Should my Skoda EGR valve be covered?

Hi guys,

I just bought a 2010 Skoda Octavia from a local small time dealer just five months ago and he gave me a six-month warranty. I had been back twice with the automobile losing power and he told me it was a filter. Just last week the automobile wouldn't start too easily for me and now the dealer put it in to a main Skoda dealer and they have said it's the EGR valve and the small dealer says he won't cover this under his engine and gearbox warranty.

So my question is, where do I stand here on this matter?

Is this Audi Q5 front-wheel drive?

I'm interesting in buying an Audi Q5 and intrigued by the title of this automobile: '2013 (131) AUDI Q5 2.0 TDI 143 FRONT 4DR'.

Is it a quattro or not? When it says front is it just frontwheel drive?

We are looking for a automobile, ideally an SUV that will have three ISOFIX seats for three children under the age of three. This is proving hard to find; do you know of any?

If not, can you suggest a suitable MPV with an SUV look?

Thank you
