                  iam going to set fire to this car carnt be bothered now getting this fixed its a joke,really going to think about getting rid of this car now,this is the story so far,
                  i buy a brand new 57 plate arden blue astra vxr,on the way home from the garage i smell oil burning,take it back and after 8 attempts at fixing it ,turbo,oil pipes,reviseded pipe work gaskets etc i call it a day with this car,i did 500 miles in 3 months and the garage did 800 miles trying to fix it,so 3 months after buying it new 1300 miles,iam that peeve d off now i trade it for a berg from astons,6 months later it turns up. after i had already given astons my car 6 months before,and gess what,the wrong ******* spec,anyhow after a load of bull from astons telling me they cannot get me another with the spec i orderd i finally take the car,aweek later,needs a new turbo,another week later,oil leek from turbo oil pipe,then finally astons out the blue get another berg with my spec in that i orderd,after alot of phone calls i finally get them to change it,now this one its had its re-call,an oil leek fixed from the turbo,and now the ******* turbo has gone,the question iam now going to ask is can vauxhall make a car thats not going to be ****** with the first couple of months as at present ive spent £65000k in cash and iam no better off than the first load of junk i bought from them,as you can see i am really peeved off now

                    sorry to hear you having so much bad luck, had mine for 2 months now and done 3500 miles with no problems what so ever, well the garage got the spec wrong but they sorted that. I am sure things will get sorted, how hard do you drive your cars? are they mapped?

                        Oh dear i do think you are just very unlucky Hoggy to be honest...I think if you look at percentages of good vs bad it must only be 1% but you have had them all.. Admittedly you,ve had terrible luck.
