  • wat do i do?

    i bought my burg on sept 1st (58 plate) ive had no end of problems.

    the side skirts came away from the body work after a few week
    the seats sagged after a few week
    took it in to hunslet for repairs doing on a tuesday was told it would only be in for a day or 2 tops. rang up friday and they forgot they had it! oh and they forgot to tell me i was only insured for 1 day so i drove round for 3 days uninsured!
    got the car back, the seats looked great but wen i got in the mpg was on 14 and dropping! took the car home and had a good look at it. the skirts had been bodged back on with decal tape and the front light was dis-lodged and stood above the body work about 5mm.
    took the car in to horsforth for the manifold bolts doing and they fixed the light.
    1 month on- the car still smells of burning wen the heater is on,the side sills are coming off again,the seats are worse than before,the front light is so loose it rattles wen im driving( its just sat in place i can move it so easy i think i cud remove it with no tools) and ive rang/called in in person and they just keep fannying me off. wat shud i do? i love the car just so ****** off with the service and disrepair with the car im thinking of asking for my money back. ive rang vauxhalls head office and its not showing up that any warrenty work has been done.

    i would speak to vaux mate, sounds like very bad service, i would be going mental if that was my car buddy, its bloody brand new! i went **** when the car arrived with no cruise and no folding mirrors, but they sorted it in the end and also get my first service for nothing too.

              my mate who works for mitsubishi told me, he'd take the car back and tell them i want a new 1! they've made 0 effort to help me, the problems are not my fault. i ve never owned a new car before but im sure there not ment to be as poorly put together as this.are they?
