    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

  1. This is a story not often heard..
    We have both had our brand new Vauxhall's  since last December after selling our cars and most upsetingly our caravan after caravaning for over 50 years, we treated ourselves to  a new car each.
    Both cars going well -- to us. However not good enough for Vauxhall !!!!
    mine a Crosslander X and Mary's Corsa.
    In about February I received an email from Vauxhall to say that my car was performing in-correctly. -- how do they know this? Well ! all new Vauxhalls come fitted with an onboard computer monitoring all aspects of the car, everything even down to individual tyre pressures, wind screen washer fluids and every thing transmiting this to Vauxhall.. Our seats and stearing wheel wernt heating corectly and a couple of other things.
    They told us that my car was not preforming to specification, could I take it into the agents - our dealer - we did and were told that our car was being recalled and would be replaced with a brand new - un-registered car, but as ours was an elite specification auttomatic with all the trimmings it was being programmed into the production line and wouldntn't be ready till October 'ish'. In the mean time I could drive this one  - didnt matter about miles etc -- no problem just bring it in when we tell you.
    They did give us an alternative £389 + £500 compensation or the new car ---- what would you have done???
    Couldnt quite believe this  as this was comming from London - so I went to the local dealer and he knew all about it and was looking forward to handing over a new car to us.. It would make his numbers good for that month.
    What do you all think Cash or Car.??????
    Let us know
