Hi. Two days ago on the way to work, my girlfriends Corsa STI was working fine with no problems. Then when we came out to work and went to leave, the Fuel Emission light began to come on, and the engine started choking, and the car started shaking. Luckily we made it back into the world industrial estate from the roundabout and pulled over. So I said just give it a few minutes, start the engine and try and rev it a little to warm it up, but after 20 seconds it started choking again. So we pushed the car back into works car park and left it there for the night, and the next day Evans Halshaw sent The AA out of there behalf to check the car, and pick it up. The AA man found the problems, said it was something to do with the battery and the fuel emission system, and these faults even showed up when he did the diagnostic test on the computer. So it was then taken to Evans Halshaw who said the same thing was wrong. So my girlfriend left the car, and they told her exactly what the AA man told her and that it should cost £170 to fix. Anyway, as time went on, she rang back at 5pm later that day, and they told her that a clip or some kind of a bracket had broken, and that they may need to strip the car. And then the next bit that really had me fuming was, that the price somehow went from £170, all the way up to £1000. Surely that clip and bracket was broken when the car was in there care, because the AA man gave the car a thorough check before he towed it to Evans Halshaw. She hasnt even had the car for 6 months, and she pauid £3500, £400 of which was for a warranty, that she has now been told, covers absoloutly nothing. Advice please. Are the dealership messing my girlfriend about.
have the same problem?
