    confused car still misfiring / idle problem

    just had me car back yesteraday from vx they have had it a month, boost solenoid had gone and also recirc diaphram.
    they replaced turbo complete and inlet manifold gaskets I think not to sure.
    engine felt tight for about 100 miles then seemed o.k, but when I stopped at a juction and tried to pull away after being on motorway for 30miles or so it had no power in 1st or 2nd gear but fine in all the rest.
    backfiring is back and car keeps loosing sink with the keys and won't let you open doors put new batterys in no change.
    Cruise control works intermittantly when it does work it cancels it's self then I get no power in the gears again.
    Idle flickers and car hunts same fault as before.
    I'm really pulling my hair out know anybody got any surgestions.

    i sure have.. throw it back at the dealers and get them to do it right....

    if the car keeps loosing sync with the keys then it's a faulty CIM module as well....

    get them to refer it to the VX technical centre at luton..THEY do know what they're looking at..they will first have to have a feild engineer out to look at it first, but the next setup is the luton referal..

    will they refer me though?
    should I speak to vx customer care as I get on well with the bloke their as he agrees 100% with me and the mistreatment by my vx dealer, or can it only be my local dealer that refers me to luton.

    nope, customer services can call the car in, or instruct the dealer to deliver it to luton..
