Once again Vauxhall come up trumps when it comes to employing cretins.

Rachel drops her car off for a service, whilst she is waiting for her dad to pick her up she hears "vrrrooommm tiiissshh vroooommmm tiiissshhh vrrroooomm tiiisshhh" revving the balls off it whilst its at stand still

Even better the bloke got into it not to move it or anything, just to rev it up and make the dump valve go off, he got in, turned it on, revved it up, got out, locked it and walked away

I would fit a rev limiter to my car which would prevent it from going over 10 mph if I had to leave it with a spanner monkey for 5 minutes.

Warranty runs out in December but its good for it to have FVSH seeing as the car is worth quite a bit of money.

She has taken it to a different garage out in the sticks because of the trouble we have had with our local one, what with them butchering her dash in her Corsa, them crashing my Astra and now this.

Tell me about it Ollie, took dad's car for a service, some monkey changed the air filter and removed the entire AFM for some reason, then reassembled it with the AFM in backwards There's a sodding arrow on it FFS:



Took it back 6 times as the EML kept coming on, they replaced throttle body, ICV and ECU, wanted to charge us as it was just coming off warranty, but none of it helped, EML still came on and car ran like shit.

In the end, I was cleaning under the bonnet, saw as soon as I lifted it that the arrow was pointing the wrong way, took it back for them to change and surprise surprise, problem solved. Idiots.

Cunts. My car is well known at the vauxhall dealership I use. Although I did get a text from a mate telling me he just saw my car go past at the rate of fuck knows what whilst in the posession of vauxhall. Not happy.
