Agreed... unlikely

Not sure yet..

Did the tape test as you mentioned earlier, but haven't had a chance to really test properly.

Posted a thread on the US forum, and one guy had a similar problem running tyres in same size with winter tread.

Still 90% certain, that it has to be the tyre rubbing under full lock under certain conditions, yet to be determined..

Booked the car in for this Thursday to have the 2K service carried out..

Why do we have the diff, gearbox and engine oil changed in Oz and yet in the US, they only change the diff and Engine oil.

Not that I am complaining, just that it seems odd on the same car, different 2K service rules apply.

Applied masking tape over the affected area for 1 week of driving, and NOTHING..the tape is still there..

Must have been damaged from PD and I haven't noticed.
In fact, that was the first time that I had actually dried the car after a wash in the daylight. I normally dry the car in the garage.

Would a light sand, prime and touch spray do for repair or more elaborate than that? Strange defect this is.

Probably. It's not as prominent as it looks in the pix. That's why I have not noticed before. It's banana shaped and measures about 3mm x 7mm.

Might just leave as is.

It is small enough to do a quick touch job and not be noticed again except when someone goes looking for it. Give us a yell if you need extra hands

Everywhere else other than North America have all three oils changed. I think NA decided not to change for cost or logistic issues, and they determined that t won't cause any issues within the warranty period.

Thanks sparks. Although their bulletin states that the manuel transmission fluid should be changed on the 3rd and 6th scheduled oil service.

Good stuff! So did they say it's the norm (free service) or did they not charge you because of prior history?

Actually it isn't Ian.

My service was billed out " Used car warranty ".

In the end, its up to the individual dealers discretion.
