    Angry I am offically jinxed

    in 2 years of having vauxhalls I have had nothing but trouble:

    Had a 53 plate corsa sxi and someone poured paint stripper all over it and someone kicked one of the wing mirrors off so thought it was just that car and got the astra about a year ago and now its been in 4 accidents in a year and only 1 was my fault...............

    1. My fault...clipped the car coming out my brothers gate and ripped the bumper and headlights off

    2. Was driving to work and someone jumped out in front of me, missed them but a lassie behind me went into the back of me @ 60mph

    3. My brother borrowed the car for 2 mins and a off road bike tried to undertake him and put a big dent in the wing.


    4. Today left my car outside my other brothers house and was driving his clio and someone while i was out has crashed into my front end, buggered my standard bumper and broke the fittings for the lights and they are all steamed up, must be a wee hairline crack letting the damp in

    Once i know whats happening with this new job im after im getting a non vauxhall, love them but they hate me
    Now has a clio - dont ban me

    I sympathise with you

    I know what you going through dude. I feel for you.
    I've got a similar dillema, I love my car, but Ive had it a year now and Im coming to the end of my teather-

    - the alarm packed in and went nuts all the time, immensly annoying and cost 100

    - stone got stuck in the cambelt, everything that could be damaged was £1000

    - 3 punctures

    - lock barrel ceized

    - crashed into a kerb and screwed my left skirt because I was trying to find a vauxhall dealer to buy a new key because my lock barrel ceized

    - In my local tesco the car is cursed, it will not lock or unlock must be signals in the area. I once got stuck for 2 hours with shopping because i couldnt get into the car

    - last week some retard decided to kick the hell out of my car so rear wings are damaged, drivers door dented, and my wing mirror has been completely smashed off. been quoted £800


    I love driving it, but I actually give up on it now. and theres n point selling it, now ive spent so damn much on it.
