    Not a good weekend...

    Had the car two weeks now, it's a 52plate 1.9tdi avant.

    Right so frFriday morning driving to work I can here a very faint squeak, and thought nothing of it, got into the car after work, and the battery light doesn't go out so I pop the bonnet. Auxiliary belt is really slack, so a phone call to the Rac is in order. A chap comes out and has a nose around to tell me one of the tensions has given up, GREAT.

    So I thought today I woul cclear all the snow off ready to take the car to the garage in the morning and I lift the rear wiper up and it comes off in my hand!

    GREAT!

    this is all after I serviced it last weekend and changed the thermostat...

    Bloody car, Ithought it would be nice a rreliable after a mk2 golf...

    Just one of those things mate, it's over 10 years old, rear wiper is unfortunate, but the belt and tensioner is just wear and tear unfortunately. We're having a couple of small teething problems with my wife's 2.0 avant that we bought her last weekend, it's only on 79k with full service history and a very meticulous maintainence folder but it's an 11 year old car so we've gotta expect a few niggly issues I guess.

    Yeah stuff happens after ten years, couple tweaks and it'll be good as new.
    Whack a grommet in the rear wiper, unless you feel the need to have one.

    As others have said - My car has cost me a small fortune the past year iv owned it, I guess that will come with any car of the same age though.
    That said - I wouldnt have it any other way, its a labour of love - plus I plan on keeping the car a long time!
