Picked p a 20month old 2.4 TI Q-tronic 159 at the weekend. traded in my blackline JTD. love it.
Covered 500 miles in it yesterday, ran like a dream, and returned 39mpg which was unexpected!
however, today, from cold, the idle is shocking. it has actually stalled twice. Drives fine though, is just idle, when cold. when in P or R, if i hold it on the brakes, it struggles to idle. My wife has just driven it 20 miles home, and said it was the same fromcold. I have just started it, from warm, and it's fine.
Have spoke to Dax at Benfield, he is going to get the techies to call me in the morning. He will, as he is a great fella, and a mate. However, has anyone any similar experiences?
the car is 20 months old, but has covered 39k. Looking at its history, it was owned by CIS northern, so was a company motorway cruncher. But it has been pretty much sat for 2 months.
Hope its something simple, or a trip to Mango's is in order. As the 150 mile drive up to Newcastle is a little far to go for a warranty claim!
'07 GT Blackline JTD, but a 159TI 2.4 on its way very shortly!
