Whatever you want to know, the answer is a mere click away.Just don't ask him about cooking. He's rubbish at that.

I want to buy a used car, it is a ford mondeo, 2001 reg, costs £2,200, ands it looks nice on the body.

What else should I check for before handing over the money?

This is going to suffer from a lack of individual users unless autocar advertise the forums better in the magazine. When this site was relaunched it only got a one line mention in the editors page at the start. It's your own magazine, surely they could do a full page spread for free!

So where is the ask goodwin section of your website? there used to be a link on the front page.

I suspect that as there is no obvoius place ( and I have looked) where a viewer can look at the past questions, this might put people off posting their own questions

Interesting to note that in the current issue of Autocar, some bloke has written to Goodwin complaining about the magazines incessant bent with how well a road car goes round a track, while what he wants is a return to cars that soak up the bumps rather than crash over them with their large diameter wheels and low profile tyres with hard suspension.

Would you believe Goodwin agrees with him!!!!!! Maybe we should see road testers that do not have a racing background testing road cars and racing testers testing sports/racing cars?

Seems obvious to me!

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK
