Hi

I am (or thought I was) lucky to have my dream car but it has been a nightmare

The coating of the leather on the seat keeps wearing away, boot keeps locking itself them will not open!!!!!!!!!! just to mention a couple of points

Anyone had simular problems?

What year is it? I don't have one but it's my understanding (at least with

the boot problem) that it might have something to do with the newer

safety feature release thing so people can get out.



As far as the leather, do you park it outside in the sun? That'll do a

number on it.



If it's new enough, you might complain (nicely!) to your dealer.

Hi

The car is 2 and a half years old and only has 13,000 on the clock, one careful lady owner

They have changed the seat out once and re-treated the leather seat twice but the problem keeps coming back

The car is parked outside but it is nothing to do with the sun, the dye sprayed on top of the leather keeps wearing away. They are racing seats so I do tend to brush up on the edge when I get in and out but this should not cause this to happen

I thought the leather would have been top notch but is isn't

Hi

Hubby changed his Jag for a Cadaliac but regrets it, so bought himself a nice toy! It is a 1958 ford custom series

The rad just leaked and had to send away for repair, took weeks
