We have done 850 miles and the drivers door is making a noise, especially over bumps in the road, sounds like the door lock, it first happened when my husband was driving and I said you haven't shut the door properly!! Because everything's his fault
But when I drove it yesterday, I re-shut the door and it still makes a noise, we are going to mention it when we take her (Daisy) in for her 1000 check up, but wondered if anyone else has had the same problem?

I would still blame the other half. I would say he shut the door too hard!

Our dealer said we could get the car checked over after 1,000 miles
But he did say not many people bother, but it is a free check up!

Thanks for that, may just pop back after 1k and have the once over.
How you finding the drive ? I love mine find it so easy, except now and again on steep hill find you have to go up and down the gears, but maybe cause I'm used to a bigger engine.

I absolutely love it, great to drive looks good and I love the way it's so dinky, I've been driving my husband's Audi A3 convertible, which is great to drive but a bit big for me, especially parking
I do find like you I need to change down gears going up hills, but it is a small engine, so it's going to drive different, I also find it doesn't have the same power pulling away when you need it as a bigger engined car, BUT I still love it, I'm really pleased with it! I've always had Mazda MX-5 Sports, which has always been my favourite car, except I did buy the new mini cooper convertible when it first came out, but soon sold it as didn't like the drive
All I can really say about the VW up! Is I Love it, Love it, Love it!

I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, sounds like something's come a bit loose in the lock
Still LOVE my Daisy

I did ask about a 1k check up but the dealer said that doesn't happen anymore? No need apparently,as modern cars are so well built now.

I guess dealers must vary then, because ours definitely said we could bring our up! In for a 1,000 check up! Although he did say a lot of people don't bother, but we we're going to take it in anyway as it's free

Melody: Just out of interest did you have your car looked at with respect to the door noise? If you did, what did your dealership say caused the noise? Many thanks...
