    Default Rubbish MPG And The Secret Menu

    The car has been to the dealers for a new rear screen under VX warranty as some of the elements have failed. It has really gone in to sort out the mpg issue which is intermittent. Sometimes I get 22mpg at 70 in 5th and sometimes i get 45ishmpg, at tickover I use 1gal/hr with no increase in revs as opposed to 0.2. I also have this problem with the steering where sometimes it fels like the power steering has failed for a moment but no warning lights and pulls to one side.

    When the mpg issue plays up, I take a picture of the screen so I have a record of when it happens. Scary how long it was for the last week. I also printed a couple of pictures of the secret menu screen with fuel delivery to the injectors before and after a re-set. It only took the dealer 5 hours to find it and then VX technical at Luton don't know anything about it. WHO implemented it then, intresting.

    Anyway they still don't know what is wrong and have now asked VX technical if they can send the car to Luton, what a cop out, and I'm stuck with a 1.3 diesel Corsa SX+, me thinks I may as for a different car as I do around 1000 miles a week.

    Watch this tread for further developments

    hiya ! Name is Dave.....I have problems with my Vectra C and Paintwork etc etc....However I also have a problem with Power steering !! On two seperate occasions and under different driving conditions my steering has gone STIFF(virtualy locked) to say the least and then corrected itself !! Once on a slow reverse turn, and once at 40+mph !!! It scared me silly and then corrected itself ! I had and have NO warning lights on the dash or the matrix display on either occasion !!
    I have a meeting with the Area engineer on friday 10th Nov at the dealers ! Can we help each other out here?? I have a case number for my complaints but would dearly like to see the engineer with a referance to another similar complaint !! I tried to PM You but as a newbie I dont seem to have that facility on the site as yet??
    kind Regards
    Dave.

    In your handbook it states you should have a Vectra mate. If it goes away for more than 48 hours
