Horizon Grasstrack Series Sunday, 6th September 2009 Clifton Vale firstname.lastname@example.org with GRAHAM SMITH QI HAVE a two-year-old Holden that is due for its 60,000km service. It has had all its services from the Holden dealership where we bought it. However, it is quite a drive, and each service is getting ridiculously expensive. They tell you that it has to be serviced at a Holden dealership to keep the three-year warranty. Is this correct? We do have a good independent mechanic nearby who used to work at Holden. He also costs about half the price for the same job that the dealership would do. Can I take my car to him without losing my warranty? Janelle Smedley email AYes you can. The Trade Practices Act prevents man- ufacturers from forcing owners to have their cars serviced by a factory dealer. QI HAVE an opportunity to buy a 1998 Mazda Metro 121 Shades 1.3-litre five-door hatch, with only 18,000km on the clock. I know it is genuine because it was my late mother-in-law’s car. The rego ran out in July, and there is somepaneldamageonarear door and front bumper. Otherwise it is in excellent condition, and has been regularly serviced. I can buy it for $5900.Doyouthink it’s value for money? Peter C email AThe price is average for that model and year, but you will have to pay for the registration on top of the purchase price, and maybe pay for anything needed to get it road-worthied. Add to that the body damage and it’s starting to look less like a bargain. The low mileage makes it attractive, but find outhowmuch you will have to spend on it to get Co-Op Used A 2008 Hyundai Getz SX 1.6-litre three-door is CoOp’s deal of the day. It has had one owner, travelled 21,000km and is a five-speed manual. Features include ABS brakes, Bluetooth audio head unit, and all SX options. One only at $10,990. Wayne’s Car Sales WAYNE’S deal of the week is a 2007 Toyota Hilux 4x4 flat tray. It features a 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine, five-speed gearbox, power steering, towbar and steel tray. Priced to sell this weekend at $29,990. Motors MOTORS has a barely used 2009 Nissan Patrol seven seat ST-L available today.

If it’s more than $1000 I’d think twice about it. QI RECENTLY bought a 75th edition Falcon AU2 Ghia in mint condition. It has a VCTIntech engine and four-speed auto. Can you tell me what it would do for 0-100km/h rush and the quarter-mile? AA little over eight seconds QMY Mitsubishi Lancer ES that I bought new in 2005 is Ray Hale email for the 0-100km/h dash, and the high-15s for the quartermile. QMY 2003 Mitsubishi Pajero releases a smell worse than that of rotten eggs. I have tried filling the car with different types noisy on start-up. I told my mechanic about it and he then used a synthetic oil, which seems to do the job, but could you tellme if the noise is normal for the Lancer? Peter Mott NSW of petrol and the problem persists. Please help me solve this problem. Fida Gourani email AThe rotten egg smell is usually a sign of a problem with the catalytic converter. Take it to a mechanic and have it checked. Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, August 29, 2009 Do yourself a service OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS: A reader wonders whether he should buy a 1998 Mazda Metro 121. My 2003 Mitsubishi Pajero releases a smell worse than that of rotten eggs ‘ AGenerally there shouldn’t be any rattling noiseswhenyou ’ start the car, whether it’s a Lancer or any other brand. A noise like you describe could be a valve lifter that is taking an unusual amount of time to pump up. It could be a case of sludge in the engine affecting the supply of oil to the lifters, the incorrect oil used at service, or, in the worst case, a lack of proper servicing. QMY 1996 VS Commodore sometimes won’t start when cold. The RACV mechanic and my local Holden dealer couldn’t find the fault. Can you help? David Richards The Basin, Vic AAn intermittent fault can be very hard to trace, but those early Commodores often have trouble with a crank sensor, so that may be worth checking. 06 Crewman S VZ – 6 speed manual ............... $25,990 05 Courier 4x4 – Turbo Dual Cab .................... $18,990 05 X-Trail Wagon – Auto ................................ $17,990 04 KIA Carnival – 7 seater .............................. $13,990 04 Holden Cruze – Auto, 49,000 klms .............. $12,990 03 Falcon BA Wagon – 7 seater ...................... $10,990 00 Falcon XR6 Ute – Manual.
