  1. It's my fifth Scooby, so not exactly new to the brand. The newest I had was three months old, the oldest being this one. Just wouldn't have expected an engine to go on that low mileage. My last one had over 110k miles by the time I got rid of it, and was as good on the last day I had it as the first.
  2. I bought a used car from a seemingly reputable dealer in December 2019. It was a 2012 Subaru WRX STI, it was fairly priced and the mileage was low for it's age (52k miles).

  5. I took out car insurance on the 7th January, choosing to pay monthly. The policy was approximately £600 a year, and payments were for £50 a month. I sent my proof of no claims off as requested to the local office and heard no more. The next payment came out of the account on the 23rd January for another £50 as expected. Then on the 5th February we get a letter saying the insurance has been cancelled due to not receiving the no claims proof and we owe a further £75 (apparenty £50 of this was for a cancellation fee they imposed) We did call the local office and spoke to an
