Ah, christmas ruined by the car!!!!
When travelling down to London on Xmas eve, my car started to lose power and judder, like a misfire. Then at just over 70mph the car juddered and slowed down to just under 30mph. Not a good move on the outside lane of the M1 on xmas eve.
Anyway, managed to get to the nearest service station doing 30 mph and called the AA. AA man could not detect any fault codes and could not fix the car.
So £500 later and a transporter, I ended up where I started from 12 hours earlier. (VX only give roadside assistance after the 1st year and you cannot upgrade to relay)
Pretty pi**ed off with VX as the car had a new turbo, manifold, swirl valve fitted just over 3 weeks ago to cure the same fault. Erratic idling, loss of power under 2000 rpm and turbo kicking in but not doing anything.
To say I am angry is an understatement, this engine is a joke. The VX technicians have not got a clue what to do with it, they just changed a few parts and hoped for the best.
Not much I can do at the moment as the dealers are on holiday. Just wait until they reopen.
Merry Christmas VX
