          If the warranty has expired I think you will struggle with this - might be better for you to find any Field Remedy corrections that might relate to the CIM and show that your car should have been fixed?

            i have spoken to a lawyer and he said cause it is a common defect on thousands of cars they law states the goods are not fit for purpose and this applies for 5 years if i can prove this is a very common problem which it is

              It's actually 6 years - but it's proving the fault was there originally that's the problem and it could be more costly than doing the repair yourself
              And even if a few thousand cars are affected - it may still be a small percentage of the total sale of those cars

                from what i,ve seen on lots of forums this is a very wide spread problem more common on 06 plates

                  Forums can distort the truth - Piston number 4 on the Corsa is a good example of that
