Mate had a brand new Merc SUV last year which kept cutting out. After numerous trips back and forward to the dealers they finally decided to replace it, with a price adjustment for his mileage on the original one of course. ::) Bit scary on country roads in the middle of the night when everything goes black. :o

Their attitude that the fault wasn't critical sounds arrogant beyond belief

*waves* sorry Iím late!

Yup, sounds all too familiar, although brakes and steering... not in my case :-\

But indeed all too familiar and an inevitable consequence of the fault, not if, just when. Bastids   :-X
