  • !!! Rant Alert !!!

    Just taken my Astra to the stealers to have the recall work done for the manifold studs. It was booked in for tomorrow but they asked me if i'd drop it off the night before so that the engine was cool for them to work on.

    I was walking from the car to reception and witnessed a Techie wheel spinning a Corsa B into the workshop. This doesn't fill me with a warm fuzzy feeling!

    Got to the reception desk only to be told that they didn't have a courtesy car for me. Do they expect me to walk home and to work in the morning?!?!

    The receptionist asked me if i'd like to book it in for Friday instead as they'd definately have a car then. She then asked my age. I tell her i'm 23. Cue sharp intake of breath. Apparently their insurance doesn't cover anybody under 25. I have to bite my tongue at this point... I've just driven there in an Astra VXR and they're scared to lend me a 1.slow Corsa.

    I tell her that i'll take it to another dealer because they've been lending me cars, on their insurance since i was 17. She goes off to speak to the gaffer and hey-presto, they'll lend me a car... Albeit with a 1k excess.

    On my way back to the car, another Techie is returning from a 'road test' in a Corsa C, giving it absolute death! Needless to say i won't be returning in a hurry!

    Classic vauxhall. They are useless in evey way. I wil never be buying another car from them. Every single trip ends in issues, **** ups and rudeness. You get what you pay for.

        Did you check your mileage......????
        Yours SHOULD NOT need a road test just for torque setting adjust on manifold, so if there is any mileage on it when you get it returned i would be asking BIG questions...!!!!!!!!!!

          Will be doing. You'd have thought that the Techies would act a bit more sensibly when the customers are watching!

                daz its new studs and nuts not just a tighten up and if the studs play up could end up with manifold off.
