The collision avoidance system and traction control keep switching off on my 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. When I switch off the engine and restart everything is ok again for approx 20km when they act up again. Any ideas?

My stop-start stops working for about a week or more, then starts working again each time the car stops. Why is this? Should I get it looked at?

I've been driving a beautiful Audi Q7 for just about a month. Is it a big deal that the start-stop just completely stopped working? Also, the front parking sensors are no longer going off when I pull up in front of another vehicle or when I pull into the garage; however, when I back up it works.
Can you please give me some advice?

Looking at a 2013 Audi A1 1.4 TFSI S tronic. Am I right in saying these engines are susceptible to the timing chain stretching and a hefty repair bill if it does? Would you steer clear of this engine or, generally, any of VAG TSI/TFSI engines pre-2015?

I have a 2002 Volkswagen Golf and lately it has began to start chugging when driving. It happened tonight and was worse than ever and then the oil light came on.

I bought a 2006 Skoda Octavia TDI a few weeks ago. So tonight in the dash there's a red light on and suddenly the steering is very heavy. I don't know what's wrong with my car. I checked all the fuses.
