Yesterday on a motorway in Spain when coming out of Cruise Control the clutch failed. Pressing it achieved nothing. Gears would not change. Got towed off to a garage and am awaiting their diagnosis.

We have used it recently for towing a small caravan - but have done no more than a 100 miles in total with the caravan attached.


My Antara is 5 years old and has only done just under 40,000 miles - surely this shouldn't happen?


Does anyone think I have a case against Vauxhall-Opel for some compensation?



Regards
Lorraine

Maybe but I wouldn't hold your breath. I've had my Antara five months and I've done 8000 miles in it and the clutch has always felt terrible, always felt like it's going to fail but like everything else wrong with the car, Vauxhall just are not interested and because they know I own a caravan, they've said if it fails they'll charge me for a new clutch no matter how many miles the car has done!

I have always owned Vauxhall's but this will definitely be my last.
