I've got a 2004 Espace Priv, and the CD changer is an Alpine unit mounted in the boot in the LHS cubby.
Since the car was delivered the CD's have been most erratic ... some times they play with no issue, other times they "skip", "jump", "pause" the condition of the road surface does not appear to be much of a contributor ... sometimes a large pothole makes it pause and then continue (error correction ?) other times a bomb crater has no impact ... it playes on quite happily. Smooth roads are a dream ... no problems but run over mouse droppings and the system skips, jumps and pauses, then continues (error correction again?)
Its getting to the point I dont want to listen to it any more.
My dealer has checked it every time its been in for other problems (13 visits in 2 years
) ... and always reports back "no fault found" or "we did not notice that happening"
cant believe this ... it happens too often.
They have assured me that they checked the transit screws... so its not that .........
... can any of the RTE's tell me the magic words to utter to the dealer that will get this fixed/repaired or replaced or at least tested properly.
Its due in the dealers for its 18k service later this week any feedback would be helpful.
