    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Was it anything like the one I received a few months ago that I posted about here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=133164 (picture of the letter on page 2). If so I think the general concensus was if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    I tend to agree with Deztroyer - since the car came out of warranty I've
    done my own servicing (with the great help of this forum) and obviously
    the stealer's records have flagged this. So get him back under some pretence - have a nosy round the car and then scare him with 'essential safety work' that needs doing !

    I think the give-away is this 'As part of this programme we will also carry
    out a free vehicle health check'

    The dealer is loosing my respect and will be lower down on my list
    of targets when I replace my current motor - these clever marketing
    guys sometimes really shoot themsleves in the foot !

    So I'm just going to sit tight - if it's essential they'll get back to me...
