        i paid extra for an extended warranty when i bought the car.vauxhalls said if wotever the fault with the clutch isnt covered i will be liable for the removal and refitting of the gearbox............ £459. are they having a laugh.and not entitled to a courtesey car until they find out wots wrong with it

                  today got a phone call from vauxhalls to say the clutch has worn and caused flywheel to overheat and that its not covered on the warranty even tho its only done 24k....WTF.more like vauxhall are robbing ******** and obviously the clutches and gearboxes in the zafira vxr's aint man enough to last.quoted me £1160 for clutch and flywheel plus the £459 for refitting the gearbox.I WILL NOT BE BUYING A VAUXHALL EVER AGAIN
