I bought my 53plate 2.2 Elite not long ago, can't be a month now, with 34K miles on the clock. All was going swimmingly until monday and it lost drive as I was going to overtake the truck i'd been following up the 616, pulled over and let it settle itself and it was fine. Until wednesday, when just about to turn up a side road in Sheffield and it happened again, limped to the side of the road, let it settle then continued driving albeit gingerly, called my local Vx garage and they said bring it in and show us the Fault!!! . And then on Thursday evening coming home it happened again but it showed me the service light.
Straight onto Vauxhall Assist (AA/Network Q thingie) and they led me home (about 300metres) and then recovered the car to Pentagon Friday morning.
Now they say the gearbox has collapsed, and 4 or 5 major items require replacement. I'm not interested in how much its going to cost as as far as I'm concerned the gearbox is a major item and should be covered under the network Q warrenty they gave me. But I have yet to get an answer out of them as to;
What has collapsed? Whats likely to have caused it? Will it happen again? and What on earth are the 4 or 5 major items that need replacing?
Can anyone shed any light for me? They've given me a 56 reg 1.9 CDTi (150) until tomorrow (soo much turbo lag, how do people put up with it?), but they can't tell me whether they'll be able to supply me with a car whilst they are fixing mine, if indeed Network Q will fix it.
