Wheels (Australia) - - Our Garage -

Af­ter three re­li­able months, the Cac­tus chose our fi­nal weeks to­gether to go slightly mad. It hap­pened first on the free­way, where the dash shut down, then lit up like a Christ­mas tree, first warn­ing of an ASR fault and then no­ti­fy­ing that the ESP sys­tem had failed. Turn­ing the car off and on re­solved the prob­lem, but it reap­peared sev­eral times over the fol­low­ing week be­fore fi­nally seem­ing to fix it­self. This month also saw a slow leak in the left-rear tyre, which was an easy $30 re­pair once the of­fend­ing nail had been found.
