    Courtesy Cars

    Just wondering when any of you take your car into VX to have something done, how many times have you actually been provided with a courtesy car?

    Ive had two Astras and now on my third. All the Astras put together, I think must have been back to Vx about 10-15 times at a guess. I only recall having a courtesy car 'once'. That was when they kept my first GSi for three days.

    What about the rest of you?

    you usually have to book you car in when a courtesy car is available, rather than expect one all the time.
