    Depending on how old the car is and the mileage you might still have a VX warranty

    Whats the year and month of manufacture?
    Whats the mileage?

    I also have a feeling the coolant leak is a known fault, maybe someone can confirm that via TIS?

    Also a few other things would help such as which engine do you have?

    It was mine mate Its a known fault with the crappy design of the plastic housing for EGR cooler, There is no way to fix it except replace part and your looking at near £800 to replace it as part is well over £400

    i think you have 3 years and 60k which ever is sooner so you might still have warranty left, what month?
    And yes even if you are the second owner you still will have VX warranty as it transfers to the new owner automatically

    +1 but even if its just outside warranty i would argue the case and get vauxhall to help with repair costs
