You may know already that Cartell appears weekly on the Motormouth show on Newstalk 106 when our own Jeff Aherne gets the chance to talk about the thing he most loves to talk about – cars! This weeks topics included driving in wet weather and new driver training rules to improve road safety – and […]
In Ireland the local authority is responsible for creating bye-laws that list places in your town/city where parking fees will be imposed. It also decides the value of parking fees. Before making bye-laws that restrict parking, your local authority must consult with the Garda Commissioner and give public notice of its intention to make […]
Last Monday on Motormouth we discussed the controversial topic of what defines a man’s car versus a woman’s car. Needless to say it stirred emotion. However just to ensure that my opinion is fully understood, here are a few cars that are driven by more men than women. Subaru Impreza CS400 STI Cosworth and Ford […]
I am delighted to announce Cartell is the proud sponsor of Motormouth on Newstalk once again.
I’m glad to say however that I’m impressed by what Peugeot have to offer at the moment.
For a long time now this car has been the taxi drivers favourite and it’s no surprise as to why. This car is a work horse that allows more miles than the average car. It’s spacious, comfortable and feels safe.
Citroen C3 1.4 HDi Firstly, in comparison to the last C3 it’s a small bit longer, and just a little bit wider. What does that mean? Well, a little bit more leg room and a little more space and maybe even tighter handling. The C3 also has what’s called the visiodrive. What’s that? I hear […]
Damien gave us the low down on the Topaz Donegal Rally. It brought back fond memories of the Cartell.ie Rally of The Lakes.
Honda Insight In theory the Honda Insight is a very good car which has tapped into essential technology. Their IMA technology (Integrated Motor Assist), which was first introduced with the Honda Civic Hybrid, is very forward thinking. What this is is an electric motor which which gives added power to the car when needed, thus […]
Opel Insignia “Opel has finally stood up and is starting to be counted” This week I had the pleasure of test driving the 2009 European Car of the Year, the Opel Insignia. Of course being a family man I opted for the Elite 1.6i Turbo Sports Tourer version, a beast in sheep’s clothing. When I […]
Mazda6 MZR-CD 2.2-litre Turbo Diesel For years Mazda was a member of our family. It was there when I got home from school, when I grazed my leg and when I used to come home after a few beers. Our homestead saw many generations of Mazda come and go. My dad’s first Mazda was a […]
Alfa Romeo Mito I’ve always been a fan of Top Gear, and as a fan of Top Gear I’ve always wanted to own an Alfa Romeo……I mean I know they haven’t exactly got a name as being the most reliable car in the world, I know they don’t deliver excellence in the handling department, but […]
The 2.2 is available in 3 different versions – a powerful one, a really powerful one, and an even more powerful one! I had the really powerful one…
If you have bought a vehicle with outstanding finance, the likelihood is that you will be notified by the bank or institution with the financial interest, that they are seeking the return of the vehicle or remuneration of the amount owed. Once the collections department of the finance house has confiscated the vehicle, it becomes much more difficult for you to regain control.
The C3 also has what’s called the visiodrive. What’s that? I hear you ask, well what it is is a panoramic view, and to a point I actually like it. It’s essentially a whole load of glass, which goes from the bottom of the front window to about half way up the roof. It really is a nice sight, which makes the C3 feel all the roomier.
