I have a Fiat Stilo air bag problem; the warning beep comes on and it's displayed in the dash. It says 'airbag failer, stop' and it can also display 'engine failer, airbag, stop'. It's a 2003 model and has been like this for a while. I'm afraid in case the airbag will deploy. What should I do?
