    Door handle

    Am not happy at the mooo, took my g to vauxhall cos my passenger door handle stopped working!!!!! dont ask way i dunno..... but vaux said if its a componate fault it would be covered under warrenty so i thought cool.....
    droped the car of at 11am, come back at 3pm ok i said....... get there at 3pm thats £68 Arhh why, its been removed to be colour coded.... no it was already done.....next it was its been removed to have the lock took out...... no i said passenger doors dont have locks..... he went away.....10 mins later he came back ok sir it will be covered under warrenty...... i smiled and thought great..... only to go out side and find the door handle works but not properly the handle stays out once you pull it to open the door and dont sit flush when you push it back in....... so i go back to the desk and am told the handle is broken but they repaired to there best but still say its been removed and that its not technacially cover by warranty cos a door handle is comes under trim not covered by warrenty on 2nd and 3rd year...... i give up....... so much grief it just aint worth it......
    i should have just gone to rj`s which is where im going tomorrow cos they never let me down and always there to help....... if i could swear it would be F*** U V***........sorry guys.......

    I'd say a door handle comes under security, rather than trim. And it's essential to usinf a car to be able to get in the first place.

    My local dealer took 3 hours to fit a new clip in the head rest sleeve before I was told "we can't get the head rest out cos the clip is missing".

    I ended up showing them how to do with 2 small screwdrivers - time taken was approx 1 mimute.

    ****wits :roll: :roll:

    Warrenties are more hassle than they are worth. I had major dilemma just getting mudflaps fitted to my Gsi. They first fitted coupe ones which were wrong. In doing so they cut the arch liners and so they replaced them with new liners and fitted to correct flaps and now it has to go back for paint damaged when they fitted the arch liners. I dread to think what will happen when they replace the cam cover gasket and another gasket on the turbo soon.
