Mechanical Issues

I also now have a couple of mechanical issues

Over certain road conditions like uneven bits of road, there is now a clonking underneath the steering wheel cowl. This only seems to happen with bumps on the near side of the vehicle.

2nd gear is notchy  and stiffish to get in to when you 1st start driving as well as sometimes hearing a small crunch. All other gears seem fine and with the engine off or at a stand still it slips in to 2nd fine. Once you have done 30 miles or so, this seems to improve especially if you change in to 2nd after around 3000 revs.

Will update on these when it goes in for it’s 1st service.


External Rust

I now have many little pin rust spots on the bonnet, doors, and rear quarter.

I have tried to photo these and put the in the gallery but they don’t always show well in the photo’s, ¬†sometimes show as black blobs.

I have reported this to the finance company but of this time they have not even bothered to come back to me.

I know some will say you have not been looking after the car etc. Let set the record straight. The car was polished as soon as I got it, it’s washed every one to two weeks and re polished every couple of months. Any bird poo is cleaned off as soon as it’s been seen.
