Thought I would update you on the latest 'happenings' with my Vectra!
What a nightmare!!!
So back in April I started getting this intermittent shaking at 2500rpm/6th Gear/80mph - Serious shaking! And loss of power - no fault codes and months on, still no resolution.
Dealer had the car for 12 days and found nothing - but managed to bring it back with a bloomin' great scratch on the front bumper and a squeaking steering wheel! Oh... and I have a problem with indicators keep cancelling too!
They had it back and got one of these mobile guys to repair the scratch and I now have a bumper a different colour to the rest of the car and full of tiny air bubbles!
On Friday I noticed the 'door open' warning light was on - checked the doors and still it stayed on. So when I left work on Friday I called the Dealer to let them know and suddenly everything - except the blooming light - stopped working!!
No dash functions/display at all!!
Spoke to them today - they have to replace the whole dash unit! But has this been caused by the juddering problem I am having??? Has it damaged circuitry?? They say not!
Well - in respect of the original fault - they have permission from Vauxhall to change the head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apparently they have had TWO other 1.9 (150's) with the juddering as a 'continual' fault - One has had a complete engine and the other has had the head replaced.
So with all the talk of Turbo problems as well on the forum - are there any other 'faults' I should be getting them to check for - bearing in mind the car has done less than 13.5k - I have really lost confidence in the car but with the initial depreciation I cannot afford to replace it and as my last new Vauxhall was as problem ridden, I want to make sure they sort out everything whilst still in warranty.
Appreciate your thoughts!
