    Certain things after the 1st years Vaux warranty are not covered, i had a side of driver seat fray, it was after 1 yr, but the dealership i now use honoured it.

    Check with Vaux ASAP your best bet.

    They can repair the squeaky and knackered lumber with new parts, if they dont they goto change 2 front seats or they are gonna look ODD IMHO.

    Sounds like a good dealer? , dont let em fob you off
