    Vehicle : vauxhall

    Trim : 150

    Engine : 1.9 cdti

    Year : 54

    Default Vauxhall make my laught

    Just had a voice mail from vauxhall here in Grimsby.

    I asked for a quote on my gearbox fluid change.

    He said Hi we can not do a fluid change your you're vehicle as it is not a gearbox the requires a fluid change at all. We have check on the vauxhall website and this is not a serviceable item

    WTF!! so vx will not change my auto fluid because its not changeable so how come it has a drain plug and filler plug and the Haynes manual say to do it. and the TIS disk lists it as a field remedy


    makes my laught

    rant

    Hmmmm... I remember taking my 2.2 direct to them saying my fuel pump had gone,.. they insisted fitting every part on the shelf to 'see if it fixes'... then proceeded to call me to tell me they'd gone through the shelf and now you must buy the items we decided to fit to see if that cures it....told them to get bent and just fit a fuel pump, which they did, and cured the problem!!

    IDIOTS!!! - on a par with Prior Park in Hull them Wilson Grimsby boys

    I hate the way they fix things by throwing parts at it.

    Do it yourself or take it to an indy garage - there's nothing about a gearbox oil change that means Vauxhall are better at it than anyone else. I did my own and put in a darn sight more care and attention than a Vx grease monkey would have.

    All i can say is i use wilsons of grimsby mines in there at the minute and couldn't fault them..but then i do know the service manager very well and get looked after very very well.

    I would say referance them not interested in the oil change on the auto box will be because there unindated with work and cannot fit it in..wrong i have to say but never seen it so busy as it was today...every car park was chokka and not new reg stuff...

    Who called you back from wilsons....Dean or melissa?

    Aren't the VX auto boxes classed as "sealed for life"? Not saying you can't change the oil (because you can) but that may be why they are saying no
