Why is my Toyota Levin leaking oil?

My 1999 Toyota Levin AE111 appears to be leaking oil. Recently I put in a new gasket. It looks like the oil is coming out the right hand side and collecting on top of the gearbox. I'm at a loss.

Any ideas?

Looking for a reliable family automobile...

We are looking for some good options for a really reliable family automobile. Nothing too big as parking in the automobile park my wife works in is a nightmare as it is very tight. We were looking at a 2014 Nissan Qashqai+2, a 2015 Kia cee'd Sportswagon and might look at the Skoda Octavia. Insignia looks good but it's a monster of a size.

The Qashqai+2 seems expensive for a 2014 model. Would it be a waste? We do mileage of about 11k to 12k a year. Are the automobiles we looked at above the best options or what others would you recommend and best engine to go for? We want a really good boot and rear seat space for young kids with ISOFIX seating.

Should I swap my Nissan for a Mercedes?

Hi there,

Thinking of changing my automobile this year from a Nissan to possibly a Mercedes GLA or B-Class. Are they similar? Can you help me narrow down my decision; should I change or stick with Nissan?

Thanks in advance
