I've had the GT (jtd) for over a month now so the honeymoon period is over and its flaws are starting to show. Not that that's a slur on the GT, I've become mega fussey about stuff on cars over the last few years so whatever car I bought I'd have a list of issues by now.
The one that's annoying me the most is the creaking dashboard. The creaks don't come from any one spot in particular, but rather any point along the front edge where it's mounted to the bulkhead. It creaks whenever I go over any bumps or when I accelerate.
Do any other JTD owners have the same?
Just for info, the other issues on my list are the skipping CD mulitchanger (really f***ing annoying!!!), a poor rear hatch glass seal that's detached from part of the glass at the top, a heating system that takes a long time to warm up (don't these diesels have fuel burning heaters??), a buzz from behind the instrument cluster when engine is at 2.5k rpm and the electric windows sometimes playing up.
Ooh, that reminds me. The electric window faults that some of us seem to have (one-touch stops working for a while, window only winds up an inch at a time) I think I've stumbled upon a reset procedure that cures it. A mate works in the body&trim dept for Jag and told me about something similar on XK8 and the reset procedure to cure it. When the cold snap hit on Tuesday my windows started playing up. After about 10 mins the pass windows was still not working properly. So, I wound it all the way down and kept the button press for a few seconds after it was fully wound down. I then pressed the button many times repeatedly for a couple of seconds. Hey presto, one-touch wind up and down returned
Anyhoo, who else has a creaky dash? Do they all do it or should I goto the dealership?
