Irregular rust corrosion from the first week of ownership. Tire Auto part Wheel Automotive tire Spoke
Tire Automotive tire Auto part Wheel Automotive wheel system


Fuel cap leakage after 2.5weeks of ownership. 5 times so far.
Filled it up till full and it starts leaking as soon as I start driving. Yellow Automotive lighting Headlamp Vehicle Automotive exterior
Yellow Vehicle Car Automotive design Orange


Hard to find 2nd and 6th gear.
4th gear knocks to neutral intermittently when I'm accelerating.

Alarm activation button (Lotus Logo) on the key doesn't activate the alarm. Note**CR doesn't come with central locking, just the alarm.

Off-topic: Car runs extremely rich due to 200cell cat. How to solve this problem especially with a T6 ecu? I know someone in Hong Kong who can remap the ecu but it must consists of EPROM soldering before it can crack into the protocol. Are there any safer ways like Piggy back or Aftermarket ecu to override the current factory map?

Did you buy new or used? I'm shocked by those issues

What the hell? You need that A-arm (is that what it is?) swapped, maybe they forgot to galvanize it or something. And for the fuel cap, is there a seal or something missing? Crazy.

If you overfill the tank, it can leak (like you pictured). The A-Arm needs re-galvanized, or, it needs to be powder coated to protect from corrosion.

my guess is that battery acid leaked down to the A arm. Pull up the trunk carpet and have a look at the fasteners in the bottom of the trunk.

Where can we get those keyed gas caps?

just a dash of road salt could yield similar damage.
