        Opel Astramajor technical failure of a new opel car + unreasonable repair cost

        I am trying to reach the Customer Support of Opel Germany and I cant find any contact details.

        I have bought a New Opel Astra in Oct 2010 in Cyprus. Last week the gearbox broke and needs to be replaced. The cost that Opel in Cyprus asked for was 5000 Eur which is 80% of the total current value of the car. However their initial estimation was [protected] Eur, on which they may have offered a very small discount.

        I believe that it is premature to have such a technical failure on such a brand, preceded by so many other technical issues (coil inside the engine broke 1yr ago). I also believe that even [protected] is an unreasonable cost, let alone 5000.

        In addition, please note that I am totally unhappy with the services offered by Opel in Cyprus: they are not responsive at all, they ignore complaints, they take very long to check the car and no one communicates with the customer, and their prices are outrageous.

          Mansor opelcompany rules

          Dear Customer Service,

          My Name Is Mahmoud Abdel Bary, I live in Cairo – Egypt, and I own an Opel Astra 2004, I bought this car 3 months ago from a friend, it was 2nd hand…

          Honestly I haven’t drive such a vehicle before, the car has amazing options which I didn’t find in any Automobile I use to own…

          Two weeks ago I had a problem in the car’s engine, so I decided to take the car to the maintenance center to fix the car, and provide me with any original spare parts….

          As soon as I entered the service center with the car I faced many problems, which really made me regret driving an Opel not because of the vehicle, but because of the franchise of Opel here in Egypt, which is Mansour..

          At the beginning of my entrance of the center, I met Eng. Emad, he didn’t even welcome me, he simply asked me one question.. have you ever done any maintenance here ? I informed him that this is a used a car and I don’t know, he took the engine number and checked on the database, and he found out that the car didn’t enter the center before, and he refused to receive the car..

          Without Arguing with Eng. Emad I simply asked him if there is a higher rank who I can talk to, he made me meet Mr. Mostafa Kamal (Reception Manager), who accordingly confirmed the same fact that they will not receive the car as long as it didn’t make any maintenance here…

          I told them that this doesn’t make sense, and you are simply informing me to get rid from the car, they simply ignored my phrase, I informed them that I’ll complain in the Head Office in Austria, by they seemed not interested or threatened…

          Please I need real action, because I have already wasted time, money, and I’m really depressed from the service which I don’t think it is an international rules & procedures from the mother company…

            Opel Vectra c - 2008 modelengine faliure

            My name is Moataz Nabil, I'm Egyptian & I live in Cairo in; this is my second time to contact Opel Germany directly in a desperate attempt to regain my rights from General Motors Egypt.

            Back on April 28th 2008, I purchased a a brand new Opel Vectra 1.6 cc Easytronic transmission with the following details:

            Model - 2008
            Engine capacity - 1.6 cc
            Engine # - 1369
            Chasis # - [protected]

            I invested in this car the amount of 195, 000.00 Egyptian Pounds equivalent to approximately 29, 000.00 Euros at the time of purchase which was all my savings in the past 5 years + a bank loan & now I'm totally moneyless after all that I spent on this notorious vehicle! After a fake test drive on a car which is definitely not like the one that I bought I was convinced. But when I drove the car for the first time, it seemed strange & not like the one that I test drove, the gearbox was strange & the car kept jumping & stopped twice!!! I took to the General Motors main Service Center (Mansour Opel/Chevrolet) after the first 1000 KM & they told me that this is normal & that I will get use to driving it because it needs a different sense; absolute nonsense! Anyhow, the real problems started after 5000 KM & I will brief tem as follows:

            1. I kept hearing a horrible voice from the engine when I put the air condition on & accelerate. I took to the main service center & they told me that there was a factory defect in the compressor but unfortunately it was not available. I kept going back & forth till it finally arrived & they changed the compressor after 4 months; however I was shocked when the horrible voice continued.
            2. I went again to the service center, they rechecked the car & said that the evaporator had to be changed!!! I insisted that sound was from the engine but they insisted that it was from the evaporator; again the sound continued.
            3. I went again & they told me that this is a normal engine sound with the air condition on; ridiculous reply!!!
            4. I kept on trying with Mansour spending significant amounts of time, money & more importantly this inflicted a painful psychological effect on me.
            5. At around 25000 KM, I started hearing noises from everywhere in the car, the doors, the windows, the interiors etc.
            6. The big problem was when, all of a sudden, the gearbox showed F on the screen & the car wouldn't move. I had to bring a truck to carry the car to the service center!!! At this time, I sent the first complaint to Opel Germany. The staff at the service center insisted that coke or pepsi & cigarette ashes were inside the gearbox internal compartment & that this caused the problem; by the way I don't smoke! After many discussions, they fixed it without charging me. I left but wasn't satisfied with the car.
            7. The problems kept popping up every now & then & the horrible engine sound with the air-condition on started showing with the air-condition is off; this was 3 days ago.
            8. I took it today to the service center at 69000 KM, I was shocked & had severe chest pain when they told me that the engine has complete failure only after 4 months from the expiration of the warranty.
            9. I expected that they will do this with me after all the strange & fishy maneuvers.
