Well i took the Vec for it's 40k service today at the main stealers (£240) at 08:30 this morning and they said it would be ready at 12:00 - Good i thought and then drove off in thier courtesy car (Corsa 1.2 sooooo slow even to 30mph).
Anyway, when they eventually rang me at 16:15 this afternoon i went to pick it up.
The receptionist said 'oh you had it serviced too' I said ???? thats all it was brought in for.
There has been no problem with the car at all, so i was questioning.
Apparantly, after they had serviced it (Strange that isn't it?), the EML was on. So they replaced the EGR valve and the alternator, as apparantly the voltage was low on the car and the valve had a fault code (all under warrantee of course)
But it did seem a little more pokey after i got it back (and feel alot bigger to the Corsa) Although i think the pokiness may be because of driving the Corsa all day instead - there does seem to be a noticable difference.
So all in all i think it was a good service I just hope they have put stuff back correctly! Already had to put all the pipes and cables in the engine bay back into their clips (as they hadn't) and clean all the oil off the engine cover, that they had spilled! etc etc.
I think that where i am going with this thread is that the 'cough' mechanics have no pride in their work anymore and rush to get it done. Anyway, i'll be paraniod for the next week that something is going to fall off or fail
Oh.... And they washed the car!!!! Against my instructions
