    I had a cracked windscreen in my Hyundai Santa Fe less than a month after picking it up. We were away in our caravan at the time so the Autoglass chap had to come out to the caravan site. When you...

    I wonder if those councils requesting a V5 which we cannot supply for a Motability car, would accept the VE103A instead? It's a "Vehicle on Hire Certificate" and shows who is the vehicle's legal...
