Just a note, to thank Sourgate Holden in Adelaide , they reset my airbag light for free, after telling me it would be 30 bucks on the phone .
I was floored they did something for free.

sometimes people amaze me wanting things done for nothing.
the tool to do this costs $8000
the person doing it needs to be paid as well.

if people have the right attitude to start with & offer to pay most times i will let them off, if they sook & carry on about it they get charged.

try to remember guys Holden dealers are in business to make money, not do freebies all day in the driveway for people who have more than likely caused the problem themselves by messing with things they have no idea about. (not saying this is the case here ok)
it just upsets me when people think the whole world owes them something for nothing.

I've had about 4 things, bigger than that done free of charge, thanks. I don't know what all this talk of dealers being greedy bastards is.

just to re-program my new remote for central locking, they charged me $45, only took them 10 minutes. Recently I went to a Holden Dealer so they can check my power steering pump (making noises), and they said they wanted to charge $14 to take alook, I was shocked and told them off.:(

Until you buy the car, they'll be so close and be friends with you, then after you buy the car and something goes wrong, they dont even want to know you!
