  1. Another Turbo Gone

    Turbo blown last week on my 130bhp 1.6 diesel. Doing sales rep miles so have done 43K in 14 months but it's not missed a beat until now and was proving to be 10 times better than the Sportage it replaced. Been super in pretty much every way to date and local dealer excellent. As per the other thread on this issue I drove for a day before reporting the whistling noise as it was barely noticable to start, and Renault Breakdown sent the RAC straight round - their guy though was not 100% it was the turbo as there was a noise when revs were coming down as well as when accelerating. Was told it OK to run into local dealer in Shrewsbury only 10 minutes away but they've confirmed the worst - turbo shot and new engine required - 3 to 4 week job. Had already sorted a hire vehicle so pootling round in a Hyundao i40 for now - Renault picking up the tab, but can't wait to get the Kadjar back as the i40's not a patch on it.................
