    good vx dealers

    ok im looking for your recomendations for a good vauxhall dealer to take my car to for warantee work i need done. been in to my local dealer peter vardy in perth and there customer service is rubbish ive no end of trouble with them. so im looking for one resonably close to perth to have my rear suspension looked at and also a few other problems.

    its a mk5 with about 3-4 months left so want these things sorted before i have to fork out for it myself.

    What used to be premier vauxhall at sighthill Edinburgh have always been good and helpful with me. Think there Evens Halshaw now.
    Other dealer down seafield, more expensive and not very customer friendly.
    Bit of a treck to get work done though...

    After being in the trade for 20 years, ive learnt that everyone sees every dealer, business differently.
    Im sure others will say same.
    Atleast if u use local dealers etc its easier if any problems etc.
    Phone about... see how they are with you over the phone.
    Can often tell, helpful or fake....
    Get a few numbers, explain ur situation and see how they respond.
    Many will tell u that u need extra work done, surprise surprise, wont be covered un warranty.
    Kwik fit bad for that with mots... alot of fails on there cheap tests... wont fix many tyres with punchers... make more ££££ on a new tyre.
    Just ask alot of questions and make sure they do what u want

    the guys have good talk but after having my zafira gsi for 7 weeks in total and not having a clue what was wrong with it. after i told them the turbo was knackered i cant rate them to much.. finally squeezed a new turbo out of them and 12 months warranty.. oh wait i am still waiting on that and to top it off cars pissing oil! back on the phone tomorrow!

    but to be fair that may be a one off some of the guys seem alright i think they just took a risk selling a 52 plate car!

    Hey dude.... dunno if it's too far away from your area or not, but avoid Greenock Arnold Clark at all costs.... Lindsay's of Dumbarton are brilliant. They have a young dude there with an Astra Coupe who's Z20Let'n it and know's his stuff
