Your Money Your Future: What are your rights when things go wrong?
Retirement can often be the trigger for a big purchase, whether it's a new kitchen or a brand-new car. But what happens if the car you buy develops a major fault or the kitchen turns out to be fitted by cowboys? What are your rights and when can you make a company refund your cash? Sarah spoke with Sylvia Rook, who's lead officer for fair trading at the Chartered Trading Standards Institute; Martyn James, who's from the complaints website Resolver; and Kate Jobson, who's a consumer law expert at Citizens Advice.

Are car rental firms sticking to the rules when it comes to hiring prices? Share Radio’s Jinan Rahma looks into this
The Competition and Markets Authority has recently brought in new rules for car rental firms to make their pricing clearer for customers. Hidden costs, such as insurance and young driver surcharges, are often not included and customers should be given a clear "drive away" price. So are companies sticking to the rules? Share Radio's Jinan Rahma has been finding out.

How far away are driverless cars from appearing on British roads?
This is Future Tech where we look at the latest innovations and gadgets, and discuss all things technology related. This week we talk driverless vehicles. Companies such as Uber and Google are never far from the headlines in the race to market the technology. Recently California approved the road testing of self-driving cars but according to the House of Lord's Science and Technology Committee, who this week published their report into autonomous vehicles, it’s still a long road before they appear on British roads. Share Radio’s Tom Hill brings this report.

Tech company v Car manufacturer: Who would you rather trust to make your driverless car?

Whichever way you think, car manufacturers are heading in this direction, and the most well-known tech giants want a piece of the action too. But who would you rather trust to make your driverless car? A tech company or your favourite car manufacturer? Auto Trader's Operations Director, Nathan Coe, joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to discuss the future of the industry. Nathan also offered comment on the big news of the day – the agreed deal between PSA Group and General Motors.

Ask Sarah: Car accident claims
Between 2001 and 2011, the number of whiplash claims for car accidents doubled, despite the number of accidents going down by 40%. This is allegedly costing us £40 a year extra in insurance costs which has caused the government to decided to clamp down on fake claims. Joining Sarah to talk about what this means to the public are, Amanda Stretton, from Confuesd.com and David Williams, technical director of AXA Insurance
