Just info overall 6 problems with new 1.6 turbo 200ks

Post by Moby2002 » Fri May 19, 2017 8:09 pm

Yes...few days now i'm disscusing on this forum, but on monday i've sheduled service. Let me summarize all the fault that i have on 1.6 turbo petrol. Car has 3000 km now, and 1 month old. Also i'll send you links and pics so that you could be updated before and after service on monday. Once more-i really adore this car...but glitches are something i have to take care about. Apologies for bad english, i'm from croatia.

1) hood is 3 mm off balance on left side
2) https://www.dropbox.com/s/kfvx35wppke24 ... 5.mp4?dl=0
Listen to the squuek sound of belt...come on...this is new car :-)
3) skretching sound in steering wheel (not electric servo..trust me. I'm 37 year old and this is mine 16th car until now...i know the difference)
4) pic of front collision sistem stop working. It is on...but error on display
5) skretching in clutch...only while moving. Not while car is still
6) mine has most probably airbag problem. Not sure but regarding VIN number i think it is..i'll know more on monday. Link here:

Keeping you updated...and yes-car is soooo good to drive. Love it...warranty is here to solve my problems (next 5 years)...

The problem is not in the hood fitment but in that plastic panel in front of the hood, corners are not hold in place properly. While turning on spot its normal for el. power steering to make some noise.

So...info from dealer.
1) hood (plastic) is now ok and positioned correctly
2) squueking belt sound is alternator...replaced under warranty
3) servo is ok now...for now. No skretching sound anymore (could be something while they were working on belt and alternator)
4) clutch is not ok...but still not in such bad condition for replacement. No problem...i have time...it will breake down in warranty they say
5) no airbage problem regarding vin number
6) front collision info on display-never happened again...so nevermind for now
