Angry vel satis owner speaks out!

well I've had a great 2 years with my vel and in the past 4 months I have been crippled with an almost unbelievable catalogue of faults, resulting in my belief that my car prefers time iin the Renault than on my driveway.

Christmas was very nearly cancelled and some faults remain unfixed becuase my credit card won't have it and neither will I come to that.

the list runs:

replace headlamp motor 85
replace rear brake calipers 760
rear boot seal 170
replace rear windscreen ( excess only) 65
clean dirty butterfly valve on air intake 197
replace rear brake discs and pads 414

please don't make me add it up.

and why not include tyres? I've had 4 new ones in 4 months and that's 600 - and a 200 service of course...

I thank you. my next car will be a clio!
