The collision avoidance system and traction control keep switching off on my 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. When I switch off the engine and restart everything is ok again for approx 20km when they act up again. Any ideas?

Has Honda improved the Civic's seats?

Has Honda improved the driver's seat in the new civic saloon? Had a 2012 Civic that broke my back. Now have an Accord, but would love a new Civic Saloon if the seats are long enough to support my right leg.

Am I paying the correct tax on my Audi?

Hi,

I own a 2009 Audi A3 petrol and wondered if I'm paying too much road tax as many seem to think so including staff of car tax office, due to the year as the new regulations were brought in 2008. Was advised to go to NCT by staff at tax office, however NCT says it only deals with imported cars. How can I get the assessment on CO2 rechecked?

I'm having issues with my stop-start system...

My stop-start stops working for about a week or more, then starts working again each time the car stops. Why is this? Should I get it looked at?

How best to deal with car finance in negative?

I have a car that is worth €8,000 and the finance outstanding is €11,000 so if I buy a car with a trade in bonus it narrows the gap in clearing my loan. Toyota's deal comes to mind here. Apart from finding the difference myself is there any option open to me?

Thanking you.

Is Mercedes doing any deals for 191?

Is Mercedes doing any deals for 191 orders? BMW has the fiv eper cent price decrease as well as the option between a €2,500 deposit contribution or lower APR rate. Is Mercedes providing anything similar to remain competitive? I know it has in previous years done the nine per cent discount, but I cannot see anything on its website for 191. Even its prices have been very slow to be loaded onto the website, with the sales guys not knowing new prices either.
