    Default Absolutely unbelievable...

    Hi peoples, long time since I been on here but most of the old hands know me, anyways I am so damned annoyed, I had a new timing chain at 15978 miles and last saturday at 30111 mile the sodding thing gone again. costing another £900 and vauxhall UK dont even want to know, this car is now on its 3rd timing chain since new, how bad is that so, getting it repaired and seriously thinking of getting shot now. If anyone wants to make me any offers then feel free, it will be in the for sale section when i get it back Thursday / Friday...

    My english is not that good, but timing chain? Perhaps an petrol 2.2?

    But 3 chains within 30k miles .... that is real bad luck ... hopefully from now on you can this one or a new Vectra ....

    Good luck and regards,

    Aad ~ Doix
