Re: My New GP has broken .

Give the stalk a good waggling, make sure its pushed firmly into the column and move it to its extremes in every direction, my car did the same thing on the indicator stalk after 100 miles, I was not impressed! But that mended it, or rather the AA man doing that to it did.

Oh dear not good. My dealer has my new TJet back in, because they scratched it during PDI. Gah. I've only done barely 200 miles. Still, at least I have a courtesy car. This dealer carelessness seems to be all too common these days.
I just hope they look after it during the repairs

They have given me a Fiat Doblo 1.9 m-jet while they sort mine, which wont be done for a while as they have scratched the dashboard with a screw driver, and they need to order a replacement. might see my car back around 2009 then.

Re: My New GP has broken .

Why would they be messing around with the dash on a brand new car, at the most the steering column shroud or the diagnostic port cover! Thats the kind of thing that gets people riled enough not to return there for servicing etc!

Took me a few days of new ownership to realise some moron left a long scratch mark near the ignition switch - either the dealer seriously needs to have his eyes tested, or Pamela Anderson was walking past when he was trying to start the car

Re: My New GP has broken .

my old honda had a light around the ignition keyhole which helped at night as at my age finding the hole can be difficult at night
