Ive just taken the zr into the garage, Ive had it for two months and already 2 problems, i hope this isnt a sign of things to come. its a 51 plate

1st problem: horrible squeeking noise from the rear of the car whilst driving, ive had this from day 1 but havent had time to take it in, temporary solution turn up stereo.....

2nd problem: when starting from cold it judders like hell then i get a flashing engine management light which goes out after the third time of starting, also sounds v. loud even with the regular airfilter on, not good. fuel consumption has gone up. they seem to think its a burnt out cat but they didnt fill me with confidence, but will see when they phone me

currently got a rover 25 as a cover car :x:

All cars have squeeks, lock a mate in the boot so he can find out where the mouse lives in the back of the car. As for the engine sounds like some electronic trickery gone wrong along the way. If the dealer answer is naff take it to an independent mechanic aand get a proper veiw on things.

Check your boot latch and try adjusting the boot stops, either screwing them in our out. Somtimes it can be the spar wheel unless you have got a tin of gloop instead. Check that the rear seats are properly located in thier catches, especially if you have had them folded forward. Price you have to pay for performance suspension.

As for that probelm at startup, sounds like you have got a misfire. That will cause the engine to shake as it only fires on 3 and the magement system will pick that up. Could be dodgy HT leads arcing in the cold weather or a duff plug. Either way get your delaer to check it out as it should have recorded the fault code.
