My Honda's head gasket has gone twice in nine months!

I got the head gasket done on my 02 Honda Civic 1.4 last September (2010) due to burst radiator. Now it's gone again after nine months. Would this indicate it was not fixed properly or just bad luck?

Regards, Tom

My automobile has a problem at idle

Hi,

I have a 2004 1.6-litre Skoda Octavia. At idle the automobile chugs as if it is about to cut out and sometimes acceleration fluctuates. What do you think it is?

Thank you

Can you explain what 'VAT' qualifying means on importing a automobile from the UK?

I am considering buying a automobile in the UK. Can you clarify what 'VAT qualifying' means? Does this mean that I can get the UK VAT back but I have to pay Irish VAT and VRT? I realise VAT is payable on automobiles less than six months old.

BMW X5 or 5 Series?

Hello,

I would like to buy a BMW and have a choice between a 2008 X5 or 2011 5 Series. I need something with a big boot that is also reliable, as it will be family transport for five years. At the moment I have a Nissan XTrail and am worried about going back to driving a low seated automobile. Thats' why I am considering the X5 and also because I don't like the X3. Could you give me some advice please?
