    Default Alternator died.

    Now either this is a common fault or i've got s**t luck. My last Vectra ate it's alternator 2 weeks after i got it at 61k, i had 2 aftermarket ones fitted both lasted approx a week before they died. A genuine Vauxhall one was then fitted and this lasted beyond the car being written off 18 months and 70k later.
    Now my new Vec has ate its at 79k and 6 days of my ownership, i'll be onto the dealer tomorrow to try and get this done through warranty. Are Vectras renowned for this as all the other cars i've had bar a MK1 Escort haven't had a problem.
