    Cars just been into the garage

    Just got the car back after i complained to the local retailer about a banging noise from the back end when i went over a speed bump.

    They tested it and said the back suspension was ok but noticed a noise from the front end so inspected the suspension.

    The suspension has collected a load of stones from my street as it got resurfaced with that stone crap bout 3 month ago and there still flying up in the air.

    But as its not vauxhalls fault it wasnt covered on the warranty i have to pay the cost which was only £56 but its an unneccesary cost.

    what chance have i got to get my money back and all the stone chips on the front end repaired by the council with proof that its the councils fault my car had to go into the garage ?

    that will be hard to convince them about the stone chips as they could of come from anywher at anytime i would expect them to say but you may have a case wth the it having to go into vx as you could get send them the work sheet from your car explaining what the fault was.

    Also.. when there is loose chippings normally they say max 20mph... So if your doing twenty and keeping the 'recommended' distance from car infront you shouldn't have got any chips...

    "You" - I want u to pay my fees cos the road u relaid has damaged my paintwork etc

    "Council" - Ok we wont relay any roads, but dont come crying when your dodging potholes and then damaging more expensive parts.


    Ok that was sarcasm but u see my point.

    if they relay the roads it wouldn't be a problem. The fact is they only resurface them, which does a very poor job + means there are stones flying everywhere for 3+ weeks.
