ive had my car about 3 weeks so so, only done 600 miles so was not expecting any problems...

i was driving to uni this morning, doing about 25mph. then i look down and my speedo and rev counter are settled on the needle, like the car was off!!!

i thought " sh*t" so i put my hazards on just in case ond moved over, then as i was doing this it felt like my power steering had been turned of.

has this happened to any body else? what was the cause and solution??

the weird thing is my dash lights, sidelights, stereo and wipers werent affected and when i turned the engine off/on it has been fine since. taking it back to dealership todat to let them have a look, so will let you know later. hopefully it will be good news

Really very scary stuff! I had a mate whose speedo dial on his Punto dropped to zero, and what had happened was it came loose from the spindle, then when we stopped and drove on it seemed to pick it back up. Doesnt seem like anything like that has happened to yours, really odd. good luck getting it sorted!
