At what point does it start to become unacceptable?
Just canvassing for general opinion - I still love my car and dont want to take it back or anything like that, but on a 33,000 pound car when do you think enough is enough?
List of problems so far.
Glow plug failure - replaced at dealer (needed two visits)
Hood problem (wouldnt latch at the back) - needed 3 visits to fix.
Alarm problems - new door sensors needed.
Rumbling power steering - needed 2 visits so far, booked in for 3rd time to get steering pump replaced.
2nd Hood problem - frame twisted and wouldnt seal properly on the windows - canvas had to come off to fix.
Clutch pedal went to the floor after standing for 4 days - now doesnt return to normal position on approx 50% of gear changes - needs to be booked in, I suspect slave cylinder.
Eats tires - im about to put 3rd (yes 3rd!) set of fronts on and I have only dont 13k miles
Fuel consumption - DPF seems to regenerate very frequently despite the car doing a lot of Mway miles. Av. consumption over last 1500miles @ 24mpg.
Started car this morning to be greeted with plug failure message again. Joy of joys.
Car is 9 months old withh 13k on the clock - on average I guesstimate it has been to be dealers once every 3 weeks for work. Getting to be a pain in the bottom.
Whats your opinion on this.
