The slow death of Vauxhall? in AutoShite Posted April 17, 2018 · Report reply I know of someone who has a Mobility Zafira, 17 plate. Was speaking to him on Saturday & he told me that he had just got it back from the Vauxhall Dealer the day before. I asked him why & he replied that it cuts out on him at random, & did it on the motorway at 70mph. Just cut out. The dealer had it for 3 days & could not find anything wrong with it. He told them it was random when it happens. This is a 2017 petrol, not a diesel one. I have my old Astra Van, 05, & covered 170,000 odd miles now & it is a reliable old thing. Mrs OC has a 2005 55 Astra H 1.6 & in the near 3 years that she has had it, other than general maintenance & a Service, it has never put a wheel wrong. That has covered 112,000 odd miles now, she got it at 92,000. But a new Vauxhall, I would not bother with.
