Re: Stop / Start issues

Lock-N. Really pleased to hear that your s/s is working as it should. Like Spiro has said, if you could let us know the details of the new battery i can get back on to Vauxhall again and see if they offer me a new upgraded battery. I agree with Ken_A it is time that Vauxhall come clean and admit tha...

Re: Stop / Start issues

Re: ANNOYING RATTLE.

Midinotes and all, the answer is a big NO !! I cannot find this annoying rattle. It doesnt happen on the motorway, just over bumps and rougher roads. I have driven around with a person sitting in the back with the rear seats down in the hope they could pinpoint the noise, but to no avail. It seems t...

Re: Stop / Start issues

Hi, i can understand your frustration over this matter Lock-N. i too have been in touch with Vauxhall over the s/start issue, and got absolutely nowhere. I have resigned myself to the fact that it doesnt work as it should and just given up. Friends have other makes of vehicles, and their s/start wor...

Re: Stop / Start issues

Its just sooo frustrating, and Vauxhall dont seem to be interested.
Maybe somebody should bring this issue to the attention of the Bbc Watchdog series. They seem to get to the bottom of these problems.

Re: ANNOYING RATTLE.

Hi. I too have the same annoying rattle. It sounds like it comes from the nearside rear. I have checked the boot compartment, spare wheel area etc but just cannot find anything thats loose. I always check the metal clasp on the seatbelt isnt resting on the side panel. The knocking sound is louder wh...

Re: Stop / Start issues

Hi Guys, just been and looked at battery on my Grandland. Its black, says Varta on the top and is L3 EF 12v 70ah 760A (en). Not adequate in my opinion for vehicle, hence s/s never working.

Re: Stop / Start issues

I tried numerous times to get some joy from Vauxhall Customer Service regarding this issue. I sent emails and made phone calls over the course of several months. It got me nowhere, but made me feel very frustrated.. i have no idea how to get an upgraded battery fitted as neither Vauxhall nor my Deal...

Re: Stop / Start issues

Ken, have these Grandland owners purchased these batteries themselves or had them fitted for free. I have spoken to vauxhall customer service many many times over this issue. Its like banging your head on a brick wall. I do think Vauxhall are aware of this issue but are burying their head in the san...
