Just returned from 1700 miles across france in a week and the motor was fine apart from the Cruise Control cutting out every so often.

This also threw up the Engine light for a couple of hundred km's but all is good now.

I've noticed today that the car seems to labour starting up, maybe takes a couple more turns and there is a distinct rattle.

I'm wondering if the battery is getting a bit low as much of the return journey was at night with blower and air con on, lights and a portable dvd plugged in for little one.

I cant stick it on a charger to check until Thursday as the wife has it now and I'm in work.

Does this sound feasible or had i best join the AA and get my wallet out again?
