Recently I began a 1000km journey in good spirits. 200km's from my departure my car got stuck in 5 th gear. I stopped on the side of the road and began making calls to tow trucks etc. An hour later the car's gear's started to work normally. A further 100km's and the same thing. The car stopped working three times throughout my journey. When I got it to my destination it finally gave the ghost.
The whole dash began lighting up and switching off, reporting failures of every system that it has!
Eventually I got it into the dealers where they hooked it up to a diagnosis machine and promptly told me that there was nothing wrong. I took the car but couldn't even get out of the car park!
To cut a long story short, they had the car for a MONTH, yes, a MONTH! They replaced the computer box but to no avail. Eventually they fixed the rpoblem and told me that it was merely a loose connection between the computer and the selespeed pump. Bull**** because they checked the wiring the first day they had the car.
Well I have my baby back and she is working as beautifully as she always has. I got a new computer box for free and for apparently no reason!
My father's mate drove a selspeed for a year and then switched to a manual and he said that if he could give me any advice i should do the same.
I'm CONFUSED! What are the thoughts of those in the know? (meaning you guys!)
