A collection of brand new stories are arriving on Warranty Direct's blog site this weekend!
Family cars only have to be spacious and reliable. Does the Mazda or Skoda offer anymore than that? Why Buy? The Mazda 6 is a good looking car, plus it has loads of room inside and for the enthusiast driver it is huge fun too. The Skoda Superb is rather more laid back majoring on masses of space ...

Calling all Scalextric fans, the ultimate course could be yours for at auction taking place at the end of the month. 
Let’s face it. In the hypercompetitive world that is Formula 1 racing, even the most skilled drivers stand a snowball’s chance in hell of getting a seat. In that rarefied air, it takes not only talent, but connections, timing, and money—lots and lots of money. Standing on the podium in Monaco? Ha. We’d be happy […]

The definitive source of "real world" car ownership costs.
Introduction
How reliable is your car or the car you're about to buy?

And how do you determine what is or isn't a reliable car anyway? When you're considering the purchase of a car, there are only a handful of factors that really matter - reliability is one of them. Having a car that won't let you down is important to almost every motorist, and two things affect your view of reliability.

How often it needs repairing, and how much it will cost you to put right. A car could break down five times, but only cost you £50 each time to fix, or it could break down once and set you back £1,000. That's why the Reliability Index figure combines several elements - cost, inconvenience and rate of failure - making it a 'real world' picture of car ownership.
