Vauxhall Astra Problem
The Problem

Dual mass flywheel and DPS within 2 weeks of sale
Aug 15, 2019 (6 months ago)
17 plate, 38k on the clock. Full service history. Bought car 3 weeks ago, in 2 weeks 2k worth of work (luckily still under Vauxhall’s warranty) for dual mass flywheel and now DPS change.

Am I just unlucky or is this a dud car? Any other issues I can expect/need to be aware of?

They have been replacing the DMF on a lot of cars under warranty for a while now . Advisable to replace clutch at the same time as DMF whilst you have it stripped down in my opinion and something I usually recommend .
