    Default Car Going In

    Got the car going to vx again with the same prob!...
    gearbox is very notchy and not engaging smoothly...had it in several times for gearbox linkage but somehow i think the problem is not that if it keeps happening!..also might ask them to look at my suspension as it doesnt seem to be handling very well at the mo...seems very unstable...any ideas? tyres are fine..but I am getting a knocking noise which is doing my head in...vx said noisy tyres last time with uneven wear..!!

    I have the notchy problem but only when it is cold. Took it into VXL and they said nothing wrong with it!

    Seems to me that this is a common problem that needs to be addressed! As soon as the warranty runs out were knackerd its out our own pocket!

    I think the cables you are on about Dwabo are for the gear changeing, It could be possible that they have stretched, that may be why you have notchy gear changing, just a thought though, But I hope they get it sorted for you as soon as posible..

    aren't Vectras notorious for having notchy gearboxes? especially the low gears. it's just the way they are - mine is the same.

    unless you're having trouble actually engaging gears.

    Maybe your right but every now and then when cold going from 1st to 2nd it can be a but dodgy. Once warmed up no problems?

    get them to check the antiroll bar links and bushes...this problem is as old as the hills and they'll know about it...
