  1. “We’ve sent it in the post” is AH code for ‘Fuck off, you can’t prove different, we’ve washed our hands of you. Crack on!’
  2. Hi, I’m not either but after going through the claims procedure a few years ago I decided it’s barely worth the long drawn out hassle getting a result. By the time I got my day in court (about 8 months, if memory serves) the whole episode was just a distant memory & the few hours spent over the months (every time winding myself up thinking of the cheeky bastard main dealer who’d tried to get one over on me) I came to the conclusion that unless the issue involved big money it’s just not worth the time/hassle/‘upset’. In the business of car dealing we all win a damn sight more than we lose, so the occasional loss is par for the course. Tbh I’d probably only resort to a small claim if I wanted to hold to account a small business taking the piss who would really feel a financial kick up the arse.
  3. Sorry, but trying to drum up a class action lawsuit over your misrepresented lot. Good luck on that score. Tbh you don’t need to seek much over this advice. You simply either instigate a small claim or you don’t & you don’t need a solicitor for that. Tbh it’s probably easier to suck it up & move on. In either case ensure you have followed & exhausted the AH’s complaints procedure & make sure you do it by email/writing.
  4. Mind you, perhaps I should add my stock is far from being in the first flush of youth or indeed performance orientated. I think a couple are so old they don’t even have engine management lamps
  5. Sounds about right & funnily enough there’s only been a couple of ‘dry’ forecourts near me. As for the “wreaking havoc” I think that’s a rather melodramatic description for numpties shitting themselves & joining the back of a queue simply because they’ve seen it (the queue). The other Sunday morning there was a modest queue to get into a local station - I drove 1/4 of a mile to the next station & I was the only punter there.
  6. Interesting because I’ve never had a single issue from using supermarket fuel & cant think of anyone who has. By the sounds of it it sounds very much like the problem is with the storage of fuel by your local supermarkets, or by their supplier.
  7. There is. The small claims court due to fraudulent misrepresentation. However I’m unsure how BCA would then view your account status.

    Cazoo losses

    Why? Is it poor parts coverage?
  9. Isn’t that standard auction house practice? How on earth any of these AH assurance schemes win awards is beyond my comprehension. Obviously not awarded by anyone who’s ever had any experience of dealing with obstinate AH staff or the foot-dragging of the schemes administrators.
  10. A third hand tale but a wagon driver claims the fuel ‘shortage’ issue is f.a. to do with driver shortages. He then whipped out his phone, looked at a job website for BP & said to my pal “Look, fuck all vacancies for drivers”. As I say, a third hand tale so don’t shoot the messenger .
  11. Why on Earth are you taxing cars for customers?
  12. Surely that’s a truer reflection. At the lower end of the market most of the cars that book trade at £3-5K are now making £4-6K. A much bigger rise percentage-wise & the CAP/Glasses aren’t keeping up at the moment - just like poor Joe Public who’ve now twigged there aren’t any cheap cars available & their pound now goes less further than it used too.
  13. The only surefire way of knowing if a vehicle in in trade is to phone the DVLA & they’ll confirm whether or not they can be taxed with a V62 at a PO. However in the case of two of your cars, as they are currently taxed they obviously aren’t in trade therefore cannot be taxed on a V62 at a PO.
  14. Try explaining to most they are getting ZERO MPG when they are sat in a queue & then look at their puzzled/blank expression.
