Something flash with the fgs u don't have to hold the key in the start position all you have to do is turn it the imediately let it go it'll keep cranking the vehicle until it starts. Something I thought was pretty flash.

One mate of mine has a fg xr8 and had a sump gasket leak 2000ks after he bought it brand new. Some times u just have to refer to the old saying s**t happens and be glad that a thing called warrenty exists

Don't feel so bad, your's is old compared to some of the FG's dying that I've read about.

One bloke currently on AFF has had his ute die at 250km and is back at the dealer.

The best one I've read about if a G6ET being driven home from the dealer had the motor implode having done all of 57km.

1700km, yours is ready for trade in by comparison. :lol:
