I'm a bitworried because I've only got 5 months left on my warranty and once again my dealer is making me wait 3weeks for a first appointment. If they string it out/don't fix it before my warranty ends will I be covered because I reported it before it ran out or will I be fully liable for costs? I know 5 months is a long time but they have already messed me around for two months over a simple water leak last winter, which they never actually resolved.
The engine is making a horrible rattle noise that seems to be a prevalent problem from what I've seen online. I thought it might be a cold start thing but it’s actually worse the more I drive. Thanks

That garage/dealer seems like a joke.............and it seems like the "warranty" itself means very little to them, once they sold you the car they seem like they aren't very interested at all.

Personally think you should march in there as soon as you can, make a scene about the terrible service your getting from the place and threaten to report them to trading standards or even give talk to some potential customers about your treatment.
