    Default Gearbox

    Hi All,

    Hope you had a great break and happy new year to you all, i woke up Christmas day to find my gearbox oil all over the road (Not Good). I thought the seal on the drive shaft had gone. had to wait 4 days then towed in to the vauxhall garage local to me, turns out the gearbox had collapsed completly and needed new one. the garage did all this for me and then told me it was under warranty (WOOOPEEEE)

    After all my moaning about how it drives it now drives like a dream.

    Cheers

    Default gearbox!

    Bad luck with the gearbox! I had a new one fitted 3000 miles ago after much insistence of a problem. It is now starting to rev wildly and change erratically and jerkily again. I only have 32k on the clock and the dealer still thinks that there is nothing wrong with it. I am currently trying to return the vehicle to Vx because it has been off the road 5 times in the last 12 months; a total of 7 weeks with various problems. They are pretending to be deaf and stupid at the moment, but I would advise anybody who has a jerky or erratic autobox to handle the matter as firmly as necessary because Vx DO know that there are problems with these boxes and are trying to fob customers off until the warranty period expires.

    I have had 5 Vauxhalls now and after a whole year of arguing with the dealer over problems which they were reluctant to investigate, this pile of junk is my last.

    I would recommend that anybody thinking of buying an auto Vectra go immediately to a psyciatric specialist!
