Ok. My daughter bought a second hand car from a Vauxhall dealership. It was an Alfa Romeo Giulietta , after a while it developed a problem and broke down. They could not fix it and it was sent to Palmer’s Alfa Romeo in Hemel Hempstead in February.
They diagnosed there was an electronic fault that needed a part. The part was not available in this country or in Italy. We have been told that the part is being made and shipped we have been told this several times as of yet the car is still parked in a garage Alfa Romeo in Hemel Hempstead.
Thankfully we have a courtesy car from Vauxhall but there is still no sign of this part arriving or indeed being made. Vauxhall are themselves getting annoyed how appalling another main dealer is being run. My daughter’s friends and everyone she knows in Hemel now honestly think Alfa Romeo is a joke company.
Hope this info helps.
