    Default 09 elite

    Hi
    Is anyone having as much luck with their car as me
    owned it for 7 months now and
    1st breakdown was in skipton total rear brake failure new discs and pads had to be fitted
    2nd breakdown in stirling alternator failure new 1 fitted
    all this after only 3000 miles of ownership (23000 miles done in total)
    begining to think this is a bad motor

    I wouldnt be thinking its a bad motor with those problems mate.

    Brakes are consumables, and have to expect they will wear out over time... at 23k on the clock, i guess it depends on how hard it was driven by the previous owner(s)

    As for the alternator... thats just life me ole mucker. Gotta remember that is been made by man, so at some point it will more than likely fail!

    If thats all thats gone wrong, then dont be too down hearted. Have a read back at some posts on here... then you will really get some tails of woe!
