Been having a browse at all the old posts in April this year, main faults I have noticed on the adam is the stone chips, paint being thin, window wipers, misting in the lights, interlink playing up, nocking noises in engine, gears being stiff, petrol cap playing up and a few more, was really looking forward to picking up my adam in 2 weeks but reading all of these has kinda killed my excitedness <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" align="middle" /> Edited by: Kayl1990

Ignore all the posts about problems until you get your car, had mine 2 weeks now and worked myself up about the list of things to looks out for. But when turned up for the car it was absolutely perfect, no paint issues or any faults. everyone has a different experience

I'm very disappointed with mine, mine would start yesterday had to have AA out. A fault somewhere the battery keeps draining.

People love to moan... often about very small things which they seem to think are unique to the Adam... ignore it. Wait until you get yours and i'm sure it'll be fine.

Well if u had the problems I've had with my Adam then you soon have something to moan about, especially when you pay thousands & thousands.

As Emily and Alex has said dont work yourself up too much until you get your car. I picked mine up at the end of June and done almost 4000 miles in it and touch wood i have had no problems whatsoever. Washed and polished the car Saturday and no stone chips as yet (and i drive 50 miles on motorways each day!) everyone has different experiences and im sure if you go on another car makers forum there will be people who are experiencing the same kinds of things with their new focus/clio etc!

Dont panic, The faults people have been having are either unique or small niggles. Remember you have a warranty and if you use a quility dealer you should be fine.

I've had mine since April and have done nearly 5000 miles including a few longer journeys. The only minor problemsI've had are with the Bringgo app which I will try to get sorted and the wipers have banged twice soon after I got it and again if this happens again I will return to the dealer. It was sticky getting into 2nd gear initially but that is fine now. I love my Adam and really enjoy driving it. I have the 1.4 as my previous car was a 1.2 and it struggled on hills when we go to Cornwall but the Adam manages them fine and I can bravely even overtake on hills now!. Hope you enjoy your Adam

Issues get resolved like mine did, I've had 5 paint issues and got the VXR bodykit thrown in due to the hassle,
So all good!
If you have the issues and make a point you'll get reimbursed so all good.

Forums tend to have lots of post about issues because people need to vent / get help. I bet there are thousands here that haven't had an issue but just not posted about it. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll love it.

I've only had the wiper issues, then the fuel cap wouldn't close.
The wipers must have been sorted by now.
I fixed my fuel cap by taking off the body coloured part and refitted it and it somehow fix it!
