  1. I'm confused here. One comment says tread below 1.6 mm and other comment says fault is on inner side wall---which is it?? Also, any half decent dealer should not be selling a 13K car with tyres remotely near end of life. Had I seen an MOT advisory prior to purchase, it would have been a condition of sale that advisories be rectified.
  2. Please settle argument with local garage . Lady bought car from dealer and engine blew up about 3 months later. Garage guy says Trading Standards says dealer only responsible for first 28 days, but on this form it suggests the CPA gives up to 6 months protection. What is the precise time For CPA protection ??
  3. Can you prove to dealer that they are the tyres that were on car at time of sale ?????: Many dealer warranties exclude glass & rubber.
  4. Goods purchased in store and paid by CC. No problem with refund by Morrison. Like many of my generation, being stonewalled is not acceptable.
  5. Morrisons supermarket sell clothing under the Nutmeg brand. Generally, these goods are of decent quality and not too expensive. There is a fairly wide range. Like other supermarkets, their sizes should be taken with a large pinch of salt. Unfortunately, Morrison's merchandise these clothes through an outfit called Deeset. When things go wrong then your troubles really begin. Deeset won't reply to emails. They operate a confounded automatic phone system where your call is put in a queue. EVENTUALLY, you receive a message that no one is available to take your call. Their shop floor workers are not allowed to order goods in for you and not allowed to phone head office. It's inconceivable that a prestigious company like Morrison's should be involved with an outfit like Deeset, which does no good for Morrison's image.
  6. You can still claim via Visa Debit card, but bank will resist and say you can't. Contact Visa direct if bank won't help.
  7. You may have something there re windscreen cleaning products. I have exactly the same problem
  8. Thanks for your usual helpful input Hammy.
  9. Many thank you's for that DX. Will follow this up.
  10. Would you accept 34% of your wages??? My claim was raised through the "Simple Procedures" part of Small Claims. I followed the courts instructions to the letter, and then this sheriff makes a mistake in the papers he read. He failed to read the whole claim as set out in their form, but instead focused on an invoice relating to the claim but NOT part of my claim.
  11. On his site people are frequently advised to follow CRA and take errant traders to the small claims court. Success rates appear to be most encouraging. Yesterday, I took a rouge motor trader to a SCC at the local sheriff court, and because of a major error by the sheriff, my claim was reduced by over 66%. What can i do ? Scottish Law
  12. Enough is enough before I land in the loony bin. Going back to big tub and washing board !!! New machine has started to vibrate really violently and it sounds like a car with the big end bearings well gone.
  13. And so it came to pass, and the white van men arrived unannounced as I was having breakfast. This time they call themselves Expert Logistics. They unpack a beautiful black washing machine and bring into house, whereupon the young lad set about installation. There has been a lot of crossing of fingers and touching of wood, but it appears that, at long last I have a new washing machine that actually works as it should. Hope it doesn't break down as I am informed a call out charge is £119 !!!!!
  14. I can't buy the shirts I want from the popular internet stores ( or local shops). After searching the net more fully I came across the C&A website. This website is in English and displays a selection of shirts I want to buy and in my very large size. I tried to order a couple. When I got to destination address (what country) I discovered C&A don't deliver to the UK. Deliver to nearly all Europe. What happened to their UK stores?? Matalan sell Morley shirts that are designed to suit me but only go up to 2XL. Is there a C&A Outlet shop in UK.??
  15. You aint not never gonna believe this- --The Panther van had it's tyres slashed during the night and Mc Connachies (pert of AC !!!) could not repair it timeously (in this day & age) They didn't see fit to hire a van for the day?? So, next morning AO delivered my new machine -- -great, and the guys agreed to remove the faulty machine. Ah Ha, new machine was badly damaged when packaging removed, so had to be taken away. Eventually, a subby of Panthers came to uplift the faulty machine, and were not happy chappies when told to uninstall. One guy phoned his boss to see if insured to do this work?? then phoned again to say water not turned off- --he didn't know it was shut off at a valve. You couldn't make this up could you!!!!!! AO is bringing another new machine on Friday - --just have to wait & see what state this is in when unpacked. So we have just to wear our manky clothes for a few days- ---but worse-- -Wife can't have a bath as Fife Council don't have the funding to send a social worker out to bathe her since she became disabled. Anyone want to know the real meaning of hassle & stress ????
