Swapping my Volvo for a Nissan Pathfinder - is it a good deal?

Hi lads,

I need a seven-seat SUV and can get a Nissan Pathfinder with 73,000 miles from a dealer with warranty etc. They are giving me the best trade in price and I have to pay €2,500 with my own 2007 Volvo S80 D5 (with 172,000km on the clock). Is it a good deal and what do you think of the Pathfinder?

Am I stuck with my Mazda6 1.8?

Hi, I bought a Mazda6 1.8 petrol, which does not have a desirable emissions rating. This means that Park Motors, who sold the car to me, no longer wish to know me as regards possible trade-in etc. It's the same situation with many other garages! Am I stuck with it?

Is the BMW 520d as reliable as Honda's Accord?

Hello I want to change my car next year for a 2012 diesel and have narrowed the choice down to a BMW 520d or a Honda Accord 2.2-litre. I would love to go with the BMW but am a bit worried about owning it after the three-year warranty is over. I know the Honda is rock solid but I have had three Hondas in a row and would love a change. Could you give me some advice please?

Is the Eunos Roadster the same as the Mazda MX-5?

MX-5 vs Eunos Roadster? I'm looking to buy a Mazda MX-5, and I am tempted to buy a Eunos Roadster instead. I'm just wondering before I go any further are the parts for the Eunos Roadster the same as for the MX-5 being basically a Japanese import MX-5?
