The new Golf will have an electric parking brake. What do you think?

I see the new Volkswagen Golf Mark 7 will be fitted with an electric parking brake. Is this a bad move from a reliability point of view?

Should my MINI's catalytic converter fail so quickly?

I have a three-year old MINI One with 37,000km on the clock and have just been told by the MINI dealer my catalytic converter needs to be replaced. They have quoted me 800 Euro (300 for the part and 500 for labour) to replace it. Should a car of this age and mileage need the part replaced and should it be this expensive?

How long will a 2.0-litre petrol engine last?

Hello, I would like to know how much mileage to expect from a 2.0-litre petrol engine in its lifetime. My Honda has almost 120,000 miles done in seven years and I am wondering how much more I should expect.

Thanks.

Do Renault Méganes have electronic issues?

Do Renault Méganes have a reputation for electronic problems?

I'm seeing a lot of complaints online about electric window problems and dashboard displays failing and they seem pretty expensive to repair if out of warranty. Has Renault said anything about these being faults? I know there was something in the UK about the dashboard problems. Would be good to know where I stand. I had a problem previously with one window on my old Mégane, but my mechanic repaired free of charge.

How reliable are second-hand Saabs?

I have always loved Saabs. I am now considering buying a used 9-3 or 9-5, maybe a 2007 model or thereabouts. I have heard that some models more than others can be very expensive to maintain, as major things go wrong with them, like the Turbo, etc... Is this true? Is there one model more than another I should look for?
