Drivers door stay came away, needed welding. (Common fault apparently) Body shop removed door to do job and caused airbag warning light to come on. Reset by dealer.
Auto gearbox went berserk with lights flashing on selector and would only work manually. Dealer had shot water into electrics when cleaning engine bay. Two attempts to fix this.
Brakes spongy and long pedal travel. Waiting for dealer to fix this.
Fluid leak from rear of engine. Dealer has fixed this, but gave vague answer as to what it was!
Electric sunroof squeaks when opening and rattles in tilt mode.
Dashboard light bulbs blown. Several.
Loud 'clacking' noise from engine when cold. Dealer says is 'exhaust manifold leak'. Waiting to get this fixed.
Auto box jerky in low gears. Snatches badly on kickdown or hesitates. Dealer says 'oil level in box may be low or needs oil change' Waiting to get this fixed.
Oil leaks from both camshaft housing covers. On the list for dealer to fix.
Gear selector lever locking tab rattles. Irritating! On the list to fix!
Have had a bad start with this car with multiple problems as listed. Dealer has been pretty good about sorting them out although has argued over one or two.
It is a beautiful car though. Gorgeous silky smooth and comfortable with oodles of power. It looks the part too despite what people have said in reviews about 'bland styling'
There are so many 'toys' in this car I for the first time with a car had to read the manual! Climate control is confusing to operate manually so leave the thing in auto!
The value for money with this car is extraordinary. I paid £6000 for it and friends have been staggered by the package you get for your dosh. It is amazing.
Fuel consumption is remarkable for such a big car. 37.6mpg on a 300+ mile trip to Cumbria up the A1 from London. Mixed driving I get around 27mpg provided I take it easy and avoid roaring away at lights which is easy to do with this car.
