Just looking for some advice. Our Sportage 4 (petrol 1.6) is almost 2 years old with only 6500 miles on the clock.
Our Motability vehicle is for our disabled son and we mainly complete short local journeys to appointments etc with him.
While driving over the last few weeks, we noticed the car has had a judder and yesterday the exhaust particulate filter yellow dashboard light has come on.
Contacted the dealer and while they are going to look at it, I felt the service department were quite dismissive “oh, do you do mainly short journeys? The car needs to be driven at a higher speed for 20-30 minutes and that should clear the issue. Can you not take it on the motorway?”
I don’t remember a conversation when ordering the vehicle that it was not suitable for shorter journey use and feeling a little annoyed about it.
Should I be?
