Not as bad as this. Gridlocked at 7pm on a Friday evening ffs. Couldn't even get into the short term carpark without a half hour wait.

Are you serious? I used to fly into Brisbane on Friday afternoons and it was that bad years ago I work longer hours away so I can come back on Thursdays.

Yep. They spent millions upon millions of $$ on that new carpark and it has only made the problem worse. I also have a feeling that Brisbane being a major FIFO hub might also have something to do with it but could be wrong.

I was being sarcastic when I asked if you were serious, my point being its been so bad for so long I come back Thursday's now because I don't get paid if my plane is delayed

No thank god, but my role is company specific, not branch specific so I travel to other branches regularly

Made: coffee

Ruined: coffee :(

Machines now fully fucked. Not going to drop any more $$ bringing it back from the dead. That'd be like my father in law who just spent $2500 on his VT Commodore (executive) to keep it on the road when it has a net value of $750.

Future made: time for an upgrade. Next machine and grinder will be Italian.

Is that your car Ash, or the Mrs? Did you sell the XR6?

What was the matter with it?

the polo is mine. needed a cheap, reliable, fuel economical car to get to work in. 2/3 isnt bad HAHA :lol:

i sold the xr6 months ago. it was too expensive to drive every day to work (600km a week on average) so it just sat at home for most of its life.
it was a waste of money to keep it rego'd and insured for the odd drive here and there. so i've been driving my wife's old car (2003 Pulsar) in the meantime.
we replaced it with the polo cause she was getting old and starting to cost a bit of money to keep it on the road. :lol: epic fail.

Nice little car Ash.

I'm very interested to know a) what happened, and b) how VW will fix it.

Jokes aside, this is why I wont buy a VW. For every person I hear who loves theirs (tipper) there's at least someone who has broken down, needs a new gearbox or two (seriously) or has some flaw which in this day and age should not exist.

Apparently it's just an air leak in the system. They'll diagnose it properly on Monday and go from there.

One negative is that the vw assist and service department have been really unhelpful. Falling back on their "policies" as an excuse. But at the same time being apologetic about it.
I don't wanna hear you're sorry. I want it fixed asap!

On a positive the sales department have been amazing and have gone above an beyond.
They've provided me with a car until mine is fixed whereas the other departments all said "sorry, we don't have a car available" or "call back Monday when the loans department is open".

All in all its a shame it's happened to a new car. But shit happens and they're fixing it, so that's life. :)
