    Default please help

    It is with a heavy heart I write this post. But unfortunately I think the Insignia has to go. It has a fairly bad steering wobble at around 70mph which Vauxhall refuse to investigate due to the fact I've changed the wheels, even though it has been independently tested and proved that the fault does not lie with the wheels. I've tried three different dealerships and they all say the same thing " yeah, no problem mate. Bring it to us and we'll sort it! " but when I arrive they look and say " it's ya wheels causin that pal " and when I explain the wheels have been tested blah blah..... I just get fobbed off. I've even tried the health and safety plea, but to no avail. Non of the Vauxhall dealership give a monkey's after they took my 30K.

    Sorry to be negative but I'm at my witts end and don't know who or where to go from here? Don't want to sell her but I can't drive it like this

    tried that, but it has been logged on the system the car had after market wheels, and it cost a far wack when I change them because the valve are radio frequency and not reusable apparently.

    Thats the annoying thing they were told about the problem before the wheel change but said because it happens only at 70+ no one could test the vehicle!

    I've tried buddie but they look at the computer and say any damage was caused by the new wheels. The guy who tested the new wheels owns a race team, so the wheels where x-rayed, scanned, laser balanced. He reckons the drive shaft is to blame?
