    Angry Can i take a hammer to my vectra!!!

    At this precise moment in time, yes I could. Hubby has just gone to go on his yearly fishing trip with the lads and the ****** car won't start. Jump started it and (no powered steering, no dashboard working at all, no radio working).

    Totally naffed off and just feel like beating the crap out of it.

    Sorry, this is a rant.

    Dont buy from them, chances are the battery will be fine once the Alternator is replaced.

    Battery test - Bad Cell, Replace, volts only 9. Charge rate only 10.6 volts

    Also it is the original GM battery from when the car was first built.

    I wouldn't buy anything from the AA. I am going to leave it well alone this weekend and think about something else. Absolutely fed up, bonus though, the chap from the garage said I probably won't need a battery just an alternator.

    Will be sorted next week sometime. Very costly though.

    of course you dont need a new battery, the alternator isnt charging it correctly therefore its low on power. 5 year guarantee on most batterys, so yours is probably under guarantee as well!
