    Default Just had first service

    My 1.8vvt veccy went into the main dealers for its first service this week.

    I pointed out a few things that needed looking at and they have fixed them all.

    First was,since having a new modified clutch at 2800 miles ,the brake pedal was never as firm as it was when it was new.Also i still got an intermittent clutch judder when setting off in first even though it was changed.

    The garage bled all the brake system and now the brakes are solid again.Also the clutch action is now smoother with no juddering at all.I believe this is because the brake and clutch cylinders are the same and bleeding the brakes can affect the clutch(might be wrong,but hey i'm no mechanic)

    I also complained about the accelerator lagg which caused a jerk between 1st and second.
    They have now updated the ecu and when you change gear the revs stay up for longer so that as you change gear the revs are still high for when you let out the clutch and thus eliminating the jerk.

    So overall the car now drives much nicer and smoother than it did pre service so i am well pleased with my local dealer(Moorland Motors of Blackpool).
