  • ECM Recall Resumed

    Hope it works buddy! This is just another example of VX's inability to communicate to its customers!

      Is this a recall (ie I can go to the stealer and demand they do it), or just done if the car happens to be in for something else anyway?

        Is there a way of checking if our car needs it? Or just ring the stealer/ Vauxhall? I don't like my stealer :-(

          I get 400/600+ miles to a full tank depending on if I'm driving around town or motorway which is around 70 litres and costs around ?100 this is good enough for me, if VX are killing cars by trying to update them I'd rather keep mine how it is, after all if something ain't broke don't fix it



          That's my thought at the minute. I'm getting 40mpg.. Not great but not bad either about 45 on the motorway. It ain't broke so I don't think I'll let Vauxhall anywhere near it after all they couldn't fix the small niggles the car has.

            The recall was issued in Nov 2012 and suspended 16th Dec 2012. As above have said it wrecked mpg and idle levels as well as messing up auto gearing etc. I was getting 28.4 mpg mixed driving so probably cost me between 500-800 extra in fuel costs over last 7 months!! Glad I'm now shot of it!

              That's 25/39mpg surely something not right?

                        The suspended one was for 10/11 plate 160 diesels manual and autos! They might have changed it since the new one has been released!

                          Had mine done today not done a lot of miles yet so see what happens, they also found that the intercooler pipe was split quoted me ?202 all in for pipe and labour, i mentioned that other people have had it done outside of VX warranty and gave me 50% discount so ?101 fitted well pleased, that's Evens Halshaw Plymouth great customer service which i was surprised at.

                              I thought this update was only for 10/11 plates?
