    Constant Power Problems

    a friends car is coming up to 3year old and vaux has still not managed to fix the constant problems with power

    it's literally been in to vauxhall Every other week with the same comment there's nothing wrong with it. She is now waiting on her 3rd CAT!! as this one wont pass the MOT so she will be without a car till god know's when late june they reckon. They also want her to leave the car with them from when the MOT expired till when they get the new cat with her forking out £10 a day on Hire car cover at her expense.

    it's getting beyond a joke now she's love the Car but is falling out of love with it as she's afraid to over take in it just in case the turbo dont kick in & sh

    it's had the following fitted

    3x Actuator
    2x Cats (3rd on it's way)
    1x Rocker Cover
    1x turbo
    1x BCS
    1x Rec Valve
    1x Fly Wheel

    ECU has even been sent away for testing so they didnt have to pay out but it came back all clear

    going to pick the car up with her tomorrow so hoping to have sum ammo when i go in as i will be ringing Vauxhall Customer Care once i get all the paper work off them
