All modern vehicles are fitted with highly advanced computer systems to enable peak performance whilst simultaneously offering comfort, safety and fuel economy. Incorporated within these systems is a ‘limp home’ setting, which means that should a fault occur, the management system will allow the driver to get their vehicle back home or to a garage for repair. The system will use basic settings and cause the engine to operate on reduced power, so limiting the possibility of any potential damage.
If you experience any driving faults (even minor hesitations or lack of power), warning lamps or messages on your dashboard then please call us immediately for free advice. If left unchecked, minor symptoms can sometimes lead to expensive repairs.
