They are SHIIIIIIIITTTTT cars mate you are not wrong. I too have a 2007 model on a 57 plate, it had a genuine 13,500 miles when I bought in June 2016, is now on 19,800.
Clutch judder ------ rectal orifices at VX know full well this is a latent defect, they even have a TIS bulletin about it but refused help because the car is 9 year old F***K them, judder at 13,500 what sort of SHIIIIITTT has judder at this mileage
EGR valve needed replacing WTF ??????? at 13,500 K
Had NO power when I got it and was missing ---- **** ignition coils needed replacing ????? At 13,500 K WTF
There is a knock coming from the right hand front wheel. I have changed every component that can possible move Drop links, CV joint, tie rod end, ball joint, ARB's, lower arm bushes and yet still THUD THUD THUD
The RH inner CV joint has circumferential play ???????? Never seen that in any car before.
Went outside one day, all hazards were blinking everything in the car dead wouldn't start...then came back all by itself WTF
I was once a mechanic (until I got wise and left that lousy oily smelly trade) BUT have always continued to work on my own cars. At almost 50 I have had well over 30 cars in my time but none as bad as this crap. I will NEVER EVER EVER buy ANYTHING with a VX badge EVER again. Before this had a FIAT Multipla and compared to this that was Uber reliable. In fact hand on heart in 8 years of ownership it NEVER let me down........unlike this THING.
Look I always knew they weren't top quality but seriously who would honestly expect a car with such low mileage to give so much crap ?????
Look at this poor bugger
