Also, the car has to be inspected (free) every year and any defects in the under-body coating repaired (not free) for the warranty to remain in force. The dealer also talked me into an additional Ming under-body coating to reduce noise and rust, but I don't think it is worth it. Doesn't seem to reduce noise on rough roads at all - the car is still quite noisy on gravel. -- Regards, Peter Wilkins (wilkinspnopsamnet.au)
