Any advice. Thanks
Think yourself lucky it was only a couple of weeks!
My 16 month old 14 plate Summit CRD has been in the dealers for 7 weeks now with engine failure. Initially diagnosed as injector knocking by jeep despite it being a lower engine knock, its now engineless pending a complete new engine replacement on a car that's only done 16k!
Not to mention the other issues its had prior under warranty including fuel pipes coming loose, sunroof issues, and alloys needing replacement for blistering!
Yes its under warranty but you don't expect a new car half way under warranty to have engine failure and need a replacement engine!
