VX2 Faults

Well I have done just over 12k in my car now since September and have a few interesting little faults / problems I thought you lot might be interested in.

1. If you wind all four windows down at the same time (someone farted) the windows will stop working and remain down till the engine is turned off and the car started again.

2. If you put a V6 in the limiter with the engine movement it will pull the hose off the head on the drivers side of the engine, happened to me thursday night (40 mins on the side of the road!!) talking to a guy in the know and he reckons it will happen every single time without fail as the hose is too short and when the engine tilts on the limiter it just rips it clean off and dumps the coolant in about 10 seconds.

ps. On another note, my old man picked up his brand new Au3 XL ute 5speed last week, after 1050km the thrust bearing shat itself so it's booked into the garage on Monday for a fix.

Car's I have owned. First car purchased in July 1994, in order of ownership.

The good, the bad and the ugly!

Will the old man let you drive his car again after doing that?
