Engine Fault

Hi we had the same thing happen to us as we started the car one day after purchase, apparently just before we picked it up some idiot decided to pressure wash the car and as a result jetted water into the engine compartment.
One of the ignition coils blew and the performance of the car was notably affected. luck for us the car was still under warranty so it was back to the dealer (Carcraft) and they fixed in 20 - 30 minutes.
We did think of taking to a Renault dealer who said they wanted 85 just to look at it !!!!!!.
So when our car wants a service i suppose in three years time which gives us enough time to save up for a second mortgage some little erk at the front desk will be rubbing their hands together ( Oil ) .
I am a builder i cant wait for him to phone me for a quote on an extention.
