new gtv 2.0l (97) owner - typical problems??
OK, had the car (a 97 2.0l tspark) for 3 weeks (has done 35k miles). Problems so far:
Electric Aerial broken (doesn't extend at all)
Door mirror loose (though this has been badly repaired in the past, and a new one is on order)
Driver air bag warning light staying on.
Noisy startup from cold (told its a cam variator problem - caused by not using selenia oil at every oil change / top up - sound right)?
Alarm / locking system gone screwy (totally ****ed) this happened yesterday - when i go to lock the car, it just unlocks and doesn't set the alarm - just like if you leave a door slightly open, and it decides to randomly set the alarm off when putting the ignition key in.
Despite this, i'm chuffed (happy) with the car, and luckily my dealer gave a comprehensive 12mnth warranty, and everything above should be covered and fixed for free!
I was just wondering how many of the above are known typical problems? Anything else likely to come surprise me soon? Anything i should have checked, and if needed, fixed for free during my 12month warranty period?
Kris (eargerly awaiting my car being returned in a slightly more 'fixed' state)
