18000 mile service and "snag" rectification.

My 11 month old 159 SW is booked into Mangoletsi for its 18000 mile service on Thursday.

I am led to believe it won't take long as they said I could wait while they do it but unfortunately the "snag" list might take them longer to resolve so I am having a courtesy car for the day!

1. The occasional power stutter is still present even though its been looked at once and the EGR valve has been changed.

2. Squeaky passenger seat when unoccupied.

3. Noisy power steering esp. when cold.

4. Offside rear door sticks when opening even though the door gets used.

5. Drivers visor catch needs replacing. It was identified as being faulty when the power stutter was being investigated in the summer but I never had a call to tell me the part was in!

6. The bottom edge of the metal trim under the passenger airbag is unduly sharp....so sharp in fact that my little girl cut her finger on it.

I think thats it.

Apart from these its bloody brilliant

J'aime la belle voiture!
