    Thumbs Down Local Vauxhall dealer does it again lol

    My friends Mk4 GSI started running really ruff and kept stalling etc etc.

    He took it Vauxhall for a tech 2 and check over and to see if he could claim on his AA warrenty.

    Vauxhall had it all day 8 - 5.30 and all they could say is that it was over fuelling and then running really lean. They blamed the dump valve or boost gauge LOL.

    He bought it round to me as some know I have broke many turbo'd cars and wee took of the baileys off thinking it might be sticking open.

    Went to go for a test run and as soon as he went to pull off, big boost leak and car nearly stalls. get him to try once more and stright away I say that is your bottom turbo hose.

    We jack it up to get are heads under there and in plain view there is a 2" split in the hose, sticks out a mile.

    He is going to Vauxhall today to ask for his money back because they had all day and didnt even check the car over and someone like me finds it stright away with no Vauxhall training LMFAO

    Tell your mate to find a decent garage. I've had a similar experience from a vaux garage from just down the road (1/2 mile away from my house). I now take it 15 miles away to a proper garage where I'm treated like a guest rather than a customer and they bend over backwards to help you. There service has always been impeccable and even cleaned my car after it had a warranty EGR valve done. That what I call service.
    Its a jam thing

    Is that the one in Fareham? Some of my family have had probs there.

    I've started going to Picador in Chandlers Ford as I've had loads of recommendations for them. Took the car there for the first time the other week and was impressed. Much more friendly than the alternative in the centre of Southampton!

    I took my coupe in to my local vxl dealership to have the window regulator replaced (under warranty) in the passenger door and they ended up smashing the window and wrecking my passenger seat! They also managed to lose 2 (Yes 2) security key cards for my car!

    Wont let VXL near it now, got a mate who use to work on the WRC escort cosworths who services it now
