My orange engine management light came on the other day, its sometimes on, sometimes not now - (not constantly on) - and the car doesn't seem to feel to have anything wrong with it. Still drives fine.

Went into vauxhall to see if they could enlighten me on what was wrong. Was expecting to pay around 25-30 to get my car plugged in and see what the error number was.

The woman behind the desk said it'd cost 76!!! just to find out what the problem was... then I'd be quoted on how much to fix it and that was my choice whether to take it...

76 quid, I just walked out.

I'm not paying that to find out something small has gone wrong, like a little sensor!

If my car wasn't running well or was dying on me - fair play I'd be eager to know, but when the car itself is running as well as the day it was bought, I just don't want to shell out.

The car was v.recently serviced (like a month ago) and is not driven too hard...

another example of vauxhauls rip off ness, is when I had a single wing mirror knocked off.

I went there expecting to shell out about 50 - it was over 130! For a SINGLE mirror - not a pair.]


yeh i wud say thats a rip off, i work there and its well ova priced, if u need it pluggin in tech 2 or discount on parts ....jus ask for James
