What are your thoughts on an Audi A4 2.0 TDI with relatively high mileage (100,000 give or take)? 2008 onwards would only be considered due to lower tax. Anything to look for other than full service history?

Changing to a seven seater soon. Could you assess the merits of the Nissan Qashqai+2, Toyota Corolla Verso, Opel Zafira and Volkswagen Touran? Fourth child on the way so will need to use an extra seat regularly. Budget of €15,000 to €18,000 maximum.

My 2000 Honda Civic revs are going up and down between 1,000- and 2,000rpm while stopped. I was away for three months and the automobile was not used. Any idea what the problem is?

I have a question regarding Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems and wondering if you can clarify the EU regulations in regard to this matter. I keep a very keen eye on automobile specifications and I'm aware that these systems on automobiles are to be mandatory by a certain date but I can't seem get a definite answer. I notice many automobiles are including them as standard now and others only offer as an option. It might be worthwhile to inform new automobile buyers that this should be included as I think very soon they will be on all automobiles.
Many thanks if you can get to answer this for me.

Guys, my brother is looking to buy a seven-seater to lug his (many) kids about. Could you advise on the best out there? Budget is only €10k though. If it could deliver on boot space too that'd be a plus, but seven seats may eat into that. Reliability a big thing too (no unexpected bills in a recession if possible!).
Thanks in advance.

I have a 2003 Subaru Impreza 1.6 petrol saloon 4wd with approx 170,000 miles on the clock and an NCT until next March. I am looking around at the moment at other automobiles, and the Mazda RX-8 is taking my fancy. Just wondering would I be able to cut a deal with a dealer to sell my Impreza, whether it would be worth anything to me?

Which small convertible should I go for? I have a budget of up to €13,000 and would like a stylish automobile for a change from my 2005 Toyota Yaris. I do little mileage and would hope to buy something I will love for a number of years. I have been looking out for a Volkswagen Eos 1.4 with leather interior but these are not that easy to find. I have also looked at the Peugeot 207 CC 1.6 but am open to all suggestions.
