Finally got a Vel Satis about 6 weeks ago having been seduced by them for a while.
It's a black Initiale (only spec / colour I wanted) 3.0 dci; and I'm loving it so far.
However, just recently on 2 occasions it hasn't started properly. Both occasions were after driving it for half an hour or so – then leaving it for 10 minutes. It would turn over (lights, radio working, etc.) – but just not firing up. Cold weather doesn't seem to be the issue.
Luckily both times this has happened, it would start again once I left it for 30 minutes or so. I took it to a "Renault specialist" but he said he couldn't diagnose it without the fault actually taking place (if anyone could recommend someone who knows what they are doing with Vels in the Newcastle area, that would be great).
Any ideas at all about what this issue is, would be greatly appreciated.
I love the car and would put up with things going wrong – as long as it still starts!
