I am having radio trouble with my 2008 Ford Mondeo 1.6, radio model 6000CD. The stereo goes to phone mode and won't go back to radio/CD; only way to get it to reset itself is after the automobile has been locked for over an hour.

The glow plugs on my diesel Mercedes are poor and it will not start easy when it's hot; with an NCT due in a month's time I worry it may fail due to the heat plugs. Will it?

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

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!

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
