    Default up date loss of power

    hi just an update from my last thread no power on acceleration, well its been running great up until last monday, finished work went to drive home, it took a good 10 seconds to fire up and i knew it wasnt right as running very lumpy. i tryed to accelerate and guess wot no power. anyway rang vauxhall they said would ring back, dint here a thing. next day rang salesman who sold me the car he said would sort it, dint here from him again. another day past so yesterday went down confronted them face to face. anyway after 3 days with no car they booked it in for fri,i looked at the swirl bar and its moving about and not seated properly, so this may be prob as you guys said, i have a gold AA warrenty cover on it so will cover the cost??? thats what they told me, so just have to wait now and see, oh and ive been usig my sisters hyundai, i10 its well nippy lads. cheers also is it true that if a car you buy from a dealer that the warrenty has run out if owt goes wrong they fit the bill if purchased it less than 30 days to it going wrong??? just a thought as why should i claim on my warrenty as only had the car 25 days when went wrong??

    Mate, just get it fixed free of charge - whether that's through the warranty or whether it's because the car wasn't of merchantable quality etc, doesn't matter too much. You need the car fixed, and you definately don't want to be paying it yourself - that's the important considerations.

    I'm sure its classed as a "reasonable about of time" that it has to be "fit for the purpose intended". At that age of a car i'd be expecting up to 3 months with no major failures so they are kind of obliged to fix it
