    Default Finally in a VXR

    And so it begins 😀



    Or at least it does when Vauxhall have finished checking the gearbox out! Want to make sure the car is perfect before I do anything that might void the warranty

    Looks cool mate.

    I look forward to seeing what you do with it, maybe some more vinyl goodness, was good to meet you at trax, will you be putting the modified headlights on it from your other one?

    Well, the car is currently sitting with Vauxhall for a gearbox diagnosis/repair. It had a weird whining noise in 1st, 2nd and some of 3rd (especially noticable at low revs) which made a noise like reverse gear.

    So far they've had some to and fro between the franchise dealership and Vauxhall themselves to perform various checks. Obviously no modifications found, correct type and level of gearbox oil, no metallic swarf, BUT they did find excessive play between each of the gears.

    They've quoted me £440 for removal and inspection of the gearbox which apparently VX will pick up the tab on if it's done under warranty (still under the manufacturer's one, which I didn't realise. I thought it was NetworkQ) but if it's not then I'm likely going to return the car as not fit for purpose which gives them 2 choices.

    1. VX Pay for the warranty work, I drive away and modify the hell out of the car thus voiding any future warranty and keeping me out of their hair
    2. VX refuse to pay for the warranty work, and I return the car within the first 30 days of sale, they're forced to rectify the fault to resell it and give me back what I've paid, then try and sell the car on with 3 owners on the book instead of the current 2.

    I'd like to think I know which one they'd pick, but I'm waiting to hear back with their decision on the warranty fix before I make any sort of proposal of that nature.
