    Default Another AAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGG

    After sailing through MOT last Saturday, I now have a god awful noise coming from the top end of the engine, taken into local dealer ( have a good relationship with them ) and the car is staying there. Can you believe the next bit or what...

    15978 miles on the clock.
    55 plate, registered Jan 06.
    Full VSH

    And




































    The timing chain is on its way out, gobsmacked to say the least..
    They did however say that they will contact Vauxhall and fight in my corner to get them to pay for it.
    Has anyone else had one go so early...

    Feeling well p****d of to say the least....

    With only 15K on it I can't imagine the engine's had a good life mate - short journeys never warming up properly...? Not meaning you, just in general... It's not even run in properly yet...

    Well chuffed, got the car back Tuesday although didnt get back to yard till 10 last, car sat waiting for me, got to go and pay this morning. Spoke to vauxhall, had a rant, politically correct one though and got them to pay 70% after numerous valid points. original bill £645.54 plus vat and I got to pay £231 including Vat. what an absolute result huh and they have sorted the squeeking/creaking out on rear suspension too. Over the b***** moon....
