    does anyone here know if VX have been having issues with clutches in the insignia range?

    the car has done 3000 miles and the clutch is badley slipping in second gear under heavy acceleration.

    I have the SRI 2.0T, has been spot on before and after my remap. Not heard of any other reports. Get it back to the dealer mate.

        I've done just under 1000 miles in mine and as yet had no problems.

          I had one for ten months and never had a single problem with it...I miss the insignia and will probably get another one early next year. You can't beat the ride comfort and that massive boot In a vxr corsa at the moment so it's a huge difference

                There have been some rumours of clutches going after a remap due to too much boost at low revs

                Unless I guess someone can come on and say its them it will stay rumour, mine has slipped a bit once after I rode it a bit in traffic the other day but I think any car would if you got the clutch hot enough

                    Thats not normal the clutch face should be dry. u might get some clutch dust. Is this on a Insignia VXR? or the Astra in your sig?

                        I have been driving for 47 years and driven most types of cars. I have always treated my vehicles with respect. Broke down on the road and the RAC guy informed me that the clutch had burnt out. Never have I burnt out a clutch. At 3886 miles this seems absurd. Towed to the local Vauxhall Dealership who stated that, unless a mechanical fault can be proven, the repair will be my responsibility. Is this reasonable? Has anyone else had a similar problem? Is it possible that the clutch assembly was frozen during the recent cold spell? Any advice would be really appreciated.

                          im hoping this is just the normal procedure with rules on warrenty and modifying cars tightens up. In your case it appears you have alot of experience on your side and i hope that common sense prevails
