Why are winter tyres not mandatory on rear-wheel-drive automobiles? I’m on my second Mercedes and know to switch to winter tyres each year. I rarely see other rear-wheel-drive automobiles doing the same yet such vehicles are uncontrollable in icy conditions - much worse than front-wheel drive. This is a serious safety issue not just for owners but other road users. I can guarantee someone will get killed if action is not taken. I suggest campaigns but also really dealers have an onus to notify buyers. Perhaps you could highlight as well.

I was going to give my automobile a service, but before I start, I was wondering is the oil filter hard to gain access to, as there are two pipes running above it; it's a 2011 Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI.
Any advice would be great

Done the pedal test on my dad's 2001 Opel Astra (it was running slow and drinking petrol) and got the codes p1122, p1120 and p1155; we were told these are to do with the automobile's computer and will cost in the region of €1,000 to replace the computer and reprogram. Is this correct or is it easily fixed?

Why does my engine warning light come back on after I got the two lambda sensors changed, which it said was the problem? My automobile is a 2003 Volkswagen Polo.

I am having radio trouble with my 2008 Ford Mondeo 1.6, radio model 6000CD. The stereo goes to phone mode and won't go back to radio/CD; only way to get it to reset itself is after the automobile has been locked for over an hour.

The glow plugs on my diesel Mercedes are poor and it will not start easy when it's hot; with an NCT due in a month's time I worry it may fail due to the heat plugs. Will it?
