Well done in getting a replacement. How did you manage that? When I first had problems with mine, I was told, "you appear to be the only one that we know of with problems" I think not! Your comments would be much appreciate
Sorry, I don't the magic words! However, this is what I advise. Be persistent and always polite. Talk to the dealer first, but if you are unhappy, involve ARUK. Even when you can't hide your incandescent rage (due to frustrations) always make a point of saying to whoever you are dealing with that it's not personal, just emphasise how unhappy you are - especially as your expectations had been so high.
That said, I really don't know why they have been so nice to me. All I can say is that I am so glad and very VERY happy.
I just did a search of these forums (fora?) to find out what your problems(s) are. As others have already commented, you should have posted it in this forum (instead of the welcome forum), then I and others would have seen it.
Anyway, it would seem that you have a short circuit somewhere in your system, and as far as I can see, this is
an unusual fault - I haven't read of a similar fault on a new Brera, anyway. The diagnostics should
help to pin-point this easily, but occasionally do not.
Assuming that you are still suffering, I recommend a call to ARUK's customer service for advice. They'll advise you to take it to your nearest service department (I imagine), but if they are unable to diagnose and fix it, then you can ask ARUK to send one of their technicians to take a look. Frustrating as it is (and unacceptable), I would think that you can have it fixed without too much more aggro if you do this.
Please let us know how you get on (perhaps you could start a dedicated thread in this forum to post details for others to follow?).
Please note, the faults with my first Brera were pretty severe, numerous and persistent.
Good luck with getting yours fixed and I wish you many MANY happy miles of Brera motoring!!!
