Is my Car Too Old? When is a Car Past its Use-by Date?

Hi John, 

My lovely commodore is a 2002 and the last time we got it serviced our mechanic said it was ageing and not to take on long trips. I would have thought it would have lasted longer than that. What do you think. (It was my husband Chrys who rang you last night about a new key.) 

Sooo nice to hear you on air, filling in for Clive Robertson on Sydney Radio 2UE the last 2 nights. You are always so bright and fresh, don't worry about the knockers.

Best regards,

Marjorie

Has the Car Dealer Ripped Me Off On Repairs?

Hi John,

Anne contacted you on Radio 2UE some weeks back about her 2002 Astra with 108,836km on the clock with a piece off #2 piston and the workshop had had the car for 2 months. After 3 months they replaced the motor at considerable cost to Anne and returned the car without washing it and with greasy handprints all over the cover on the motor. Then 4 days later it broke down with the same symptoms as the original and this time they changed the catylactic converter and have said it's now 100%. I'd like to give you an update and hear another opinion of the situation.

Regards Pete
