I drove a brand new VE Clubsport home from the dealer (approx. 4km) and parked it in my garage. The next day I went out to find the gearbox had dropped its lunch (oil) all over my garage floor. So yes you will occasionally find not everything leaves the factory as perfect as it should be. It’s been close to a month now since the OP started the thread so it would be interesting to know if he’s taken it back to the dealership for that all important test drive. From the symptoms he's outlined I do suspect there is some driver error involved but I'm happy to be proven wrong.
