Faults and Technical chat for the Vauxhall Grandland

Not sure if this is normal behaviour or a fault. I went to full up the Grandland for the first time on the weekend. I noticed the petrol cap didn't unscrew as on previous cars but kept turning. I did though manage to remove it once it was aligned in a certain position. On replacing the cap I aligned the two prongs and turned it slowly clockwise. It seemed to tighten quite quickly but then loosened again, such that I could remove it. In the end I had to carefully tighten it but not too far to ensure it didn't release. The car is a year old, could it be a problem with the cap or is this action normal? My previous astra would screw in a few turns before clicking if tightened further.
I have checked mine, and it is a very positive quarter turn anti-c and it pops out, quarter turn clockwise and its tight, no click but no tendency to over do either. It sounds like yours is broken I'm afraid.
