Has anyone had the problem of the vibrating exhaust at around 4000rpm? I understand that it is quite a common fault on 172s.
I rang my local garage and when I said that it was a common fault (EVO mag have two 172s on test and both have had this fault) they said that they knew nothing about it. The bloke put me on holdwhilst he spoke to someone else and came back to me saying that I was basically full of crap and that Renault UK had no reports either.
Anyway, I am sure that some of you may have had this problem and I was hoping that some of you would ring Renault to confirm that this is not just a one off. There number is a freephone one so getr ringing!! on 0800 072 33 72.
Secondly, when I spoke to Renault to report the problem I asked them about R-Sports options (as detailed in the Cup brochure). The reply was basically, that they had no idea what I was talking about. When I mentioned a roll cage and ECU the operator thought I was from another planet.
I dont know about you guys but if we all ring up about these issues then perhaps something mght be done.
Would appreciate your help on this one.
