    a few things that wind me up about my car..

    1. squeeking drivers seat.
    2. passenger seat doesnt want to tilt sometimes.
    3. the fabric at the front of the seat, underneat at in the middle comes up.
    4. traction control is too giddy.
    5. fuel consumption.
    6. fuel gauge inaccurate.

    so so irratating!

    yeah i know, tell me about it... u'd think vxl would do something about it..
    with regards to the seet fabric, that was replaced.... with exactly the same fault... the guage is ok according to vxl, even though it flutuates between empty and half a tank...when its full sometimes..passenger seat im told by vxl is due to the ange of the recliner of the seat, for it to work ok, u have to sit bolt upright.... and look a gimp in the process! argh stupid bloody dealers!!

    Which engine?

    The traction control only seems to work smoothly on the 2.2.

    One of the small things that anoys me is the absolute p!ss poor fit of the dash where it meets the ashtray, theres a huge gap all the way across. I dont know if its limited to the coupe, but its anoying. :?

    Good to see its not just me that has these problems!

    My passenger seat doesnt tilt properly either. VXL had a look and it was a snapped wire. Getting replaced next week. Will sort it ive been told.

    my passenger seat squeaks maybe once a journey so its not a bother,
    the farbric on my seat is always annoying, it can just be pushed back into its slot and then just bend the metal around with your hand, thats what i did anyway
