Is the Hyundai i30 a good replacement for my Skoda Fabia?


I had four Skoda Fabias in the last 16 years, never had any problems, but I am looking for a slighly bigger automobile. I like the Hyundai i30 and going to buy a year old next week. Is this a good move? I like the long warranty.

Audi Q5, BMW X3 or Range Rover Evoque?

I'm thinking of buying a mid-sized SUV and have narrowed my choice down to a BMW X3, Audi Q5 and the Range Rover Evoque. The Range Rover has the pedigree, but to be honest, I'm not going to do serious off-roading, I just want to cope with difficult weather conditions that sometimes crop up down the country and drive on the odd muddy track. Also, I understand the mpg figures quoted for the Evoque are a bit optimistic and to be honest, I can't but feel that the Evoque looks a bit girly!

The BMW ticks a lot of boxes, but seems a bit dated. I'm leaning to the Q5; it looks the part, has a decent engine, recent upgrade and seems to be a good all-rounder. Can you give any advice on choosing between the three? Also, I'm thinking of going automatic and again I was wondering if you had any advice in that department?

Is the Land Rover Discovery a good buy?

I am after a good 4x4 for work, the vehicle will see a lot of hill-climbing but not too much bad off-roading. I am looking at a 2008 Land Rover Discovery. I have to say it is like new, but for the mileage I will do (i.e. 500+ per week), do you think it'll be reliable? If not what would you recommend?
