TALK is cheap - and so is the Dacia Duster. You can have a new one on your driveway, the odometer reading 0000 miles, bobbles on the tyres and that indefinable ‘new car’ smell still permeating the cabin, for less than £10,000.

MY WIFE sometimes accuses me of wrapping my cars in cotton wool (by which she means I don't leave the remains of a half-eaten sandwich in the passenger door bin) - but I have never wrapped a car in bubble wrap.

SUBARU has an image problem in this country. How ironic that the car that made Subaru a major player in the past decade - the Impreza STI - should be so spectacularly responsible for an inexplicable failure to rebrand as a purveyor of fine 4x4s and easy-to-own SUVs.

AS ONE of the world’s biggest car manufacturers, it’s understandable that Ford has made some mistakes. It lost a bundle on the Edsel, suffered a public relations disaster by ignoring Pinto design flaws and, in perhaps the biggest gaffe of the lot, sold Land Rover in 2008 after spending a fortune on new models.

QOROS sounds like a particularly poncey type of men's aftershave - the sort of "fragrance" for blokes who don't have to try... too hard. Fear not Lynx-users, you won't have to switch brands, because Qoros is a car company.

AS the market-leading crossover the Qashqai already has excellent residual values.

THE Nismo 370Z is a highly desirable car - but would you sell a body part to own one? The same week I was hooning about in Nissan’s hotted up coupe a man in America announced he had sold one of his testicles so he could buy a 370Z.

A couple of months ago, sales of Renault-Nissan electric vehicles (EV) since 2010 passed the 100,000 mark. That’s a pretty remarkable figure give that sales of previous EVs could usually be counted in the hundreds at best and on the fingers of one hand at worst. So why weren’t the sales teams patting themselves on the back?
