To cut a long story short. Car gets a flat tyre. Get bus home.
Called out AA via Vx cover the next morning. AA man discovers that locking wheel nut key missing, and he cannot take locking wheel nut off. Called Vx to get new key, and they can't order a new key until the 3rd, with a 7-10 wait time for delivery.
Next day, call out AA for recovery to Vx. Dealer stacked up solid, say they can't touch the car till next Wednesday.
Car sitting at Vx. Not even a courtesy car available!
The issue I have is that Vx serviced the car in Sep 05. As far as I know, the key was in the glovebox prior to service.
Now I know to check the car over completely after any trip to dealer. Annoying, as that's their job, isn't it?
