    A company cant sue you for defamation. Its individuals only. It would have to be defaming to him, not his business.

    Yep being treated like a ********* by a sales staff member can be only my subjective opinion.
    He/she might normally treat another customer like a god amongst men.
    Their service staff at the same dealership on the other hand may resolve your issue of vibrating steering wheel when braking efficiently, politely and economically.
    (just steered back kind of to the original topic).

    they don't call them stealerships for nothing.

    just go to a reputable brake place.

    As Holden and it's dealers struggle to increase new car sales, the "stealership" problem will only get worse as the dealers try anything and everything to increase their diminishing income while Holden will gouge the dealers (and thus us) on used car part wholesale pricing. 3rd party workshop labour rates may be better but their parts prices may still be high. We may all end up having to buy from US sources if we want well priced parts.

    You can't steer well because the vibration is off putting :p

    "A company can be defamed, though only small corporations can sue for defamation. Small corporations are those which employ fewer than 10 people and which are not related to any other corporation. For the purpose of counting the number of employees, part-time employees are to be counted as an appropriate fraction of a full-time employee. Companies, like people, have reputations that can be damaged. However, although companies can claim damages for loss of reputation, they can get nothing for injury to feelings. It is said they have no feelings."

    https://lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/ch16s01s01.php
    (google "can a company sue for deformation" ; google is your feind)

    So you are correct that we can say what we want about large companies but it becomes harder to temper oneself when discussing small companys after the slandering habits towards large companies have developed.

    "Since larger corporations were prevented from suing for defamation in 2003 (in New South Wales) and 2006 (elsewhere in Australia), claims for damage to business reputation are now more likely to be framed in the torts of injurious falsehood, deceit, negligent misstatement and statutory prohibitions against misleading or deceptive conduct, all of which can be more difficult to prove than defamation.

    Larger corporations can also pursue claims for defamation in the names of their officers or employees who are generally known as the public face of the corporation, whether or not they are expressly named in the offending article or publication."

    https://www.claytonutz.com/knowledg...t-for-defamation-in-business-reputation-cases

    Sadly, if you pee off large corporations, it seems they can still hammer you into oblivion using the other laws available to them.

    I'd err on the side of caution and temper potentially slanderous statements agaist specific "stealerships" for example.

    Back to wobbly wheels may be?

    While your self educating via Google, have a look at some case law and see how many people have been put before a civil court by a big company and lost. And how many of those were posters on a forum.
    I won't go into the nuts and bolts of it but they would be pushing that brown sticky stuff up a virtually vertical hill.

    Is off topic but here goes....

    You think that is bad? In the US that applies to Pharmaceuticals. You can get really fücked up from any vaccination (Autism, Paralysis, etc...) and Big Pharma is not liable.

    Ok, back to the Vibration topic.

    No, not really, this isn’t a Thing except among anti-vaxxers ... you don’t want to get involved with them, reality means nothing & they’re all nuts.
    And measles has done way more damage than even the anti-vaxxers claim vaccinations do (thanks anti-vaxxers for bringing it back).

    When I was a kid, Measels, Mumps, Chicken Pox and few others was nothing to worry about. It was encouraged to get infected, we even had "parties". Once you got them, you were fixed for life and that was the whole point.


    Ok, once again, back on the Vibration topic.

    Chicken pox itself can and does kill some % of those that are infected. Most survived, but for some % it also comes back later in life as singles. Measles can and does kill some % of those that are infected and can also cause other (life threatening) condition some years later.

    Yet years ago, ignorant parents encourage infections in their kids via purposeful exposure. But these infections can kill... I think it was 0.2% for measles, that’s 2 out of 1000 infections. Seems ignorance can kill after all.

    Same stupidity is exhibited today by these idiot antivaxers. They base their decision not to immunise on fear generated from non factual post within ignorant forums. And they think they are saving their kids from autism. Even if immunisation related autism was a real thing (it’s not) it would be at a much lower % risk than simply dying from the disease through not being immunised. Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water o_O

    But the kicker is that without herd immunity, some % of those that are immunised could still get sick as immunisations are not 100% guarantee in avoiding the disease. So everybody needs to be immunised to stop the spread of the disease within our society. It’s a selfish, irrational and fear driven emotion not to immunise.

    Can’t say it enough. It’s stupid stupid stupid not to immunise.

    IIUC, in the 60’s and early 70’s you needed to be immunised to even be allowed into Australia. Me, I’d simply bring that rule back and any home grown antivaxers can go on an extended holiday o/s if they like.

    I think is pounded enough the vaccination deal.

    Is the Vibration sorted out?

    2 comments that seem pro antivaxer and 2 rebuttles hardly qualifies as "pounded enough". Antivaxers, like flat earth believers should be discouraged where ever they pop up.
    Last we herd from @Flying Scotsman was at post 97, he sent the issue to HCC but we havent heard back so were chewing the fat while we wait.

    Wouldn't surprise me if that particular poster has 10 solicitors and 5 barristers on a retainment in preparation for a simple car service....:D

    Give you a little tip.....Check out the news every now and then....Be it the paper, on the telly or radio.....There has been media reporting about social media comments being made and how difficult it is holding those people accountable due to anomidity (spelling I know)

    Now refer back to some quoting you made via google and have a think how that would apply to what I have just mentioned now...

    I'm also fairly confident the moderators of this site would be all over this sort of thing and would take appropriate action where necessary....

    So Holden's offer is 'machine the rotors' as gesture of goodwill. No mention of what's to happen with the pads. What do you guys reckon? Machine them at under 16k kms or push for replacement?

    They wont replace them unless they're below 'minimum thickness'.

    Get them machined and see how things go after that....It'll be recorded with them the work performed and IF the issue persists, you may be able to query further about the rotors being replaced
