    Vehicle : vectra vxr

    Trim : vxr

    Engine : 2.8 v6 turbo

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 31000

    Default My Vxr is in the garage not happy

    not happy tonight as the vxr is in the garage ever since I bought the car the climate control wouldn't go ice cold so I thought it was just needing gassed but the garage says there's a leak in the system somewhere!. so they will need to take the front bumper of and see what the problem is so they are having to keep it in over night as they ran out of time today. i have a fraud focus as a courtesy car haven't a clue what engine is in it but its gutless and i couldn't live with its poor all round visibility and the horrible jutting out dash. but have to say it is a very comfortable drive otherwise.

    They need to put a floro dye into the system and then can find the leaks.
