Hyundai i40 Tourer or Peugeot 5008?

I am looking to change my car and need something with more space. I have looked at and test driven the Hyundai i40 Tourer and the Peugeot 5008. The 5008 has more space, but I am drawn to the i40 as it drives and appears better. Can you enlighten me as to which you feel is the better car?

Can I fit smaller wheels to my Ford?

I have 15-inch wheels on my car and need to replace one rim. I went to a scrap yard but they didn't have any 15-inch wheels for my model of car (2003 Ford Fusion). They had a full set of 14-inch rims with new tyres (thinking of replacing all four because I also need two tyres), but I'm wondering can I put 14-inch rims on to a car that has 15-inch wheels.

My Skoda Octavia's engine is cutting out. Why?

My Skoda Octavia is losing power after each gear change. When putting my foot on the accelerator revs go down to below 500rpm and the engine cuts out, and then restarts, but doesn't feel right. What could be wrong?

How do I turn off stop-start on my new Volkswagen Golf?

Is it possible to disconnect the stop-start function on my 2012 Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion? I keep forgetting to switch it off until it cuts out the first time I stop. Surely it must eventually wear out the starter? It drives me crazy - makes me look like I'm letting the car cut out all the time. If all vehicles had it the streets would be polluted with the noise of dozens of car engines stopping and starting. I'm not convinced that this particular innovation will be popular. What do you think?
