Welcome Angela A and thanks for your contribution. Pop back with any questions when you get your yeti as there is always someone willing to help out.
Indeed!My late neighbour had a thirteen year old Aygo that had done just 6000 miles. It was dealer serviced every year and absolutely immaculate in every way, so there are exceptions.
A 2015 car may have the later 2.0 diesel engine which is not subject to that Service Action. The change over was around June/July I think.If it has not already been “Fixed” for the EA189 Service Action, you may want request that it isn’t? Although if they are still giving the extra component warranty on those (from the date when the Fix was applied), you may want to let it go ahead?
Thanks for that. Really helpful. Yes mine is July 2015, the newer Euro 6 engine. It has SCR in the title so must be the type you're referring to.A 2015 car may have the later 2.0 diesel engine which is not subject to that Service Action. The change over was around June/July I think.
One easy way to tell is look or ask if the car has an AdBlue tank in the boot. If it does have that tank, it's the later engine.
Another way is to look for the letters SCR in the formal description of the car. SCR = later engine.
I agree 100% with Flintstone and The Hood but sadly, keeping a car out of a garage can also be detrimental. I live in a reasonably respectable part of Brum yet neighbours have had cars keyed, wingmirrors wrenched, wipers bent or stolen, tyres slashed, badges removed etc. Two neighbours have had BMWs stolen from their drives. To be fair the frequency of these incidents has reduced massively since the local pub/club closed down but I still prefer to keep my Yeti out of sight and within the protection of my garage. Maybe I should move away from Brum...Keeping a car in a garage can actually be detrimental...
I believe this to be true as well. When I checked with my own insurance company (little red telephone) the only stipulation was that the car is "kept at" my home address - not necessarily inside a garage.Incidentally, I believe that some insurance companies see a garaged car as at increased risk of minor damage while entering and exiting the garage and raise premiums accordingly.
