I'll be looking for a full refund and tell them they are lucky your not going to be charging them for the inconvenience with it being off the road.
Plus think you should also be contacting VX customer services and letting them know what's happening and the amount of time it's been off the road in the dealers being so called repaired

Just shows that your VX tech guys are not that technical with the Antara
Vehicles are getting to technical with all the new safety extras and goodies vehicles have fitted nowadays
