I bought this car from a dealer in January (almost two months ago) and noticed the car emitting blue smoke from exhaust and later on from dashboard. I can only use the car on weekends therefore it took me so much time to notice this issue. The ABS sensor for one of the tyres also started malfunctioning within the first month (almost 300 miles) and the dealer had changed one of the ABS sensors before I bought the car so it could be the same tyre's sensor going faulty. I took the car to Halfords via my warranty provider who so far only confirmed the ABS sensor fault (it had taken me 5mins to find this out using my code reader) and need more time (and money of course) to find out what exactly is causing the blue smoke however they might strip off the engine. I had contacted my dealer almost 4 weeks (driving the car for the 5th or 6th time) after the purchase date and clarified my intention about the refund however he encouraged me to take the warranty route first but obviously after finding out what the faults are I wouldn't like to own this car any more. So far I have driven the car almost 500 miles, could anyone please advise if it is still reasonable to reject the car or shall I only insist on repair?
So i've purchased a 2nd hand BMW320i from a dealer. All was good until recently the car starts jerking violently. Ive sent it to KWIT- FIT and they couldnt find where the problem is, hence they advise me to bring it to the BMW manufacture. After the diagnostic test, they quoted me a 1600pounds replacement fee!!!!! The car was 5xxx pounds. Ive purchased it in october, and drove less than 3000miles. I've also tried to call the dealer but they refuse to take up any responsibility. The BMW manufacture told me the ABS wheel sensor for both rears and the rear drive shaft was corroded. I would like to get some advise as to what i should do!!!i am just a student and this replacement fee is a HUGE burden for me P.S: isit normal for the Rear wheel sensor or the Reer shaft to get corrosion? As its the interior of the car, could there be any other possible reasons leading to the corrosion?
When my wife drove my LR discovery for MOT in a big garage chain, all lights were off on the dash before MOT. But after MOT, ABS, HDC, TC and brake system lights are on, never off, radio also is not powered on. MOT failed for ABS light. I asked them to reset all lights. They said they followed the procedure, they are not responsible. Who should I complain to? Thanks in advance Kai
