Be interested to hear the outcome of this.

On the plus side, as you say, it's only 2 years old so still within your warranty so all should be rectified. It's just the hassle of it all.

I know from experience that a major failure on a nearly new car is horrible. When I had my Merc C-class, at only 2 years old and 22k on the clock, it suffered a failed head gasket! Something that was extremely rare on their engines - I was just the unlucky one!. But it all got sorted under warranty, they gave me a replacement car during the process and it ran happily ever after once the repairs where done.

Hope you get the problem identified and sorted quickly. And as I say, do let us know the outcome - I for one would be interested.

Turns out it was the diesel injector pump. Has taken 3 days to order not yet fitted. Being done under warranty. (the garage wasn't sure it would be at first but that has been settled with no shouting).

That's what happened to me with my old Merc A Class just weeks after the end of the three year warranty. It cost £1300 to fix and prompted me to buy my Ceed.
