I am ordering (PCP) a Skoda Kodiaq and want to order the 150hp diesel 4x4. I am seriously concerned, however, about diesel 'issues' and don't want to face any anticipatable difficulties in the short and possibly medium term.
The alternative is the non 4x4 150hp 1.4 petrol version. Have read several of the reviews, see some merits, but fuel economy seems poor and fear the occasions when automobile might be fully loaded. I appreciate no one can know what stance the government may take on diesel, but do not want equity eroded at end of PCP. I drive about 24k kilometres annually.

The air conditioning in my Honda Civic 1.5 Sport makes an infuriating whistling noise. Have there been any similar complaints? Is there a cure?
Thanks in advance

Hi guys, as the new rebuffed Nissan X-Trail has just been released with 2.0D 177hp engine, can it stand up against the Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 TDI in terms of performance, handling and quality? Outgoing Nissan SUVs were prone to engine and road noise as far as I am aware.

Currently driving a 142 Opel Insignia Sports Tourer 2.0-litre diesel with a view to upgrading in 2018. What hybrids/electric automobiles/SUVs are worth considering as an alternative, but will still give me the space I need as opposed to driving a box?
I mainly drive around my local town (Waterford) and surrounding areas during the week then at weekends I travel long distances going to hurling/rugby games in and around the Munster region.

Our Peugeot 207 has a problem that the mechanics can't get right. When engage (D) Drive, it loses power even when you step on the accelerator. However, when you engage (R) Reverse, it has all the power.
What could be the problem?
