    not sure if this helps

    my mate has hit a curb in his car and was getting wear on half of his front tyre Vauxhall 4 times said there was nothing wrong then when he decided to take it to a local small time mechanic he just put a spirit level on to the strut and it was clear wot the problem was so back to Vauxhall with it he showed them and they still said there was not prob with the car. if you stand above the tyre looking down does it stick out of the arch more than the other side cause it was really noticeable on his car it was out buy about 3 inch! and Vauxhall said there was nothing wrong even tho u could see it! it cost him 430 but it was under warranty as well. not sure if this helps hope u get it fixed soon mate.

    You could try a different Vauxhall dealer for a second opinion.

    If the car wasn't under warrenty and the repairs were being paid out of your pocket, you can bet your ass they would find loads wrong with your car.
