I have serious electrical problems with my Fiat Stilo!

My Fiat Stilo keeps displaying warnings that I have bulb failures when I don't. All fittings etc. checked by an electrical engineer. Also when I only put on front wiper rear comes on and sometimes when I put my electric window up it goes down! Help

What fun car will I replace my Honda Civic with?

I have an 08 2.2 Honda Civic and want to change soon. Budget is €17/18k including trade-in value. Any ideas on what to get? Have seen 2010 Citroen DS3 with extras (nav, leather, etc.) for €17k. Like that it's not the norm e.g. Focus or Golf. Would it be a good buy?

Is a diesel Nissan Qashqai a good replacement for our Golf?

Hi we are looking at a Nissan Qashqai 1.5 Visia dCi diesel. I have never had a diesel car and have had very trustworthy Golfs to date. We are not car people but want a change that is not going to break the bank. My main concern is the diesel issue as we are Dublin based.

What's the Toyota GT86 like on Irish roads?

Hello, will you be doing a review soon of the Toyota GT86 now that it is in Ireland? I'm aware that there is a review on the website already but that was done in Europe on smooth roads so I thought a review on bumpy Irish roads would be appropriate now.

Regards, Brian.
