    Default Year 3 Service Report

    All,

    Following my previous post's regarding 3rd year service i received excellent customer care today at a local dealer (Sandbeck, Wetherby, nr Leeds). Technicians were excellent, took me in to workshops to show me a couple of faults which are covered in year 3 warranty.

    Rear door central locking motor failed, to be replaced foc.

    Tailgate struts leaking, to be replaced foc.

    One not covered is front o/s braked caliper clip missing, £20 to supply and fit.

    Rear brake light bulbs lost colour and were starting to show white, £2.83 fitted.

    Looking at the receipt though it doesn't list pollen & air filter supply. So it looks like year 3 on 2.2 dti only includes visual inspection and oil & filter replacement. Reprogramme via tech2.

    I have also asked the techy about the pitting that has occured on only one of the wheels the others are sound, he said we can raise it with VX but doesn't think they will cover it. Back in again next Monday for warranty work.

    Paul.

    They have also offered MOT for £25 in May. This dealer has really got their buts in to gear recently. More staff now better atmosphere and they are at last starting to price match and compete with non franchise dealers.

    That price for the bulb is good a friend of mine was charged £6.50 + VAT for his corsa when it went during the MOT test, the alternative was a retest under the new rules.
    Needless to say he won't be going to that dealer when he changes it, some of them will never learn will they, they penny pinch then end up losing customers
    SUPPORT THE FAIR DEALERS BOYCOTT THE RIP OFF MERCHANTS !!

    My neighbour was telling me about a friend of his (who has more money than sense) who needed to replace a couple of rear bulbs - on a Saab 95 I think (not 100%). It apparently involved a bit of trim removal on the inside - didn't seem to have the easy access like on the Vec/Signum - so he took it to the dealer. Dealer took 45 minutes to do it and charged him £70 for the privilage!!!!! For TWO bulbs to be changed!!
