    Thumbs up Warranty Work -

    Hi All,

    my Signum is in the Dealers today being inspected under Warranty for the following:

    * Clonking from Fr Suspension - (I suspect worn bushes/ similar due to 19"s).
    * Rattling from o/s & n/s rear - sounds like loose tailgate.
    * Small Oil leak from engine hose between block & Head.
    * Faulty Fuel Gauge - Reading 1/4 out.
    * Rough idle when started - cold or warm - it hunts like mad...

    Sounds like a lot - but it has covered 22K in 12 months.....

    My question is - how old is your car & how much warranty work has it had done - compared to mine?

    Cheers - Matt

    22K in 12 months? That's not a lot.

    Matt.
    Small Oil leak from engine hose between block & Head.
    Andyvec show'd me the very same thing on his and told me watch out for it. Mine is ok. Maybe a common fault.
    Also i have a creaking noise at the rear of mine also. Let me know what the dealer say's please.

    Thanks SHAN

    Hi Shan,

    I have seen the leak on AndyVec's too a while back. Though mine only started leaking a few weeks ago.

    I will keep you updated about the creak - though I suspect it is the body flexing and Vx will be able to do little about it.

    Cheers - Matt

    Thumbs up

    So - Just picked car up from Dealers:

    * New Drop Links fitted on Front Suspension - noise has disappeared for now.
    * Replaced Vacuum Pipe - well looks like they have re made the end/ new clip.

    Parts on Order:

    * New Fuel Tank Sender
    * EGR Valve - to hopefully sort the rough idle out.

    Parts not Covered by Warranty:

    Sorry Sir - your 12 Months interior/ Rattle warranty has expired (13months old). So we know you have a rattle at the rear - but you will have to pay to have it sorted..... Yeah right. Whats the complaints address?

    Whats a 12 month rattle warranty? never had that mentioned before? Surley something has broken and should be covered?

    I had a rattle in the rear of mine. Only just realised it was a CD case in the roof storage compartments
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Interior Defects - Including Rattles are not covered.

    So If I had been able to get the car in in May - they would have sorted the rattle.

    Which ironically seems to be getting worse.....

    I will have a look at the rear seats and headlining this wknd. I need someone to sit in the back seat whilst I drive and find the exact source of the leak.

    I suppose I could put the Cruise Control on, on a long straight road and get in the back.....

    My car was coming up on two years old in June
    I booked it in for (what I thought was) its first service
    Included was a small list of faults
    The front driver seat has two faults
    One has been fixed, the other requires a part
    Both completed as part of warranty

    Okay,

    so I think I need to check my warranty T&C's - & speak to the VX Dealer who sold me the car.

    It has to go back to have the Fuel Sender & EGR Valve fitted. so if I get my facts right - I will put up a fight to have the rattle sorted.
