Not Happy Gta Headache

I love my 2004 147 gta, its doing my nut in at the mo tho. I recently had the rad replaced under warranty cos it had corroded, now it needs a new head gasket!!!!! Its got 18500m FARSH and has always been purchased/sold/serviced within the main dealer network, this aint normal is it? anyone else had this grief????

BWB.

PS;when it is working right its the ****.

Re: Gta Headache

I have previously owned a number of Italian motorbikes and the first rules i learnt were wiring/chrome and rubber were all classed as temporary fixtures,everything else that goes wrong is a QUIRK.When they're good there great,when there bad,well ,just look at a young italian woman.

If it overheated due to the rad being no good then it may well do, the V6 is a strong engine - being that its under warrenty just let them do it

But a rad that lasts only 2 years is appaling!!

Re: Gta Headache

Thanks for advice, rad was replaced bcos it had completely corroded at the bottom! PLUS!!!! i was going through ****loads of paraflu, and after much inspection it was realised that the coolant was leaking into the head gasket and evaporating!! hence the gasket is being replaced due to damage. Should i get a new GTA? or am i being gay about the whole issue???? mmmm, Nissan Micra perhaps?
