  1. Totally agree, its not ideal when it comes out of reverse as we live on a hill and I've lost count on how many times I've nearly rear ended the neighbours car. We have sent rejection emails and recorded letters to the finance company (Motonovo) and the original dealership on Thursday but all has been quiet so far.
  2. Evening all, My parents purchased a very expensive tan Italian leather suite from Leekes around 3 years ago. Over the last few months the colour has been coming off the suite and there are mass swathes of white patches all over the sofa. Even on areas that your not sitting on the colour is coming off and the cushions have been collapsing on the suite. Having spoken to Leekes we had an independent sofa expert come out and look at the sofa, he confirmed it was a manufacturing fault and the sofa was never sealed correctly when it left the factory. Leekes have offer
  3. Thank you both, i'm going to fire a letter off to the dealer in the morning. I've read through the Autotrader article and I am going to ask for the cost of the privacy glass and the film tints back plus interest. The dealer thought just having the films refunded was "deeply unfair" according to the sales manager so i'm not expecting much. We are not really interested in rejecting the car as its a pain in the a**e to get another diesel Zetec S but I will if I have too.
  4. Hello All, Looking for some advice about a new Ford Fiesta we purchased from a ford main dealer. When I started my initial negotiations with the salesman, he told me the car we wanted available, and that the car came with factory fitted privacy glass and upgraded alloy wheels. After collecting the car I noticed that one of the rear trim panels was loose above the window. Whilst attempting to reattach the panel I noticed that the panel was in fact damaged. On closer inspection I also noticed that the glass was not totally black like our Focus, but had a plastic film placed over all
  5. Hi Conniff, The engine cost was just under 2000. I've been talking to him via email and I get the impression he just doesn't want to know. Thanks Dan
  6. Hello, Some advice needed from fellow CAG members. I'm going to avoid mentioning brands/companies at this stage until I see whats what. We had a major engine issue with our car back in September. Our mechanic who we have used for years gave us some options on what we could do with the engine. I decided that the engine should be fully re-manufactured at a specialist and he would take out/refit the engine. Our garage took out and then refitted the engine. We first had issue with it after the mpg dropped significantly, then it was dumping diesel all over the drive. Our mechanic fo
  7. Well National has admitted liability on this and is trying to sort the car through insurance. As mentioned in my original post the oil filter was not fitted correctly and all pressure to the top end was lost. Turbo is oil lubricated and so is the top end so that's why it's knocking as it was oil starved.
  8. Thank you Conniff, the car is a Diesel and a motorway miler. I have drafted a letter and will update you on what they are arranging to do.
  9. Hi Conniff, I still have the invoice and I have copied it numerous times, when calling head office they have stated that "he probably just booked out the wrong one". I just can't understand how they can say that, when that filter was changed the day after the oil pressure issues vanished. I also have a report from the RAC stating that the oil pressure light was on when they recovered the car and a photograph of the dashboard showing it as being on. Madly enough I also have a photo of the dashboard on the morning before as I was uploading my MPG on the car to my excel spreadsheet!! T
  10. Hey Guys, Major advice needed, I have had my fingers really burnt at a National garage after an oil and filter service. We took the car in after having no problems at this garage previously, car had the oil and filter changed and was given back to me. I hadn't even driven off the forecourt and the oil pressure warning came on. Took it straight back and was told not to worry as it was full of oil, again back out and light was still on. Took it back and was then told don't worry they'll speak to Audi in the morning as it must be a sensor that needs resetting. Took the car off the forec
  11. Checked the credit report and Lloyds still owns the debt. Lloyds we're charging interest on the file up until August 2010 then it was defaulted. Loan was originally for 40 months ,It wasn't paid for nearly 3 years so now we are catching up with all the payments on the file.
  12. Hi All, I'm trying to sort through my partners finances and I've finally got around to looking through all the paperwork Lloyds Bank has sent us. First one I am attacking is the Lloyds Loan taken out in 2005. A few key points Original loan amount was £3500 Interest for loan is £949.20 Total amount repayable was £4449.20. Lloyds have sent us a reconstituted credit agreement with no signatures and in a different address where the loan was originally applied from. I have also worked out the interest charged on the account from all the statements we have been sent
  13. Thanks so much for the help so far. I will be sending CCA to Moorcroft and Robinson Way and the SAR to Lloyds. For the blackhorse finance credit agreement there was a CCJ issued on the 28.10.07 then another for the 08.11.09. This debt was at one point being dealt with by 3 collection companies. The only reason why the second CCJ came about it because i didnt have a clue who to pay. Whats your thoughts on the 2 CCJ's?
  14. Hello, I need some help regarding some agreements that I have with various DCA's. Being young and naive I had taken out a credit card, loan and car finance with lloyds tsb/blackhorse back in 2006. Defaulted on them all and ended up going through a number of different DCA's for payment. Ive been paying these debts now through Moorcroft and its dawned on me after reading through CAG that i could have paid fees and charges that i should not have. I don't for once dispute that I took out these debts and i'm im not trying to get out of paying them. After reading th
