Popular Post Smapmap Posted February 18, 2020 Popular Post Report Share Posted February 18, 2020 (edited) Coming up on a year in my Evora so thought I'd update y'all on my ownership experiences to date. Issues I've encountered - now sorted Poor radio reception - turns out it hadn't been installed properly - sorted by dealer at no cost The starter motor gave up, which left me stranded - it was replaced under warranty and has been fine since TPMS monitor sheared and needed to be replaced. This resulted in a flat tyre - dealer sorted no cost Boot lid wasn't opening and needed alignment - sorted by dealer at no cost Rear tyre de-pressurising due to a TPMS nut not being seated properly - sorted by dealer at no cost Open issues I've still got the issue where the CEL & traction control light keeps coming on, forcing the car into limp mode. Craig Moncrieff has checked the car and think it's a correlation issue with the throttle position. He's ordered me a new pedal. I'm hoping this will finally resolve the problem. This has been a royal PITA. The driver window stopped working last night. Thankfully it's in the up position!! Taking it in on Friday for Craig to sort My warranty runs out on the 28/02 so hoping both issues will be covered and I've finally debugged this car!! Running Costs Two new rear tyres a few months ago due to a puncture Two new front tyres -- got 14000 miles out of the old P-zeros which is pretty good I think. Running 2.5Bar on the rears and 2.3B on the front. Really impressed with the wet weather performance of these MPS4S tyres. Given the storms recently the Evora has been brilliant. Will be budgeting £600 a year for tyres based on 12000 mileage. MPG is averaging around 27 for me with mixed driving. If i do a long motorway stint I can get 33-34MPG no problem. Other than that no other costs Overall impression of the car After a year of ownership I've got really mixed emotions with the car. it is the best car and the worst car I've ever owned. The worst because it left me stranded and has given me no end of issues, however I feel like I'm getting there and the car will be sorted soon. I'm thankful I had a warranty to cover this, so other than time and stress hasn't cost me anything. It re-reinforces to me how vital it is to have warranty and a decent dealer/specialist close by (Lotus get this sorted ASAP!). If I had to drive to Carlisle to sort these issues out the car would have been punted months ago. it is also the best car I've ever owned. Despite the issues I still love the car. here. It is absolutely sublime to drive. Totally relaxing on a commute and a hoot on the back roads. Edited February 18, 2020 by Smapmap 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
