    F*****N Dealers

    Took my car 40 miles this morning to my nearest dealer to get a noise looked at, turns out the roller for either the water pump or timing belt has a shagged bearing.

    When i booked it in on friday i told them i was travelling and would need a car if it wasnt fixed on the same day!

    They didnt have any cars so i had to get the bus back ! best yet to come there was no bus for two hours !!! lol


    What a Day

    I think you'll find that you have to book well in advance to get a courtesay car.

    Not ideal...but can you imagine how many courtesay cars a dealer would have to have to keep everyone happy.
