Anybody else having problems with electric shocks?
Once I switch the engine off and get out of the car I am getting a nasty shock - only started recently - mine is a petrol model

Could be the mats, seats and you making static electricity together (bit like what you get in carpeted department stores when you touch the lift button or stair rails). Avoiding nylon in clothes might help, and also tapping your hand on the car body to discharge the electricity.

Mine was doing the same but only when i wore my running shoes. Dont get shocked with any other shows or bare foot so im assuming its the rubber soles that are allowing me to ground any static when i get out and close the door

I personally havent noticed any shocks since I fitted rubber mats and juke seat covers a few weeks ago [ despite the the dry sunny weather.I am prone to static shocks and had a few jolts earlier on so its probably the mats doing the biz.

God, "It will be as you wish, Deks. I'll shall away to Yorkshire and verily I shall smite Joy's Juke."

I'm having the same problem, but also my passengers keep getting shocks. It's getting so bad that I don't want to drive. The dealership says there's nothing wrong with the car and don't know why it's happening. I have material seats and official mats, it's also a petrol model.

;)The 'shocks' are us discharging electricity to the metal frame of the car, so, strictly, we are giving the shocks, rather than getting them
