I have owned this car since Mar 09. It was seviced in april 09 with 8000 on the clock, the normal oil change, at a price of £175, now the inspection light has come on with only just over 13000 miles. Spoke with main dealer who say its something to do with soot buildup on the catayst converter, and that the oil and partion filter need to be changed, not that i understand that...!!!.
They claim its down to short distance driving, so what am i meant to do, drive to scotland every 6 weeks...!!!
After 5000 miles since the previous oil change its a joke
So, owned the car for 6 months and will end up costing me over £350 in servicing. At this rate it will cost me more in service costs than i paid for it... pile of junk i think....!
Never had this with previous desiels i have owned, mind you they were BMW...!!
Any one any ideas on this, and is it normal, or is it the fact that the romans designed this engine....!!
Is there anything i can do to stop this happening.
