    Default Please help, i've had enough.

    Right alot of you have probably seen some posts by me in regards to my 53 plate SRI 2.0 Turbo that i picked up 4 weeks ago. The last post was about the starter motor not disengaging and burning it out, well i have been back to the garage today for an update on what the problem could be. They have now fitted a new throttle body (not related, for a different problem with idling) and a new starter motor yesterday but it is still doing the same. Turn the ignition key once to take the steering lock off and fine but turn it to 2 to bring on the ignition lights the car will start itself up and starter motor is still engaged. It also sent the car into limp mode, fan is on constantly and stated juddering about with the speedo needle and rev counter needle going completely nuts. Now i think i have been patient enough as the car has now been back about 8 times now for various problems but some advice on what the problem could be would be greatly received and i can then pass it on to the garage.

    Well money back is on the cards but in the short time i have been able to use it i have loved it. This is the last chance they have to sort it as they have had it back longer than i have had it but i have still managed to clock up about 400 miles in roughly a overall ownership time of about 3-4 days.

    Your in Luton? Maybe you should drop it back with Vauxhall and they can have another go at putting it together again!

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, hope it get sorted soon!

    Well I bought my '03 ls from there a couple of years ago, and had no problems with it, apart from the knocking from the front end which turned out to be the ARB drop links etc, but they weren't too helpful at finding the problem, had to go back a few times and didn't find the after sales service too good. If it's the red 2.0T sri they had a while ago...around £3000?...my friend went to have a look at it, and was told she couldn't take it for a drive because it needed a new ECU and wasn't driveable at the time she saw it, so I told her not to touch it...had quite a high mileage as well I think...? Sorry if it's the same one you bought..looked a nice car..but had a few too many problems and wasn't driveable at the time she went to view it. They give you a 3 month warranty if I remember rightly, so take it back and make a fuss...sorry about the problems your having..hope you get it sorted mate!

    Thats the one, so far it has had the ecu replaced, front discs and pads, timing chain tensioner, starter motor and throttle body, its also been back 3-4 times for the emissions light coming on so it could be the sensor in the exhaust or the catalyst. When its running it is a lovely car, its just so rapid. In their defense they are doing the best they can under the warranty and are changing any parts that it does need.
