The annual reliability survey into used cars 3-8 years old, conducted by What Car? and Warranty Direct, has been completed and the results published. The results follow what has become a well-established trend, with Japanese manufacturers well ahead of the rest. Indeed, Honda tops the poll for the eighth year on the bounce, with Suzuki close in pursuit and Chevrolet and Ford the only manufacturers from outside the Far East to make the top ten.
At the other end of the scale, Bentley, Land Rover and Porsche fare particularly badly – …

Volvo has released a YouTube video which is attracting an enormous amount of attention at present. The reason for the attention? The video shows a driverless car reversing perfectly between two parked cars in a car park. It goes on to show the same driverless car moving around a car park seeking a space, pausing to allow pedestrians to cross, and even being able to sense that a space is being vacated before reversing in.
This Autonomous Parking technology is obviously creating an enormous buzz – in echoes of James Bond, …

Skoda has released a new facelifted model of the Octavia. Whilst the initial impression could perhaps be that little has changed, this is unsurprising given that the Octavia is the most popular of Skoda’s range in the UK – there are also a broad range of improvements that are not immediately obvious, such as improved fuel economy and storage.
Both the estate and the hatchback offer an impressive amount of space – the hatchback’s 590-litre boot capacity exceeds that of many of its rivals, and the estate not only offers 1740 …

For as long as this correspondent can remember, it has been a cause of enormous frustration to motorists to pull in to a motorway service station for petrol, only to discover that the prices are exorbitant by comparison with local prices. The dilemma is obvious – pay a horrendous price that sticks in the craw, or drive to the next service station, where the prices are unlikely to be significantly better. However, legislation could be in the pipeline to ensure that motorists are in a position to make an informed …

At the Shanghai Motor Show recently, Ford announced that they are reviving the Escort! Fans of the classic brand should not get excited just yet though, as this is to be solely available in China initially, where it will be a cheaper, slightly larger model in the same class as the Focus. The badge carries a lot of weight in China, where European cars of the 1980s and 1990s are very highly regarded – the popularity of the car in the UK then is something that the Chinese public has …

The cost of fuel is perhaps the most prohibitive factor in running a car at present – it has this week been reported that the average household is spending 9% more on petrol this year than last. Prices have soared this year, hitting record highs and prompting an ongoing investigation from the Office of Fair Trading. When you consider the scale of the increase – the price of petrol has risen 38% since June 2007, whilst diesel has gone up by 43% – the investigation is certainly welcome.
A large …

The new facelifted Fiesta has been released. How does Ford generate and sustain the popularity of the UK’s bestselling car? By remodelling the front with an Aston Martin style grille, that’s how – expect to see similar across the remainder of the range in the near future. The engine choices remain similar, although the 1.6 petrol has been discarded and replaced with a very efficient 1.0 litre alternative.
 
For parents begrudgingly loaning their newly-qualified offspring their new Fiesta, the new MyKey facility is definitely of comfort. This means that a key …

It used to be a quiet suburban tradition in many parts of the UK that Sunday mornings are when the man of the house washes the car – and in some areas this is still true. However, a recent survey by a well known motoring organisation has revealed an interesting and little known fact that the better off you are, the more likely you are to leave your car dirty.
This once a week washing is a habit for only around 6% of those asked who were from a professional or …

1. Built-in GPS – although some new cars have these as standard many of us are still driving much older cars
2. Heated Seats – for those of us in the UK, winter can be a …

Causing excitement this week in the motoring industry is the release of the first images of the new Range Rover – the first facelift for this iconic vehicle since 2002. The silhouette retains its distinctive look, with perhaps a nod to their own Evoque model.
 
The full unveiling will take place at the Paris Motor Show in September, when more details we be revealed; however, Land Rover have already released some impressive figures. The new model will weigh 420kg less than its predecessor, thanks in no small part to its all-aluminium …

For many motorists in this country there are places we like to drive and places we try to avoid, and some motorists are feeling harassed by high fuel prices, parking charges and speed cameras.
However, according to a recent survey commissioned by an online motor insurance firm there are still plenty of car friendly places to go in the UK.
The survey asked participants to rate some of the largest urban areas in the country on things like fuel prices, parking costs, speed cameras and vehicle crime. In general, for better fuel …
