Does my Audi A6 have ISOFIX?


I wonder can you help please? I have bought a 2008 Audi A6  SE (not an import, an Irish automobile); I am hoping to attach an ISOFIX automobile seat to the automobile. The automobile was advertised as coming with ISOFIX. Trouble is, I think I need a 'latch bracket' as part of any ISOFIX installment. I am not sure. Can you advise? I have two holes in the chassis.

Help, baby due soon!

Nissan Qashqai or Toyota Corolla?

Hi, would you consider a 2007 Nissan Qashqai 1.5 diesel to be as reliable as a 2007 Toyota Corolla 1.4 diesel of similar mileage and condition? I will be buying one or the other in the next week or so and my heart is saying Qashqai, but my head is saying Corolla - can you provide an independent insight please? I do 20,000 miles per year.

Many thanks

Loads of problems with my Opel Astra...


I have a 2006 Opel Astra 1.4 petrol. The management light is on and a mechanic said he thinks it's just an oxygen sensor, but recently my automobile has not been able to blow out hot air. The coolant seems to be gone, but it was only topped up recently and the engine is very hot after I drove it today and it sounded really loud when I turned on my air conditioning. Also, it is slightly vibrating and there is a whistling noise coming from the automobile.

Any help is welcome

What mileage to prevent DPF issues?

I have heard that low mileage on a diesel automobile can be bad for it. I have heard this can damage the DPF and other things. Many people think about the maximum mileage they consider to be ok when they purchase a used automobile. My question is this:  take the popular BMW 520d for example. What is the minimum mileage I can consider as being ok on a 2010/2011 automobile?
