  • Help Please New VXR Owner

    Hey PpL

    Just bought a VXR everytime i turn right of left (or go around a roundabout) more the 30 MPH it feels like i'm going over loads of little bumps is this just something wearing in or is something wrong.

    Please Help..

    Sounds like buckled wheels or bearings. Was it new but either way get it back to a dealer and stupid thought just check the wheels are tight

      Have you checked to see if the travel chocks are out of the springs.

              Take a peek under the front wheelarch. The springs should be easily visible , if there is a 2 or 3 fingered block of plastic wedged into the spring pop round the dealer and ask them to take it out....then ask who PDi'd the car....

                  Vauxhall Man

                  Had a look last Night couldnt see anything in the springs. I told my uncle who works for Vauxhall...He took it for a test drive and now the bumps only come when you turn right!! So he thinks maybe something to do with the shock absorbers and i'm going to book it in for a check up 2moro. He said also because the supsenion is stiff and i have low pro tyres it may be something to do with that. But no other VXR has that problem..do they?

                              Still at the dealship

                              The Car is still at the dealship they are saying they dont know what the problems is. They said they are going to replace parts until the problem is solved!!!! Very annoyed. I have had my VXR since 4th August and i have only driven it for 6 days. I reject the car when i spoke 2 the branch manager. He asked me to give him a chance to fix it so they have two weeks or they said they will give me a full refund. But i also stated i wanted compensation. The most annoying thing is they said they couldnt insure me on a courtesy car as i am to young. And they would only offer me a corsa!!! Very annoyed and i am waiting to here about compensation. Anyone had a similar experience!?!?
