Here Goes, please bear with me. I bought a used 2.2dti design signum auto last year in september. I bought it as ive always found my vauxhalls to be reliable and relativly cheap to service. I was wrong. Since owning it i must have spent £2,000 on repairs not to mention weeks lost from work and car hire costs which must come to another £2,000! Ive had problems wioth the ECU, Auto gearbox going into limp mode, injector seals, turbo unit, sensors, Had complete Auto gearbox and cooling system refit (luckily as car is out of warrenty i kicked off at vuxhall and they did it on the arm!! however my vx dealer wanted to charge £5,000!!!! anyway...) and recently i took it back in becuase the gearbox (new) was making noises. They told me that it was in need of filling with oil (remember the gearbox is brand new and only fitted a month ago) for which they would charge me £250!!! again complained to vx they said nothing to do with them i had to complain to my dealer which i did and he said he'd do it for free. im getting to the suspension bit here now!!!! whilist it has been in for the autobox i askjed them to service it and MOT, which they did and told me i needed new springs on the front suuspension. These come in packs of two so both have to be replaced.... ok.... but then they told me they were on back order and would be about a week to get hold of. That was on the 23rd July. My car is still there still waiting. vauxhall say they can do nothing about it. My dealer says thay can do nothing about it. leaving me without a car for TWO MONTHS. paying car hire charges to get to work which i rely on a car. Has anyone else has similar problms with vauxhall and what can i do... please dont say nothing..... i must have some comeback to someone surely?
thanks for bearing with me!!!
