Vauxhall Zafira (http://www.sparewheeltheft.co.uk) Spare wheel theft

I thought I would post this topic just in case anyone reading this forum either owns a Zafira, is thinking of buying a Zafira (http://www.sparewheeltheft.co.uk), or has already had the wheel stolen from theirs…

There is a known flaw with the car that allows the spare wheel to be easily stolen within a matter of seconds.

Vauxhall (http://www.sparewheeltheft.co.uk) are well aware of the problem but as of yet, have refused to do anything about it...

(most likely because they are doing very well as a result of all of the new wheels that are having to be purchased – Demand for the wheels is now so high that Vauxhall (http://www.sparewheeltheft.co.uk) are unable to keep up, and have run out of spare wheels for the car…)

A site has been set up to inform people about the problem and provide real accounts of what people’s experiences have been...

If you are interested, the address is...


No money is being made from the site in any way...
