My GT has suddenly become very crashy on uneven roads and is making a loud knocking sound from what I think is the front drivers side wheel when I go over bumps etc. Gutted but it's got a warranty so taking it to Alfatecnico when I get back from Naples next week. Does it sound like a bush or something along those lines?
Aren't bushes supposed to last a bit longer than 23k miles?
Doesn't sound like much to me.
ANyway, I hope thats the last of the snags on your new GT & the rest is plain sailing.
I've just been extolling the virtues of the GT's reliability on another forum. Hope my faith isn't mis-placed!
I'd have hoped so Matt...perhaps it's because the previous two owners lived in London so the car was generally going over bumpy city roads hence the low mileage. My mechanic checked over it whilst there and says I've got a really good car (bush aside) considering how much I paid for it. Fingers crossed I'll have a trouble free time from now on
how was Naples. I'm off to sorrento next month to get married.
...we loved Sorrento. It's funny because I said to my wife it would have been nice to have got married there. Naples itself was a bit run down to be honest. Cracking food though...probably one of the best meals I have ever had in my life was consumed whilst there. We found a place where you had to knock on the door to get in, with no menu and then you just told them if you wanted meat or fish. It was amazing food!!!
Just had drop links and bushes on rear trailing arms replaced on my 2004 GT at 104k miles.
Mine had got very crashy over local b roads. It felt like it was falling apart. That said I believe it's acknowledged the GT doesn't have the most refined ride going...
I also heard a knocking rattle from up front more towards the passenger side.
Anyway now I have it back it's a revelation. Feels solid like my wife's BMW, and the handling has improved more than I would have expected.
Lower front wishbones were done around 90k miles which has helped.
Also got an uprated clutch and new dual mass fly-wheel. Mine has always been (until I moved closer to work) a motorway car, so this might explain why everything has lasted this long.

that third pic was the cloisters right? That's where were getting married.
That's right. My friend on the right said it's the most beautiful and paeceful place she has ever seen...and she's travelled loads!!! What a venue for a wedding. Are you or your wife to be Italian/have Italian family?
