not been able to find the fault as none of them will take it out on the open road to do it, but will only do 60km/h in local streets. One thing I have noticed though is that the front right hand brake is extremely hot when I pull over during a vibration event. What could cause this?
Waynne Lee My gut feeling is that it may be something as simple as a sticky thermostat.
Wayne Curtis not a huge cost. I find it difficult to understand why the lost items are not covered by the warranty. The dealer advised me to use some Blu Tack to retain them. It seems to me that the probability of losing two in two months indicates there is a design problem. Is there anything I can do? The Volkswagen warranty seems to be designed to make a disgruntled customer out of a satisfied one.
Rick Fernee car yard has admitted they can’t fix it and told us to keep the car above quarter of a tank of petrol. We just want to have the problem fixed.
AThe new car warranty has expired, so I suspect you would have no claim against Holden. It’s clearly running out of fuel and there could be a couple of reasons for that. One, it could be that the gauge is wrong and it’s actually running out of fuel when the gauge is indicating that its quarter full, or two, it could be having trouble picking up fuel in the tank when the level drops. Both possibilities need to be checked.
QMy 2010 Hyundai Getz SX 1.6-litre auto averages just 10.5L/100km, which to me is rather excessive for a small car. Hyundai has told me to wait until the 15,000km service, giving the computer time to bed in. They suggested I put 95-octane fuel in the car and monitor the usage, but that had no effect. Have you heard of such problems with the car?
