    Unhappy New coil pack?

    Guys,

    Have just been told that after taking my Astra to the local Vauxhall dealer with probs that it needs a new coil pack (total cost £189).

    Is this something that should be failing on a 51 plate 1.6 Sxi with 38000 miles or should I be querying this..? - Only 5 months out of warranty grrrrr

    Cheers,

    Am from near Walsall, West Midlands.
    ...afraid I wimped out and had the work done. It was pretty ropey getting there & I didn't want to risk it and wait. Annoyingly there was no mechanic avail when I picked it up so I couldn't ask any questions. The lady behind the desk said that it wasn't something she'd come across much and suggested that I could try Vaux customer services and see if they'd make a goodwill payment... don't know what they deem as a good life for a coil pack though...?
