Please post where you are with the cam issues we've been seeing.
Oh, you're very welcome.Do some research on the subject and you'll no longer fail to discern the validity of this thread.
Oh, and thanks for the "philosophy of Lotus ownership" lesson, but some of us, believe it or not...get it. -poke-
Lotus doesn't make the engine? Really? I didn't know that. :rolleyesOh, you're very welcome.
By the way, Lotus doesn't make the engine.
Incidentally, I was waiting for a comment like yours. Can you tell?
Need I say more?
i fail to understand the validity of you voting in a poll that you clearly have no business voting in...I fail to discern the validity of this thread.
Anything God didn't make is subject to flaw. And some things he did make....like us.
Does this , in and of itself equate to - anything that Lotus manufactured is subject to the same flaw throughout any and all production runs?
I voted : at least one bad cam not covered under warantee.
I don't even own a lotus , YET.
I've noticed that certain owners expect the Lotus car to exude perfection.
This car is expected to surpass the quality of all others, never break down, never have a simple, minor problem, and OH MY GOD......Lord forbid, it rattled somewhere along the way when I hit a bump.
This deserves my utmost attention and I shall bing it back to the dealer.
Here's a little bad news.
It's a car.
It's going to have imperfection.
It's a sports car and one of the only TRUE sports cars on the road today which multiplies the imperfection factor many fold.
What it lacks in luxury, it more than makes up for in "thrill."
It looks good while it's doing it, perhaps better than 98% of the cars presently on the road.
Cars break. That's just a fact of life.
All of them, not just the one you own.
I would bet Keeper wishes that were the case. He had 20K+ mi. when his stuff hit the fan.++
...i expressed concern when i had my elise serviced earlier this week, since i have no other reference on what the engine should sound like when pulling from low RPMs, and was not only told that my car sounded perfectly normal, but also that if cam lobe / rocker arm failures don't occur within the first ten thousand miles or so, they likely never will...
Your post is rude and off base. If you were confused about my intent, you may have thought to ask for clarification before jumping to assumptions and innuendo. You're new, so I thought I'd see if this was your normal routine, when I found this post. I'll just say that I found it interesting.I fail to discern the validity of this thread. [ . . . ]
