    Default anyone else miffed with their Vectra?

    I'm not in a good mood went to service the car the other day and the sump plug is stuck fast, ended up rounding it. Plus I think their is a problem with my rear suspension which has taken the fun out of driving it because I'm worried the back end is going to let go. Now my steering is making a funny noise too.

    I'm not talking to my Vectra now.

    oh and I have to renew my tax this month and probably need 2 new front tyres. *sigh*

    Vehicle : 3.2 gsi

    Trim : gsi

    Engine : 3200

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Had to change battery last week.

    It just cut out on me today coming home from vx and i have no idea what is causing it as its done it like 3 times in past 20miles. Turns out though they have given me too small of a battery so ive now put the bigger one on (dunno if that can cause it? fingers crossed)

    But now ive ended up losing the thread on the plastic that the securing block bolts into so battery isnt very secure, had to wedge it with wood block at mo at the back :/

    Just bought a new grille and 4 of the 8 screws on my old one are seized solid and wont budge so may have to ask local garage to drill em out so ive not managed to change that

    At new years someone stole one of my gsi badges (well broke half of it off) and all my 3.2 v6 and badly scratched my car in the process. So after that i decided to debadge it all and now im left with a outline of a griffon.. gonna have to touch it up

    Recently started making horrible noise as i go over bumps also from the front end

    To top it all off ive just paid for my tax online

    Do i win? lol

    my brakes make a grinding noise at low speed, check the pads and they have lots left on them so thinking maybe it's just salt/grit? maybe yours is the same?
