Q. Have you heard of any air suspension problems on the Land-Rover Discovery 3? Mine went into rock and roll mode recently, leaving me with an extremely unstable vehicle.

A. We love the idea of a Discovery going into rock and roll mode, but it must be the Terrain Response System going into rock crawling mode. In most circumstances you can simply switch the engine off, restart and the chips usually return to normal. We did speak though to the experts at Land-Rover Owner International and technical guru Dave Phillips could not speak more highly of the new Discovery. It seems that you have been unlucky and Land-Rover will undoubtedly sort it out.

Q. Reading about the new Peugeot 1007 in your road test section with its sliding-doors, what would happen if a robber put his hand through? Would it stop the door from closing?
Terry Eaton via e-mail

A. According to Peugeot this is a safety feature designed to stop people injuring themselves. They do shut slower than conventional doors, but the robber/arm/door scenario can just as easily happen with a conventional door. The automatic doors certainly don't make the chances of a robbery any more likely.
