Sir,

In the table in the December issue comparing the servicing requirements of a selection of modern cars, you list the Cars in an order of merit based upon the number of points requiring greasing. Except perhaps for the minority who perform their own servicing, a better basis for comparison would, I think, be the interval between servicing, rather than the number of grease points. The major objection to my mind to the excessive maintenance requirements of the average modern car is not so much the cost, which in any case is not likely to be affected very much by the number of greasing points, but the inconvenience resulting from the periodic loss of the car.

On this basis, the ILI and D.A.F. should be followed at the head of the table by the Victor, Silver Cloud, and Herald, .which in turn should be followed by the D.K.W. (not on your list). The latter has so points requiring greasing every 4,500 miles and, of course, does not need periodic oil changes. As a last point, the interval between greasings for the Volkswagen is now 3,000 miles, not 1,5oo as in your table.

Hayling Island. M. CATTON.
