Let me start the ball rolling...

Found a water stain on the inside of the rear windscreen..seems like the rubber seal ain't that great..needs to be monitored.

hi BlackViper76,

yes, the first early service is for checking :-) normally it should not last long :-)

but if problems like the leaks that geylang is experiencing, crop up early in your ownership, then this is also the time to let CnC know about it :-) of course, this would mean budgeting for a slightly longer time in the service-centre for them to address the issue (possibly not immediately, but i guess they would try to address it properly).

i'm sending mine in this sat.
anyway, i feel the engine vibration during idling is a little excessive and the idling rpm seems a tad high..round 1k..
does any1 experience the same thing? or is it because its a 3 cylinder engine?

I agree...mine also vibrate quite a lot. maybe will ask them to tune it.

another thing i notice is that sometimes when u engage the reverse gear, it take sometime to response, maybe 2 sec. means...when u step on the accelerator it wont move.

Hi all..
I tink I did not feel the vibration of the car idle too excessive. I am pmping shell 98. Don't know if this help or what.. very smooth. Pump 95 a bit rough when clutch out and floor the pedal.

As for servicing, I am going in this sun to leave the car there for a few days to install spoiler, glove cover and arm rest. Getting a replacement car for that period of time too.

Hope they all do a good job in install al those above.
