    Default Bl**dy Vauxhall

    My Signum has been in the local dealer all day after the suspension creaking.

    They have diagnosed it as shot Shock absorbers. Vx have been contacted and they are refusing to replace them under warranty!!




    The car has done 49k miles and I have never had this problem with any car before. They have quatoed me £250 to sort it out with Vx parts (which frankly, appear to be Cr@p!)

    What options do I have?

    Do I have a case with Vx UK to get them sorted, if not what do you lot recommend??

    spray the shocks with lithium grease to stop them creaking.

    Been quoted £250 for 2 shocks and fitting by Vx - thats outrageous in my opinion.

    Are there any other options for now?? £400 is a bit steep at the moment

    VX wanted over £700 to replace my front shocks

    They have you over a barrel mate. Look at page 46 of your booklet, it basically says ****** all is covered after 12 months.

    I had the same issue with VX themselves, to the point where customer services said they wont be replying to emails or taking anymore calls from me.

    I've was told soon after my a mechanic mate of mine that 40k is not a bad life span for a set of shocks, i dunno though.

    My advise? ****** them. Get upgrades. Thats what i did, almost garenteed to last longer and perform better.
