My car keeps going into limp home mode
It appears to be an intermittent problem, and one that is very difficult to diagnose from a distance. If it went into limp-home mode then it is likely to be an electronic issue, and there could be any number of causes. Your best course of action is to persist with the dealer and trust that they will ultimately isolate the cause.

Best budget 7 seaters?
The used Captiva does appear to be great value, but their shaky reputation for reliability would lead me to consider other options. The Territory would be a better bet, but they are known to have electrical and front suspension issues in the long-term. If you're after an SUV, a seven-seat 2006-12 Mitsubishi Outlander is smart buying at the moment, but if you're just after the seven seats, I highly recommend taking a look at a 2008-13 Kia Rondo. These represent excellent value at the moment. Hope that helps, and keep us posted with your progress.

Mitsubishi Outlander 2011: Rust specks on new car?
It is always disappointing when the new car you buy comes with flaws, like yours has done. It's always wise to closely inspect a new car before accepting it, and identifying problems before you've handed over your money, and having the issues resolved there and then. Not having done that you're in the situation of negotiating with the dealer from a weak position, in other words he's got your money. Ask the dealer for a meeting to discuss the issue directly with him and work out a plan of action that he will undertake to resolve the problem to your satisfaction, and do not accept your car back until you are satisfied. You could also seek the advice of a paint specialist, like Graeme Cuthbert (0422 444 335), who could inspect the car for you before and after the rectification work.
