    Default Unimpressed with Vx

    My first ever venture into the world of Vauxhall is not going well. I was over the moon at finding a nice Vectra with low mileage at a good price. I picked the car up three weeks ago and it that time it has been looked at by three different Vx garages and has been either out of my position or off road for a total of 6 days (seven by tomorrow). The car has now been condemned as unsafe until the gear box if fixed (the car now only has 12,000 on the clock and is 18 months old). Great start.

    Then I get an í06 Corsa courtesy car with 5,000 miles. On two occasions today the airbag warning light has come on Ė and stayed on. Smashing. Iíve only ever driven two Vauxhalls (my Vectra and this Corsa) and both have problems. Thatís a 100% failure rate. Fine, itís not a true representative sample but Iím extremely unimpressed with Vx (and just donít get me started on their dealerships and customer care line). Within the last six years Iíve had two MGís (ZR & ZS), a Rover 25, three Citroens (two Picassos and a C2, two VWís (both Golfs) and a Suzuki (new Swift) and apart form a recall on one of the Picassos and a drunk Taxi driver destroying the Swift - bye bye little one Iíve never had to take a car to the garage for anything other than a service.

    So is this normal for Vx cars? When it works the Vectra is amazing which is the really sad thing. Just have to ask myself, what's next?

    trust me..it's not normal... i've had vauxhalls of all kinds for the last 16 years..and none of them have been giving trouble like you've been getting..

    New corsa..not thanks anyway.. just throw it back to them and as them for a like-for-like replacement on the vec..see if they shift you into something better....

    And VX wonder why they get a bad rep...it's all down to bad dealers

    Question

    Not that I am any sort of Car Buff, but its my own opinion that too many costs have been cut somewhere in GM ......and standards have dropped...Both in production and customer care......

    Must admit,very unimpressed with my VX dealership.Ok when buying my car,cant do enough,but when you have a prob its a whole different ballgame,my daughter has had the same experience. The car has been ok tho i must admit apart from a few probs which after joining this forum are common to the Vectra,i.e radiator bushes knocking and lights flickering when turning steering wheel.The first was done under warranty with no probs,the second i have had to live with Apart from that the car is great so dont give up yet,you may soon learn to love your Vec like the rest of us So give them dealers hell

    local vx dealer is a nightmare, 8 months ago was offered £5800 for an 04 veccy c 1.8ls that had not even reached its first service, went back to independant dealer who offered £7500 as trade in against £10999 car, vx dealer was offering his absurd price against ordering a new zafira, why do vauxhall dealers only employ people with surgical attachments of genitalia to their foreheads
