That doesn't sound good. The most likely source is the head gasket. It needs looking at sharpish!

That's a good and fair point. I'd be interested to know what customer care say. Keep us posted and good luck

CPC I don't think that sounds right. It must be damp or condensation getting in somewhere it shouldn't.

Mine starts fine, even on frosty mornings.

geordiechris No, mine is the 1.0 litre but if yours does it as well then I can only think that it must be a trait of the car. The only reason I said it was a problem is because out of all the cars I've had since passing my test 25 years ago this is the only one to do that. In which case I won't bother taking it back to the dealer then lol.

It only affects the start up from cold as once the engine has been started then subsequent starts are perfectly fine with it starting immediately.

I have taken it back to the dealer who have only managed to replicate the fault just the once and in the end they gave it back to me as when the fault was replicated by them they didn't put the diagnostic equipment with them at the time so they presumed with it only happening once while in their possession that the issue was fixed.

My car still does this and I'm planning on taking it back to the dealers but with it being intermittent it's a case of how long they'll be prepared to keep it (which is why i've just been putting up with it).

Mine does the same. Must admit I hadn't thought it was a problem. Just needs to kick over a couple more cranks. I might keep an eye out for it though.

I assume yours is the 1.2?

geordiechris I also forgot to include the cold when describing the problem when starting from cold.
