What made me laugh though was the guy asking about gear changing in his Volvo, I can just see him now driving down the road with the owners manual in his one hand, him working out when to change gear!! Gear changing should be intuitive FFS!!
The other funny is the guy writing in, he cannot understand how ALL these Minis can be faulty, soon as he gets them home there is car alarm problems, Uh, thicko ever thought it might be a radio signal near your home?
Interesting article about fuel consumption figures and how the manufactures can submit a 'doctored' car.
