Wondering if anyone will be able to help me on this?

Basically my hire car from Europcar has a slow puncture I think, I’m pretty sure it was there when I received the car because pretty much from the start I’ve been pumping one of the tires up weekly, do I keep going as I am and just living with it, or do Vauxhall’s cover the costs from Europcar? I don’t wanna ring them directly incase they try and sting me with a big bill?

If you have a hire car, why not just contact europecar and ask them to fix it.

I would think that a puncture would be covered as part of the price that also include wear and tear on parts that one can assume will be worn out over time.

Just wondering if anyone has received their second recall letter yet? My car had the work done more than 6 weeks ago.

I received a duplicate first recall letter, rang up to see if they had actually put it through the computer properly and they just booked it in for step two. It appears that the parts are now generally available.

Ours was done on 28 December.
The clutch stick down twice recently so I asked at Vauxhall service desk. Had to explain about the recall, I don’t think they were keen on doing it but after a bit of a chat it’s booked in for 4 April but as it hadn’t failed we didn’t qualify for a hire car. After sweet talking the service lady we are getting a courtesy car whilst ares is being done.
