Meriva power steering failure/hidden zafira engine

Target: Vauxhall
DON'T EVEN TOUCH A VAUXHALL WITH A BARGEPOLE.... if you value your life, I have a 2003 vauxhall meriva which has developed the Vauxhall known power steering fault, I called vauxhall regarding the watchdog repair to be told due to age of vehicle they won't repair. Under the EEC Directive in the event of power steering failure the car should be able to be steered, it isn't and nearly ended in a nasty crash! Bit vauxhall knowing these vehicles had the fault did not recall these death traps and now it falls in my lap to pay the extortionate costs evolved in making this death trap safe. This should have been fixed on a recall years ago not cause near death. Will I buy another vauxhall death trap in the future? No way! I will recommend no one else does with there attitude to human life. The Meriva has between 2003-2009 a serious know power steering fault, the zafira catches fire! What's next. Very disappointed vauxhall especially as the vehicle is for the use of my two disabled parents who I care for and am living on a basic carers allowance this is a huge expense!

"Not happy. Scary for all in the car. The expense of getting another car and Vauxhall saying that the fault couldn't be proven. "

"2nd recall and 2nd time without a car through no fault of my own. Heating seems to not work properly now and my trust in this company is gone! Still worrying that car could go up in flames :("

"I bought a Vauxhall zafira in October 2014 and it caught on fire in December 2014 me,my partner and my 3 children (I was also pregnant with my fourth child at the time hence the reason for buying the zafira) luckily we all managed to get out of the car in time and were unhurt but my son suffered terribly in the aftermath he would not sleep in his own room for weeks and only agreed to when we got him a fire extinguisher to keep beside his bed! He still suffers today and gets really panicky and upset at the slightest smell of burning I have also become a very nervous driver if I ever smell anything strange my stomach sinks and I fear it is going to happen again. We had only just pulled away from our home when the fire started and were on our way to the petrol station so I dread to think what could have happened if we had reached our destination. This problem needs sorting before someone is seriously hurt or worse still killed by one of these fires,I will NEVER put myself or my family in another Vauxhall cat ever again! "
