    Default Advice on recalls

    appolagies if this seems a bit like feeding a baby here lol but anyway the vec is my first car and ive obviously found out about the few recalls on the vec

    my question is basicly how do i find out if theyve been done

    is it a quick phone call to local dealer? will they have records etc

    again sorry for my lack of knowledge

    the recalls are controlled by vauxhall and are regulated by vosa
    a call to your local dealership and give them your registration - they can quickly tell you
    1. any outstanding recalls
    2. any recalls completed

    no worries Shaun...

    as long as you stick with us on here - you wont go too far wrong the only problem hangig round with this lot is they find lots of things that cause you to part with your hard earned cash to make the most out of your beast

    enjoy your motor - i know i do mine

    I prefer keeping in my cars in "original" condition, since the SRI has just about everything I need
    The usual advice applies "buy the best spec car you can afford"
    I made the mistake many years ago of buying a "basic trim" model car, when I could have waited a month and had a "high trim" for just £500 more

    Replacing things like lower spoiler guard, radiator grilles, etc are all very easy
    I did consider the lower spoiler guard, but this is the only car on which I have managed to damage that area of the car, twice!
    Instead I am about to invest that money having the entire front of my car resprayed due to stonechip damage (which this car also seems very vulnerable to)
