2001 Zafira starting problems

12-21-2002, 11:45 AM
Car has real trouble starting - Gauges behave weirdly when it does for a few seconds. Then everything is normal

Any other Opel or Vauxhall Zafira owners out there????

Things I'm interested in with this car:-
- Performance mods
- Service and repair manuals
- Troubleshooting
- Styling mods

Anyone else interested??

Guess not then....

The starting problem was the ECU - Failed after just 1 year and also out of warrantly because Opel only offer 1 year warranty in the UK - SHIT!!!

Cost nearly 700 quid to put right. Vauxhall / Opel service - SHIT.

I still love the car and its usefulness as a load /people carrier but the support and service is the worst I've come across from any manufacturer. They are just not interested or even care enough to do a good job and they don't give a **** about customer care.

My other car is a BMW 840Ci. Its a different story there. Servicing is not much more than the Zaf.

I Learned to drive in our Zafira before we got A focus. If I stalled it it really made a fuss about starting again.
