    Default 2 vectra C' gone to heaven

    I was travelling down the A34 from Oxford today and saw a crash, tow truck pulled out and clipped the back end of a vectra C, vectra spun and hit another car, the other car was then nudged by a vehicle behind! as that had unravelled half a mile down the road when the traffic was coming to a stand still another vectra C couldnt slow down in time (as it looked), lost control hit the barrier and then again a few other cars got caught up in it all.. 2nd accident looked slightly worse as the vectra's wheel was pushed back to his door (sideways) and front bumper was hanging off, on the other hand the vectra that had been clipped, had its near side rear pushed up to the rear door.


    Fun Day really. loads of cars broken down and lots of accidents!

    for those that dont know my job.... I work for RAC (but was given AA membership when i bought veccie LOL )

    True, if you called the RAC, one of your mates could come out & take the p.

    AA then it would be.

    true, but I would also get mates laugh at me from the AA, a load of us were discussing which cars harldy break down (boring I know, but it started when a conversation about buying a new car came up.)

    German and jap were the unanimous cars that dont tend to break down that often

    You'd rather use the AA...Hhhmm....

    1. These are the people that couldn't find us when we had a problem on car park of Hilton park services going northbound M6 around Junction 10a. Said They didn't know where Hilton Park was!

    2. These are the people that couldn't find my brother in law when he was 300 yards from the Exit of the junction to Oxford services going south on the M40....They were looking round Warwick services. By the time they got there we'd driven up from Farnborough and his hazards had flattened the battery.

    Thus far breakdown services don't fill me with confidence.

    looks like it was more than two Vec Cs that we need think about:

    So how is the Veccy C ranked in reliability terms by the breakdown bods?
