  • The Joys of Motoring

    After my boat load of good luck (not) that I've had lately with my car (see my previous threads) today brought a new issue!! Got in my car this afternoon, pulled my door shut and it bounced back open... Thought I'd maybe trapped my seatbelt for some odd reason so double checked nowt was stopping it from closing, tried it again... door wouldn't shut After me messing on with it for 5mins and checking passenger door I then decided it was shafted and I couldn't move my car.

    Had it recovered to my local dealership, got it off the back of the recovery vehicle, got out the car, pushed the door shut.. and what happens?! It clicked shut like it should've!!!! Couldn't believe it... but then I had to move it round the back of the garage n when I got out of it that time, the door was broke again lol

    I left it with them at 2pm, by 3pm I had a call to say they'd looked at it and they'd ordered the new part and I should have my car back by tomorrow. So pretty happy with that service (Apart from not having a courtesy car, but in fairness, it wasn't like I'd booked in).

    So fingers crossed I get it back tomorrow with a new... working... locking mechanism!!

            Not being funny but just hope this is another random issue on a random vehicle. Otherwise, VX should look into it as this is DANGEROUS!

              Well, I got a call from the dealship today to say that there was a back order of the lock that needs replacing on my car and they had no idea how long it would take for that part to turn up So I'm now sat there thinking how am I going to get around for work (I'm a field based engineer!) without a car... no sooner had that thought passed through my head, I was told they were organising a hire car for me from a private hire car company and having it delivered to my door for me.

              So in less than 24 hours of dropping my car off, it was diagnosed and I was called within 1 hour to be told they had no part in stock and needed to order one. 11am this morning I was told there was a back order however a car was being delivered to me at 1pm.

              Astounded at the service from the dealer is all I can say lol Makes such a nice change to not get grief from the dealers when you go in with genuine problems!!

              So I'm mincing about in a 1.6 SXi Sporthatch at the minute lol bit slower than the VXR but a set of wheels to get me about!

                              I hope you're following the usual courtesy car rules - Flog it to death! lol. I know what you mean, when I had my Type R I got a 1.2 corsa I think it was, was terrible!

                              Hope u get your's back soon and fixed first time!!
