Fuel stations I have filled up at in the past three weeks have said advised they can provide condensation reports via the fuel company involved. I also have a sample of the water taken from the filter, could you recommend any independent organisation that would be able to run tests on the sample I have? Kristen Taylor, e-mail. A: I dont think you can re late the recent problems to those you had two years or more ago. I dont believe it is a problem with the vehicle, or necessarily the dealer, more likely the fuel you used. Take the fuel report and the sample to an independent testing laboratory. You can find a number of agencies if you use Google. Q: At the recent 40,000 km service on our 2010 Honda Accord Euro I was told all four tyres were dangerous and needed immediate replacement. All were badly worn and chewed out on the inside and not easy to see. The dealers only response was to ask if the vehicle had been driven on dirt roads, which it hasnt, no explanation of the likely cause was offered. On taking the vehicle to Goodyear they also asked exactly the same thing regarding dirt roads and were unable to give an explanation either. We believe it is a more widespread problem with this car and we told Honda so when they called to follow up on the service satisfaction, but weve heard nothing back from them. Kevin Baston, Buderim, Qld. A: The Accord Euros sus pension is set fairly aggressively and sportier tyres are fitted. Both of those can result in higher tyre wear, and sometimes, uneven wear. Its a good idea to keep on top of the tyre rotation; so all four tyres wear at the same rate, ensure the tyre pressures are set to the correct pressure, and have the suspension aligned.
