Well I've had an interesting few days. Aircon packed in over the weekend, so off to the stealers on Tuesday for a regassing. Driving around with the windows down I noticed my clutch was making a racket when pressed. So I asked them to look at that as well.
Early afternoon and I get a phone call from one of our fleet managers. Stealers are reporting a duff clutch, a duff flywheel and various other bits that need replacing, with a quote of £1,500. On a 25 month old car with 92k on the clock which is due off the fleet at 100k, they decided to bin it rather than authorise the repairs. So its gone! I've got a Mondeo as a replacement. Sorry.....
Has to be said that I have become increasingly disillusioned by VX. Shoddy dealers, poor build quality on both my Vectras, and on my last one a series of ever more serious faults. I haven't done that many miles in it - it shouldn't be collapsing like that!
Anyway, thanks for the help and advice over the last few years!
