    Default Vx Rant!!

    oh my god whata joke vx up here are, had on going issues with them with regards to my brakes clicking, exhaust leaking (from just before the flexy seam),went in today as i am sick of waiting to get it looked at let alone fixed, i need my car for taxiing so i canna really be driving around with these symtoms, so as i said went in to see them face to face as to why i am having to wait so long to be seen, i can understand they are busy but so am i and every day i mess about with them i lose dosh, i asked the guy to get it looked at sooner , i mean what would happen if it was hanging off , i could not get it repaired elsewhere as they are unsure if this is under warranty, the car is not a year old yet!!!! they said once looked at they would have to refer if to vauxhall direct as the car is not a year old yet ,,,,the brakes are still clicking and after being told from them that they werent vx pads even though i bought them from there they were adamant, so the guy checked the part num, they were so i asked what the probs was he said this is common with replacement pads!!! so i asked him why if they knew there was a prob they were still selling them ,he couldna answer, so i said i would refer this to trading standards his face dropped and i said they werent fit for purpose,, think i will change for audi there terrible, so the car is in on monday and thurs, this exhaust should be warranty on such a young car i mean if i have to replace it at these sort of intervals i might as well change car for a more durable one,,,the car was doing so well too and i was well happy now feel totally let down y there customer service

    Yeh his face would drop if your there kicking off and shouting about trading standards mate. I suppose a courtasy car isnt possible since it wouldnt have your taxi gear in it (or is that easy to swap from car to car?)

    Dont write the veccy off just yet mate, just think about how happy you will be when its all fixed and youve been given a free Imscher grille as compensation for your loss of earnings (hint hint)

    lol , if only ,i am just hacked off when they know about the clicking issues with there replacement brakes and continue to sell them, gota admit though they shouldnt be selling them if that is common, his face was a pic though, the irmisher grill would probably start clicking on mee car lol

    Anything is pretty much covered under warranty in the first year

    and BTW i would be writing to Vauxhall about this too and let them know what you are going to do if they can not provide better customer care.

    Your right and i bet you any money they are only selling these because they buy them cheap and then mark up the price and make a huge profit.

    Maybe mention that other Vectra owners are following the progress of this on a national forum, some of which live in your area and may have had the same pads fitted?
