Found this on aroc.co.uk,
(It's a typical failure of the so-called "variator" that regulates the
camshaft timing over the full rpm-range. If damaged it means loss of
" top" power, even less power under 3000rpm and higher fuel consumption.
No matter how old your car is, it is always a "hidden fault". Under
the consumer protection laws valid in Europe it will remain guarantee
for many years)
If it is a common fault due to a faulty part and if has never been replaced, should it not be replaced by AR. Anybody any knowledge on this under consumer protection law.
