    Import Advice Needed Please

    Hi

    Im in the middle of a dispute at the moment between Vauxhall UK and myself.

    They are saying my car is an Opel Cypriot but when i bought the car its got Vauxhall everything.

    When cars are imported do they have an import certificate? If so am i by law allowed to have a copy of this?

    I have also rang the DVLA this morning and they have told me they have no record of it being imported or it being an Opel im very confused.....please help!!!

    Thanks, Sarah

    I'm sure someone else had this problem on here, hopefully they may see this thread. I 'think' it came down to the car being made abroad for sale in the UK possibly, but I can't remember - what age is the car?

    Its 2006.

    My plan is to find out when it was apparently registered in Cyprus. Because if they say 22nd June 2006 thats when it was registered in the UK and someone has had the car before me. Ive had warranty work done on it but they are saying Opel has a 2 year warranty not 3 therefore ive got to pay for the warranty work!!!

    Vauxhall (and others) can tell where the car was built by the chassis number.

    The fact that it has everything changed to say vauxhall (which I presume you mean badges etc) means nothing. I could go and buy an opel today brand new, and change it all to Vauxhall.

    Whats the problem you are trying to get fixed under warranty ??

    Oh the works been done, it was the rear bush joints. But Greenhous are now trying claim it back from Vauxhall and Vauxhall are saying its an Opel and they only have 2 year warranty not 3.
