Estate tow car

I’ve towed four caravans over 40 years, including a 1800kg twin axle Carlight and the best tow car was a d5 V70 m annual. Sometimes wish I still had it but i’m getting to like the outlander automatic.

Re: long standing high emission problem with a scimitar sabr

After a bit of a fight getting the old lambda sensor out, off to the emission testers with a new one fitted... outcome?... no improvement whatsoever! Now to renew the temperature sensor and try again.
