Has anyone experienced any noises from front drivers wheel? My cars a week old and the only way i can describe it is a rubber graunching noise a bit like a Ill adjusted plastic patio door that rubs when u shut it. Its almost as if the CV boot is rubbing together and is on too tight? Tyres OK brakes OK car running faultlessly. Checked underneath all ok . the CV boot is a firm rubber that's not too pliable compared to ones I have fitted and seems bunched together.

Sounds a bit annoying @MattIOW for a 1 week old car it's something you shouldn't expect really.Its a tad concerning for when I get mine. Was your car proberly PDI checked ? If I was you I'd go back to your dealer and tell them to put it right b4 further damage is done by the noise.

to be honest tho all that should of been checked on the PDI that's what u pay for when u buy a new car really. Hopefully you will get this repaired when u go back there then.

Yes Keith. Have a lovely set of Michelin wheel trims fitted now and is noise free. How's urs going?
Really REALLY pleased with mine Matt. Had the car one month tomorrow and just filled up (I didn't need to, still had 230 miles left in the tank!). Getting an incredible 61 mpg and you know how awful Island traffic is for slow, stop/start journeys, so that just makes that figure even more amazing.

530 miles on the clock as of today.

Filled mine up twice since I bought it. Once wen I got it and once at end of April. Have done 160 miles since last fill up and still have 3\4 of a tank. My old car would have done well over half a tank by now. (My old ones on wightbay now lol for 2nd time)

In regards to Fuel fills I feel my Sandero is a little bit heavier then my old car, when iv done 585 miles in my car since taking delivery but iv made more one then 2 trips to the petrol station more like weekly for me. But found my old Fiat Stilo with 6 gears would only cost £20 a week in fuel personally it don't do the maths for me I'm a tad disappointed with it.

Yes @Gex it is the petrol version of the Sandero. I would of gone for the 1.5Dci but it had a higher price tag then my pocket could afford. Next time I'll go for diesel.
