    Here are the issues i have had

    Headlight unit replaced - due to a faulty seal leading to condensation
    vinyl black door strip - is pealing away, vx have agreed to replace
    squeaky clutch peddle - just required some grease
    various rattles - non-identifiable - assuming nature of poor fittings
    bonnet sensor - vx replaced but still have trouble with it on poor quality roads.
    wheels incorrectly balanced from factory - resulting in some wobble under mid-high speed breaking, recently fitted new tyres and had wheels balanced which rectified the problem.
    tyre sensor issues - intermittent reporting of incorrect low pressures.
    sticking hill start assist - only happened twice, keeping an eye on it.
    Slider rail on passenger seat really stiff.

    in fairness to VX when i reported the issues they were quick to act and fix the problems. however, the condensation on the headlight has returned now on the other unit which is slightly concerning as it is supposed to be a sealed unit.

    I don't think any of them are that 'bad' IMO. More annoying more than anything.

    +1, no worse than any other brand of car

    At least none are mechanical.

    i have also had the carbon wing mirror caps replaced as driver side had came away.

    To be honest, i expected have 'some' issues with a new vehicle and every time i have had an issue VX were very helpful and quick to fix. The only ones that frustrate me are the rattles and the bonnet sensor (personally i think its a design fault) but due to the fact i specified the performance pack and the roads i use daily being terrible i kind of expected it. and like i have said most issues have been fixed most of which are visual.

    None of the problems have stopped me enjoying the car, just the bonnet sensor at times when out on B-roads can be frustrating.

    My air conditioning decides when and when not to work, and my thermometer doesn't work apart from every time it rains or I have the car washed it reads -40oC now will those faults be rectified by vx under warranty?
