Its a brand new 66 plate GTD with a little over 3000 miles on the clock, battery seems fine. I have only ever used Shell Diesel as well.
I have booked into the dealer as the struggling to start has happened again.
Does the software fix sort out this problem.

What is the lastest update version? My 14 plate does the lazy starting sometimes and I mentioned today to the dealer as my car was in for a service, they were so useless I was just wondering if I could check to see if it has been updated?

Thanks

I get it once in a blue moon with mine.Usually when it's pretty cold (in the mornings).Turns over for about 4or 5 secs.You think it isn't going to start but it always does. :smiley:
It will only bother me if it doesn't start.

Ive had it 4 times in two weeks in with the dealer now the last one was the worst its every taken to start threw out white smoke when it started. Also thrown up a fault code on the automatic gearbox starter enable from selector level sensor system
