Re: Key gets stuck in ignition

Hello, I am also experiencing this problem. Can you tell me if the issue was rectified by lubrication please. Is this something that is covered by Vauxhall under warranty?

Re: Alcantara??

My wife says no way, I say yes. Although it'd likely be a prohibitively expensive option anyway!

Key gets stuck in ignition

Hi all, My other half has said the key has started to get stuck in the ignition over the past few days when trying to take the key out and it's happened to me now as well.

Re: 1.6d oil consumption?

The manual says the max consumption is 0.6l per 1000km so I guess some usage is to be expected and pretty much aligns with your engines usage.
