  1. 1500 mile trip x 2 in a kangoo, is this a bad idea?

    General Chat
    A few months back I bought my Kangoo, its a 1,9 Diesel from 2002, it's got (relatively?) low miles at 75k and everything seems to be running pretty smoothly on it. I was wondering wether people have any info as to what these are like on long distance drives? I am going to a festival in Croatia...

    Cars & motoring
    Hello, I am just about to buy a 2001 Clio with 108000 miles on the clock. I am looking at taking it to the bottom of England, which is a 500 Mile trip for me, do you think it would make it there and back? I know you can only guess but you lot will know better than me! The car seems to be in...

  13. ST's 1000 mile report on his new C4 Picasso

    My mottah!
    We have had the C4P for just over 3 weeks now and have also just gone through the 1000 mile barrier. Still can't believe how quiet the engine/car is - it is quite easy to do 80mph when not in cruise control (that's the beauty of cruise control - no danger of speeding) and not realise because...
  14. 36,000 mile service

    Cars & motoring
    My 36k service is due, plus the car's 4 years old, which probably means I need Brake and Coolant fluid changes as well. Although I can do most of the things on the sevice, I'd decided a while back to take it to a reputable garage (maybe Riverside in Stockport, as I've seen they're recommended...

    I've always lusted after a vel satis, and having done an idle trawl on autotrader, found a 3.5 auto in sheffield. 11,000 on the clock, £6400, according to the dealer's website. Is this standard? If so, I can see me trying to talk hubby into it.

  18. Whoops 20,000 mile

    Cars & motoring
    Whoops a quote from Here Servicing Surely such high technology, performance and great fuel economy must mean more servicing? No. Vauxhall's new common rail diesel engines require the same 20,000-miles/one year service intervals as the petrol engines. I wonder if they anticipate any turbo...
  19. 35,000 mile service

    Cars & motoring
    I have an 02 Megane 1.4 petrol which is due for its 35,000 mile service. Is it worth going to a main dealer or is it just overpriced. Are they any benefits going to a main dealer or just a privately owned place. How much does it cost. Regards
