Vauxhall has joined the trend towards more generous car warranties in the UK market with a new form of cover, the Vauxhall Lifetime Warranty, that has no time limit but is restricted to 100,000 miles. Until Vauxhall introduced the Lifetime Warranty, the most generous cover was provided by the Korean manufacturers Kia (seven years) and Hyundai (five years), as well as Vauxhall's GM stablemate Chevrolet which introduced a strong combined warranty and servicing package a few weeks ago.

Camay Winfield is after a small estate or something equally spacious because she spends a lot of time out in the wild, camping with her grandchildren. She has a 2007 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 SXi. Assuming she gets up to £6,000 for the Corsa, her budget is £7,000. The one complication is that she can't have a car any wider than the Corsa because her driveway is so narrow, with clearance in places of just six inches either side of the mirrors.

Here's a cast-iron prediction for one of today's results: in the Turkish Super League, Ankaraspor will lose 3-0 at home to Kasimpasa. In fact they will continue to lose every game for the rest of the season by the same margin and finish bottom of the table with no points and a goal difference of 0-102 from 34 matches. The authorities have decided on this drastic punishment because of the club's "anti-competitive links" with local rivals Ankaragucu. The supposed capital city rivalry became compromised when an Ankaraspor executive suddenly took over as the chairman of Ankaragucu while his father, the local mayor, remained as chairman of Ankaraspor. A couple of unexpected transfer deals between the two then followed. Ankaragucu could yet go down as well, as despite the appointment of France's Roger Lemerre, the winning coach of Euro 2000, they are only a couple of points above the remaining two relegation places. Of course, it could never happen here. Imagine, say, Robert Maxwell moving from Oxford United to Derby County, and leaving his son Kevin in charge of Oxford, who then sell their best player, Dean Saunders, to Derby. Impossible? Ask Mark Lawrenson, who was sacked as Oxford manager for protesting about the deal.
