CBA or not, you really should throw it into VX. Warranty work is about the only feedback the factory gets for parts failures...

Also, might be more to it...

I know its been a while since I posted on here, but it was diagnosed to be the drive shaft bearing within the gearbox. With me also experiencing occasional problems getting into 2nd gear, even with no warranty on the vehicle, Vauxhall made me up a brand new gearbox and had it delivered and fitted all absolutely free. Top marks for Vauxhall!!

I believe that you've just coined a phrase for Albs Renault.  Le Tadpole!  :y  ;D

Or maybe Le Tetard?  ???  :)

Perhaps or not... point is, it might not be the bearing, so you'll potentially end up paying for all sorts of stuff when it could all have been done for free :-\

Northern or not, if the 'box suddenly fails, you'll be paying for that whereas if it were previously in fo related warranty work, then it would be covered by the original warranty.

No point buying a nearly new car if you don't take advantage of the protection that it affords ;)

I'm beginning to wonder if Uncle STEMO is actually OOF's wealthiest member rather than Lord Opti.  :-\  ::)

148? I doubt Opti would be bothered bending down to pick that up if it was lying in the street.  ;D
