    Default VXR 19in Alloy Rim Failures

    I am currently the proud owner of a Vectra VXR fitted with 19in type H3 rims.
    During the last 12 months i have suffered 4 rim failures (2 cracked & 2 buckled).
    A detailed inspection of the cracked rims identified that they were poor quality castings (full of porosity).
    Vauxhall replaced the initial 2 rims under warranty but have subsequently declined further assistance.
    Vauxhall claim that they have no other records of similar such failures.
    Has anybody else experienced similar problems ?

    Complete tosh! More info here - http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=33543 - with a link to a thread on a VXR owners forum where people have had the same issue, so Vx know fine well there's an issue as I bet those owners have been onto Vx as well.
