My beloved Camping Gaz powered Vauxhall Astra has broken down and has been out of commission for a week whilst two different Garages have tried to diagnose where the problem is. The main dealer failed, but the brilliant independent Vauxhall Garage at Bicester have tracked the fault down to the number one LPG injector.
Good news: A diagnosis
Bad news: Injectors cannot be bough individually so I have to buy the full set meaning a total repair bill of £1042
Good News: I thankfully renew and pay for the warranty every year with ‘Recall Direct’
REALLY bad news: Recall Direct say that they don’t cover Injectors!
I’ve had a conversation with them and they say it is not listed as a covered part therefore no claim. I have tried to point out that if they had bought Buildings insurance which left out a room and certain walls and your claim was invalidated because the problem occured in that room, you’d feel quite cheated. My logic is without effect though and I either scrap the car or pay the repair. AAAAArrrghghghgh
My new definition of frustrating!
