Over the last month, ive had to fork out for insurance, its first MOT, 2 new eagle F1's to pass the MOT, 12 months tax, and a service - plus needed a new waterpump, luckily replaced before warranty ran out!
As some of you know (Geoff), I had a stupid amount of hassle with vauxhall trying to get the traction control plate, after them reimbursing me the 4quid odd it cost me to get it off I still wasnt happy so followed up with a nice big letter of complaint....a few days later the Customer Services Mgr I had been dealing with called me to offer some further compensation....she started talking off vauxhall vouchers. I was expecting 10 or 15quid but she then asked if there was anything else i would prefer.....so being cheeky i said my car needs a service...she replied with no problem, we will pay for it!!
I was totally shocked! but today it had a nice free service and engine flush courtesy of vauxhall
So its a big wait of my shoulders, all over with for a good while yet......and I saved a good few quid in the process - cant fault it!
Moral of the story - complain, moan, and complain some more and you get something in the end!!
