  1. Hi all. Am new to the forum and was looking for some advice. Apologies for this being a bit of a long story... I bought a Vauxhall Corsa in March this year and immediately had problems with it. It went back to the dealer with a rattling noise and they did some work on it and replaced a part of the exhaust, a heat shield and one other part. The work was done over a number of visits because nothing was sorting out the noise. In total they had the car for about 15 days (separate one day visits) and the problem wasn’t fixed. They eventually told me it was a normal noise so there was noth
  2. I have a 2012 Vauxhall Corsa D that has developed an intermittent fault. It won't accelerate and jerks. The fault code is P2138. A local mechanic told me that this is a fault known to Vauxhall but it has not reached recall status. Vauxhall wrote about this in a service bulletin (13-E-3066 Accelerator Pedal-Engine Power is reduced - 2016-04-21) They have also produced a pack to fix it. I was dismayed to be told that this could cost several hundred pounds to fix. I can't understand why I should have to pay this if Vauxhall are aware of the problem. (My car is
  3. Hi, Last year i put my car (Vauxhall Corsa 08 plate) in for its service to a local family run garage (Garage A) that we have used for years. It was found that i had a slight oil leak coming from the sump plug, i was advised that they would re-tap and fit a new sump plug. Having moved away from the area i have today put my car into a Vauxhall Dealership (Garage B) for its service. I have been advised that i have a large leak from the sump plug caused by Garage A fitting the wrong sump plug, causing irreversable damage to the sump and a new sump, at a cost of £367 is required. Garage B
  4. Vauxhall has warned owners of around 3,000 vehicles to stop driving them until they have been inspected because of a steering problem. The UK carmaker said those affected are Adam and Corsa/Corsavan models registered since May 2014, which had been manufactured with a steering system part "that did not meet specification".
  5. Evening everyone, Hope you are all well. I bought a Vauxhall Corsa 1.3 CDTi Ecoflex in July 2012, it had 36k on the clock when I purchased it from Bristol St Motors. I paid on a Lloyds TSB credit card for the full purchase amount. I was given a 3 year warranty as part of the sales package (in actual fact it's probably not a freebie, more hidden in the price of the car). It was 42k on the clock now. The car was from stock and had to be brought from one site to the site I bought it from. I was told the car would have a 140 point check before being handed over to me. The car arrived 2
  6. Hiya, I'm new here, I've lurked before and friends have used the site a lot so thought I'd join up and ask about my recent misfortune. We have an 05 Corsa 1.2 SXi, it developed a misfire which subsequently snapped the exhaust camshaft. Apparently a common fault on the 2005 model only. link It's out of warranty, 5 years old, 50k miles, I bought it from an independant garage a year ago where it was serviced, I had an oil change done around February. I checked the oil on Thursday last week and it was OK so I'm guessing it's the loose cam cap bolts issue. The AA man dropped it off a
  7. I purchased a 1.3 CDTi Vauxhall Corsa Ecoflex Active in September 2012 and have had nothing but trouble with it. It is currently in the garage and has been there for 7weeks and they are apparently waiting for a new catalytic converter as a result of the DPF hose blowing and tearing. During this time I am continuing to pay the monthly HP payments. This is its 5th time in the garage and all the issues have been DPF related of which I was never informed about on purchase. I have been in contact with the dealer Peter Vardy and Vauxhall with no success. Is there any legal stance that after a ce
  8. Hi, I'd be grateful for any advice as my engine know how is pretty limited. I have a 2003 corsa 1.0 12v. A few months ago it was leaking oil, so I took it to a dealership garage and had a lot of work done, including replacing the timing chain and exhaust. I was particularly happy with the garage - their communication was non-existent, the price kept going up as they found more faults, and the air con that I'd asked them to look into was still broken when they returned it with no comment made. Last week, the engine died when I tried to start the car (unhealthy noise then loud knock)
