  1. As many as 850,000 Vauxhall Corsas could have a wiring fault that can cause them to catch fire, a newspaper investigation claims. The fault is similar to the one that forced the motor giant to recall hundreds of thousands of Zafiras. Experts told The Sun newspaper that Corsa D and E models built since 2005 are potentially dangerous and can catch fire, with dozens of cases of owners reporting flames coming through the cars’ dashboards. Vauxhall has denied any knowledge of Corsa fires caused by the heating system. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2344371/million-vauxhall-corsa-cars-fire-risk-uk/
  2. Hi, I recently had a £800 repair bill to fix a broken wiring loom where it passed through a hinged part of body work designed and purposed for repeated opening and closing (power roof), the car is a 2009 308cc and i have owned it since 2011... Now to me this area is designed to move, it has wires that pass through it and as such if they have broken they have been spec'd or installed incorrectly at time of manufacture... Or do i have to suck it up and accept that parts of the wiring loom are subject to 'wear and tear' Thanks in advance for any advice... Paul
  3. My husband has a Audi S4 13 plate which had to be recovered and taken to an Audi Centre due to electrical fault. On board computer as they called it went mental putting out all sorts of messages and cut power on the car. It turns out that some wiring insulation and sound proofing has been damaged by rodents and the wiring has been damaged but this is not covered by the warranty. Apparently they see quite a few cars coming in with this problems. After living over 23 years in the same place my husband cannot understand why this has happened to this car. After doing some research it appears that in some new cars the insulation is manufactured using 'soy' which will attract the 'rodents' and therefore more and more cars are having to go the garage to be fixed. I'm trying to find out if the insulation in the car is made from or partly from 'soy.' What I would like to know is that could this classed as a 'defect in manufacture' under the terms of the warranty? Why should we have to pay because this obviously was not thought through? Any advice, most welcome.
