    Smile inlet manifold

    had my vectra 1.9cdti sri(150) for just over a month and noticed that the swirl bar had fallen off so called the car dealer where i got the car from and after a week of arguing with them i reported them to motoring federation and my wife wrote to the deaer saying that we had reporterd them.

    and when i got home from work today there was a letter on the floor from the dealer. they said that the swirl rod was ok when the car was sold to me but as a gester of good will they will supply me with a new inlet manifold all i got to do is pay for it fitting by another garage.

    what a result aspecialy when the month warranty has run out.

    Uhh, inlet manifold itself is the cheap part mate - about 160 quid on eBay. Fitting? That can be another 500 or so - it's not a quick job...

    Dont accept it mate, if you do you potentially forfeit the right to have it repaired. you dont say how old/mileage price aid etc, but essentially as it was bought from a dealer you are still protected by sale of goods act and the car should be of satisfactory quality. swirl bars do not just drop off in a month, there are earlier indications. speak to consumer direct or go to this link http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Governme...ghts/DG_183047

    they trying to fob you off by offering the cheapest way in the hope you accept it.
