dropping doors

Post by EliteEstate » Sun Dec 29, 2019 9:01 pm

both my front doors are now dropping .
damage is now happening to all 4 doors because of it .
my dealer said hes never heard of that happening before .
I said come out side , and look at the white grandland near the entrance ,
he said , why whats wrong with it ,
I showed him the paint damage because of the dropped doors .
he said that's strange , hes not noticed that before , as the car is his .
he said a bit of touch up will sort it .
I said yes , but when front and rear get opened and closed at the same time it will happen again .

HOW CAN A SERVICE MANAGER NOT NOTICE A FAULT LIKE THIS ON HIS OWN CAR .
HE DID NOT HAVE A CLUE ABOUT IT .
HE THEN SAID BECAUSE MINE IS DARK GREY , IT LOOKS WORSE THAN IT REALLY IS .
I NOW TELL THE KIDS DO NOT OPEN THE REAR DOORS , UNTILL BOTH FRONT ARE CLOSED , I TELL THE WIFE NOT TO OPEN THE FRONT DOOR UNTILL THE REAR IS CLOSED . THE PAINT AND CROME TRIM DAMAGE IS TERRIBLE .
IVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS ON A CAR BEFORE .

he said he will tell his body shop , but has not seen or heard of this before .

I also went to available car.com , they had 3 grandlands in .

all 3 had this paint and top chrome trim damage . one had rust appearing on two of the doors .
I told the salesman , he said not a problem , it will be sorted when someone buys .
I said if Vauxhall cannot sort the dropped doors , what chance will your valet department have .
