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?

Can you help with the roof on my Peugeot 306 CC?

Hi, I have a '98 Peugeot 306 CC with a folding electric roof. I'm having a problem when closing the roof. It opens perfectly but when it's closing the back window won't open to let the boot part down: i.e. it isn't completing the closing sequence. Could this be an electrical problem? Can you help?

My Honda's head gasket has gone twice in nine months!

I got the head gasket done on my 02 Honda Civic 1.4 last September (2010) due to burst radiator. Now it's gone again after nine months. Would this indicate it was not fixed properly or just bad luck?

Regards, Tom

I have a 2004 1.6-litre Skoda Octavia. At idle the car chugs as if it is about to cut out and sometimes acceleration fluctuates. What do you think it is?

Thank you
