    Default Chain Inspection

    So my car goes to an independant garage tomorrow thats on the warranty direct network to have the chain checked out,

    I am thinking of also writing / calling Vx as my car is approaching 4 years old, 57k and if its the chain then thats not right surely

    Should i pursue for some kind of good will gesture or leave to the warranty direct garage,

    You can pursue them mate but you wont get anywhere on the chain issue.

    Vauxhall coughed up 70% of the repair bill for mine.

    Paul,

    get them to produce an invoice for no fault found for your records THEN if there is a failure you can say ..."well i told you so" and it shows a history of the fault being recorded at an earlier Date than when/if it does fail

    also garages are DESPARATE for work at present ......if there was a fault they would have found it so they could get some revenue

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    S'pose your right mate , i mean a chain would have cost a few quid !!

    Will get them to mark it in the invoice,
    Cheers Dez !
