    That says it all then.

    I have had nothing but hassle from them Craig. I bought my Astra there (and Stewart's Vectra) and they mucked me around no end.

    Intermittent problem with my car not starting, they had it 4 times and kept denying there was a fault. Took it to another garage who said battery was dud. I had to write a stinking complaint to Vauxhall to get them to refund the cash i paid out as it was under warranty.

    Another occasion, the Vectra had a spilt engine mount and they the charge hand told me the noise was caused by the way i was lifting the clutch!!! I bad mouthed him in the letter too hence why i can never go back to Ian Grieves.

    well i garentee this will not lie as i aint paying £14k for a bloody car with a squeeky seat

    if i wanted a car with a squeeky seat i would have bought a £500 rover from the car market


    AHHHHHHHHHH these people do my head in. Quick enough to take your cash but not quick enough to fix the problem

    well knock me down he phoned :shock:

    not only that he couldnt have been any more helpfull and arse licking

    they will pick my car up on wed morning with the wagon and take it away for two days

    in those two days they will be re-painting the FULL front bumper

    they will either fix or replace the squeeky seat

    they will also be getting it onto the tech2 to hopefully solve my fuel problem

    so fingers crossed
