    TBH, it's just a few cars...it's not major failings of the auto box cooling systems..Just get a warranty as some form of cover in case anything nasty does happen.. but don't worry too much..

    Hello Mr Alien.

    Yes, mine has had this git of a problem.. however, they tell me it's all fixed now... (I'll let you know when I pick it up tomorrow)

    One of the most important things I have learnt from this Vauxhall "experience" is get a code reader for your car. You can go into any garage and give them some idea of what the problem is even if you cannot fix it yourself.
    They are worth their weight in gold.
    Seriously!

    Still mine come back from the stealers tomorrow so looking forward to getting it back!!

    Cheers.

    Matt

    You cant get any better than a Netty Q warranty, you will be ok there, if you get the chance try and extend it before the year is up.

    Hello,

    A code reader plugs into the Dataport on the car. (don't worry, you can't re-program anything with it)
    But what it does do, is list in order, the fault codes and what they relate to.
    You then take that code then post politely on here, or take it to the garage, and they kind of have a head start.
    So then you know whether the Gearbox has fallen apart or just the MAS needs replacing.
    It's very handy to have and is always in the boot of my Veccy.
    You want one that does CAN-BUS (Up to a certain date I THINK), though there are a few posts about code readers on here, some of which I'm involved in.
    If you have steering wheel controls, and they are 6 buttons (3 on each side) then it's a CAN-BUS compatible reader you need (I think) if it's the one with the jog wheel it's something else... I don't know what though.

    But doing a search on here will point you in the right direction.

    Cheers

    Matt

    PS. There are LOADS on EBAY...
