Problems or not?
I really do like my 3 week old 147 (5 door, 1.6 manual) but I have nagging niggles:
(a) I seem to be feeling every bump when driving round town. OK, it's not jolts
as such but I seem to be more conscious of the bumps than when in our 4 year old Punto.
Pot holes seem OK! It's more manhole covers, new bits of tarmac, undulations in the road surface etc.
Is the suspension stiff from new - does it 'relax' any? I don't remember the demo car being quite like this, but then maybe I was so in awe I didn't notice.
(b) I just noticed, when opening the tailgate, 'gaps' towards the base of the rear pillars. It seems as if the plastic rear bumper is supposed to marry up with the base of the metal pillars but doesn't quite.
I can push this plastic and it bends. The gap on the left is over half an inch.
Doesn't seem very good fit to me! Is this
standard? Need I worry? Should I get it refitted?
(c) I still can't get my rear seats to click back into place - will visit dealer for that
(d) The interior rattles have started already and I was hoping for a rattle-free car at last.
