Which automobile is best for motorway driving?


I am currently driving a 2005 Toyota Yaris 1.0-litre. Now I am planning to upgrade to a bigger automobile since I will be driving regularly on the motorway. My budget is around €3,500. What automobiles can you suggest that are comfortable to drive for longer distances? I have Suzuki SX4, Mazda3 and Skoda Octavia in mind.

Thanks in advance

Which of these 2010 SUVs to go for?


What would you choose betweeen 2010 Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 and Land Rover Discovery? Reliability; safety; and family functionality are the main criteria. I know all would have high running and service costs in particular the Disco and Q7. Image isn't important to me! I have 16, 15 and 6-year-olds and new baby soon, and a nutcase of a labrador havs to be accomodated!

Many thanks

Are our Citroen repair bills reasonable?

Dear all,

I bought a 2006 Citroen C3 two years ago (paid €5.6K, one owner, low mileage) and noticed recently that it was slipping out of gear when in first. Having had the garage look at it, they said the gearbox would need to be replaced fully (costing approx €1,000). It is also leaking coolant and needs the head gasket replaced. Total estimated bill approx €1,500-2,000. Is this reasonable? Are we right to be annoyed as the automobile has only 64,000km on it?

Thanks in advance
