Was getting ready for work this morning and was watching any old rubbish, when they started mentioning Vauxhall and that this women had brought a diesel zafira, she had the same problem every 11 months with the same part.
Can you guess what part on a diesel............ yeah that's right the good old EGR valve. First time she had it replaced under warranty but after that she had to pay for the repairs, at one point she was charge £971 god knows what was replaced, so every year the same fault happens and vauxhall tell her its the EGR, this went on for 4 years, vauxhall even told her it was the way she was driving that caused the problem. In the end with her making complaints and reporting vauxhall they offered to replace her engine but she had to pay 10% towards it (£391) to their credit they also refunded her the £971. The program even interviewed the AA and they said the increase in EGR related calls has gone up.
