147 JTD-mjet

Moaning Jammy Git


I'm the proud driver of a lovely 147, which by sheer jamminess and luck, I managed to get my company to buy me as a company car

Oh how I wish I'd bought that Astra Envoy for the same price...

Only thing is - I had an unwelcome experience today when the Cam Belt broke... as i was doing ~ahem~ "just under 70" on the motorway... apparently its broken the engine...

Ah well 18 months of trouble free motoring (Except for the brakes... oh and the sat-nav thingy... oh and the suspension broke... and the electric window on the passenger side... and... oh there was a light that came on intermittantly...)

But at the end of it all - this is still the best car I've ever driven... I'm absolutley astounded - if it broke down every other day... at least I'd get a day of driving it...

I've got this off my chest now - my car has gone into the dealers on the back of an AA wagon... so I'll let you know my experience of dealing with them (Quite handy I live across the road from the dealer - and I'm good at shouting at people on the phone... I mean... having a well rounded conversation with customer service personnell)
