They have gave me a Grandland X Sport as a courtesy car. Lovely to drive and feel very solid built.

Awaiting phone call now to advise me what's going on with the car.
Will keep yous updated.

Once it's sorted can you update us on all work and parts changed and if possible part numbers.
Thanks

Will do mate. I've told them I'm not accepting the car back until it's done.

Weird one for me...and sorry I didn't update earlier. Got the car back last Thursday, and they did the following:

1. An ECU update (yeah I know...explain that one!!)
2. Drained all oil, replaced oil filter, filled up with brand new oil.

They said that I was on minimum oil which should not have been the case for a 7 month old car!

All pushed through on warranty. Funny story, they wouldn't give me a courtesy car as I am 20! Nonetheless, car has been OK since, so hope you get it sorted Jonny.

Hi.

Strange I would be more worried why it's lost oil ? That's what I would be questioning. Yeah I think age is 21?.

Yeah so hopefully mine is just wishbone and that's the end

Yeah I questioned that, and they don't think it was filled up to the correct amount, and wasn't rectified at the PDI stage. They have confirmed there is no leak. Strange, but there you go :lol:

Another reason for doing basic weekly checks, all modern cars do use a bit of oil

Good news might have to order a couple of wishbones. If you can get the part number that would be brilliant.
