    Vauxhall jacks are shit!!!!!!!

    Got a puncture around 9pm tonight so i pulled into the nearest BP and decided to change the wheel. I gets everything out of the boot and jacks up the car, takes off the punctured wheel and turned around to lift up the spare and the jack gave way. The whole car was on the deck, and at first i thought 'man its ****ed'. Lucky enough a geezer in the garage came over with a trolly jack and we got it back up and no damage was done. when i got the wheel on i took a look at the jack to see if it was my positioning of the jack or the jack its self. Lone behold the jack is gubbed. It dont work no more. So watch when ever using these things.

    F**k the jack, get a can of tyre weld in your car, best thing in the world.

    Don't believe the bullsh1t on it eating away at the inners of the tyre and one who says that is a liar, i had a tyre on a rim for 3 years with no prob's and it never went down.

    Buy some NOW.

    Deffo tyreweld. The lazy b'stards car jack. Never failed me. Just need to get the car to the tyreshop pretty soon afterwards, otherwise it'll dry off all through and really piss the tyre fitter off if he's trying to patch a tyre




    On second thoughts, leave it a few days

    You get three years AA cover with new Vauxhalls. Call 'em out for a puncture.
