Where Do I Start!!
Glove Box Lever came off.
Air conditioning radiator leaked (had to be replaced, but found a very nice NON - Vauxhall dealer who felt sorry seeing a grown man cry when they told me how much to replace)
Central Locking Very Suspect (IE I believe the car doesn't like my partner - Passenger Door jams nearly every time she gets in to the car - Now enters the car via drivers side or window) Dealer says "The car is six years old you know, they don't last forever"
Oil light has a mind of it's own.
Have a collection of plastic parts in my garage if anyone whats them - door handles, glovebox handles and other various trim parts.
Best of all!!
Major engine faliure.
Car had only done 78000 miles and the crankshaft gave up the ghost.
Vauxhall wanted to pull my pants down because they wanted a mere £3000.00 for the engine alone and at least 28 hours labour to fit (At the rate of the national debt of a small country per hour plus VAT) This did make me cry!!! -but what do you do - You find a small garage that claims it will only cost £1100.00 but guess what - They pulled my pants down, ended up costing £3200.00 - Still Cheaper than Vauxhall less the small national debt of course.
I now fear the phone ringing at work and they tell me Cheryl's on the phone -NOW WHAT & HOW MUCH!!
Still the kids think it's great that daddy swears at the car.
I think I was unlucky with this car as I'm on first name terms with AA (I think they will refuse my membership next year)
Overall I think this particular car is a Friday afternoon car & I was unlucky.
Fuel economy is not great, but then what do you expect from 2.5 V6.
It is very comfortable to drive.
Very spacious even with three kids.
I Must confess that it very pleasing leaving the boy racers at the lights when in sports mode.
