The external temperature gauge recorded 21 degrees C in the middle of winter when the actual was -8 degrees C.
Replacement fitted by dealer.
Rattling coming intermittently from rear. Sounds like parcel shelf, but Dealer unable to identify.
Squeak and rattles seem to be coming from under dashboard. Taken back to dealer under warranty for 1 day, then another full day, then 5 days (which I think was an attempt to cause me to give up) then a further 3 days after writing a letter of complaint to the Managing Director. Problem still not solved, but I do appreciate that the causes of these noises are often difficult to locate. Parts of the panelling and insulation were not fitted back.
The dealer did subcontract the fitting of a tow bar and I wondered if that mechanic had reassembled wiring and panels correctly.
The programmed stations on my radio had been changed when I got it back. Do garages not provide "music while you work" for their fitters from their own sources?
I do miss not having a tape deck, although I know that a CD is the modern trend.
I also miss windscreen wipers on the rear window.
The car is a joy to drive.
It is extremely comfortable.
What a pity it is spoiled by poor back up from the dealer.
