    Defo your thermostat mate. To many people on this forum have had the same excact problem of the needle dropping down.

    New thermostat will cure the problem.

    That's what thought but I know for a fact they won't change it as it's expensive it's annoying tho when you pay £6500 for a car ud expect it to be all ok they'll say something to get out ov replacing it

    Defo thermostat - they are playing you about.
    I got my thermostat (genuine) for about £30 and took an hour to fit! So for the sake of a few pennies to the dealership they are out of order - especially if you reported it when you purchased it!

    Im taking its a 1.9 - if so they should sit and stay at 85c regardless of driving or not.

    Check out the how to's, it's a very easy job, and a thermostat (not including the housing) will cost about £10 from a motor factors.

    Have you got proof you reported it at the time of purchase? If you have, tell them that either they can do it as promised or you'll report them to trading standards
