Re: XR8 engine problems and more
I have had no engine leak problems indeed no real problems at all apart from a constant jiggling vibration through the seat, footwell and the steering column. These are the optional 18's. First noticed it at 800km. Intentity seems to vary with different road conditions but the vibration is always there. Not happy Jan as its difficult to enjoy all the other positive aspects of the car. Thankfully the dealer agrees that it is a problem. The dealer has matched balanced the wheels and tyres which made it a little better but its still there and very annoying. Dealer has tried wheels and tyres from another car which according to the dealer has eliminated the problem and is suggesting that its a problem with the tyres but cannot yet pinpoint what. I would suggest that for a $55,000 plus car all the tyres should be replaced but given that expense the dealer is considering all options which we will be examining this week. Dealer has looked after me to date so am prepared to give the dealer the benefit of the doubt at the moment. Heres hoping for a happy outcome with no stop gap, penny pinching solutions.
