Nice car but the warranty sucks!

2 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 28, 2016

I like the Stavic, the service costs are very high, and the warranty is terrible. The minivan has a decent engine, lots of room, but feels very cheap. Two plastic parts inside the centre console broke during normal use. ParramattaAutoCentre refused to fix under their warranty or ACL. $345 Unhappy!

Answer this

No, I have not, but heck it would be a good idea to have one though.


Hi we recently brought a diesel 2013 Stavic owned it 4 days and the battery keeps going flat, we have had to jump start it a heap of times to get it going even taken it on long trips in hope of recharging the battery but if it sits over night it goes flat. We cant find anything left on over night in the car to cause it to go flat by morning. Could this just be that it needs a new battery? Or could it possible be something else? Cheers

Answer this

sounds like a battery issue. If it is an original battery that was with the car then it has had it. if you have no lights on the dash to saying there is no charging after starting then it is the battery. We have had batteries replaced using RACV. So if you are a member they will come to you check the car out and then replace the battery. if the car was purchased through a used car dealer in Victoria they usually are sold RACV tested and come with RACV roadside assist so you will only be up for a battery.

good luck

I agree with Paul, the battery "IS" probably the original one and 5/6 years old. Diesel cars need strong battery power to start them and 5 years is not bad. Check out if the battery sides are bulging out a bit, that is an indication of the lead plates corroding and making a short circuit internally between the plates. Don't go for a cheapy as diesel cars do need heavy batteries to start them properly.

Good luck Charity A.
