  • Im concerned..

    Picked up my new 11 plate corsa vxr on tuesday and finally went out for a spin today to add some more miles to the clock, car had 7miles on clock when I picked it up and now it has the following (pic below)




    I was looking to see how you get the Engine temps up when I found this...this to me is alarming as now im thinking have Vauxhall toyed with my engine? is my engine actually new?



    To get the menu above I pushed the little button 4times held and then five times to display the actual engine temp but other options come up if you scroll through also!

            Could be 31 km and the 27k something else.
            Don't know why people are saying just enjoy it. If I'd have forked out for a brand new car I would want it right to.

                  IPC only has one mileage store on the EEPROM. That is the first 16 registers.

                  Translation: your car has not been clocked and those numbers must mean something else.

                    http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...ine-Temp-Guide! see this thread to what the figures mean i think we work out most of them in the first 5-6 pages.

                    but as wayne said....dont worry and get driving. its 100 miles less to fully thrashing the thing at a Power Event

                      they numbers correspond to the next service, you will find the more miles you put on it it will go down

                        Congrats on the new car dude - but c'mon - did you really think VX had put a USED engine in a brand new car? Don't be paranoid just get out there and enjoy it!
