Arona FR, Trip Recorder and MPG resets itself randomly. Anyone else had this?

Yes my SE Tech does this.
It started after about 1000 miles, I normally have the display indicating "long term".
I thought it was a one off so did nothing but it happened again at various intervals eg 200 miles.
All the mpg figures are reset to zero.
At my first service ( I do not do many miles ) I mentioned it to the dealer as it had just reverted to zero but all they did was check for any fault codes which there was not.
Getting disappointed with my dealer as I also have had a mechanical rattle (sounds like drive train problem) since late last year when they had the car all day, heard the rattle, but once again found nothing.
These problems are spoiling a car which I should be happy with but coming up to 2 years old in June I fear its time is coming to an end.

Don't know if the exchange I was involved in on this page is of any help?
Although I've not had the trip recorder reset itself, never used it.

My Arona Xcellence Lux had this fault once or twice in the early days but for about a year, no issues.
Suddenly in the last two days it has happened twice. I usually have a display of mpg 'since start' displayed and that's what comes on when I start up.
On Sunday the display showed 'operating range' and had reset all averages to zero.
Today, Monday, when started, it displayed 'Average Speed' and had reset all averages to zero, again.
I will keep monitoring and maybe contact the dealer.

Sounds very similar to my experience. My long term is now showing 9 miles after the latest reset !
Please keep us informed what your dealer does as a few niggles are making me want to ditch this car.
