My handbrake cable snapped at the front on my ss today, so I call my local Holden Dealer tell him the make model and VIN he says he dosent have one but will get it by 1.30
So whilst i wait i disassemble car, then drive down pick up new cable, install reassmble interior and, then discover its to long to adjust.
Call dealer ask if there is a difference between wagon and sedan and ute, he initially says no then I ask him to check, he then says ooops yes. Disassemble car again now waiting for correct part, How god damn hard can it be.

The sedans have a shorter wheelbase than wagons and utes. The dealer should have thought to ask which one you needed. A good parts interpreter would have known that. Your disappointment is justified.

Holden Melton... Fail!

Was my first stop when buying my new car as it's my local dealer, bloke was an absolute ####head, wasn't interested in selling me a car at all, so told him to get ####ed, went down the road to Kevin Dennis sunshine and purchased it!

Wankers, that's all. :p

Yeah but how could the dealer get it wrong when hes working off the VIN?
