    Default not happy.....

    just found out i need new rear discs and pads for my less than 1 year old vectra with 19k on the clock, heres my orignal thread outlining the problem http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67309 took the car to local stealers not covered by warranty, they want £188 to repair, now ive gotta take car back to arnold clarke cos they want to look at the car themselves cos they will not take vauxs word for it, when they should have checked the car themselves before i picked it up. only prob is, i cant get to arnold clake till a week on sat so driving around on dodgy brakes or shall i just get them fixed before then and argue the toss with arnold clarke afterwards ? rapid fit quoted £125 all in, gen vaux parts which i think is quite reasonable

    Its up to you, but i would try and get back to Arnold Clarke. If you only just bought it they have not sold you a car fit for purpose and very dangerous.

    If you get the stealers to do it Arnold might not pay up, or unless you take some pics and get the stealers to write a letter and keep the parts that are taken off. Phone Arnold to see if they will except that pics and letter.
    Good luck with your fix.

    A PITA but Vec C's do eat rear brakes for some reason. There's plenty of other ppl on here who have had to change rears at around 20k and less.

    How badly do they need doing?
