Reversing fine. I live in London but I'm taking the car back to the dealership where I brought it in Worcester. They will give me a courtesy car. Funny enough I wanted to take the car to my local vauxhall in staples corner Brent x but they hadn't had any car in to give me. They got fuck all in But I'm seeing a friend in Worcester so they may keep the car for a week. Getting a corsa. Driving that that down to London then back up again. Bloody long. But I cannot fault the flawless service i received I'm more the happy to drive 130miles who mechanic know what wrong. Also I got a small stone chip. Gonna asked to sort that out also

Got mine back last night. New Master, slave cylinders and all the bits between no arguments or discussions it was "we are replacing the lot". Driving OK but I've only done a dozen miles. Fast turn around from the dealer (same one that replaced the engine last year). Less than a week in the garage. Hope everyone else has the same success.

Mine in week Friday I take it that was all done on warranty. What did they say was the main cause bad design plus what the vauxhall garage did the work. So in case they try and fob me off. I doubt it. Because I get the mechanic to speak to your guys hilght that be helpful

It was Martin Rumble in Nuneaton. Now one of the Drive dealerships (which I don't rate) but still all the old staff at the moment.

All under warranty. I am thinking it's likely a bad batch same as the pistons that fail in the engine.

So far so good the clutch hasn't play up. The car book in this Friday. Do you think they find a fault even those it never when into gear a fews week ago. Plus changing the master cylinder and slave cylinder how long is that job take to do
