    Default Warranty about to expire/MOT Due

    My car is about to turn 3 years old and we all know that means no more warranty and its first MOT..

    So...

    What can I do to make sure everything that needs to be done on the car gets done before the warranty expires.

    I was thinking of taking it to a local MOT station and ask the inspector to more than usually thorough, but that probably won't catch any potential engine issues?

    also, I have 2 potential issues:

    1) I have had to to up with water a few times this year and I'm not sure if that's a sign of a potential leak somewhere or just normal?

    2) When in neutral and I lift my foot of the clutch I can hear the engine change sound at a certain point, I can really feel anything so I'm not sure if that's normal or not.

    Suggestions welcome

    What gearbox does it have, I have just had my 2006 Auto box replaced under warranty after I had to put coolant in it several times, there is also a problem with some header tanks that seen to weep when hot, had that changed under warranty to. The auto box had some indication of water in the transmission fluid.
    I would get Vx to check it for coolant loss before the warranty runs out.

    When you take your foot off the clutch and the engine note changes - are you sure it's the engine you can hear, rather than the dual mass flywheel? If it is the DMF, I believe that's a sign that it's on the way out.
