  1. Car Boots.-My experience so far-observing people talking and buying and selling.Four weeks now and still going but have learned a few lessons.And boy have i had some fun. And met people you would not believe perhaps to meet with many tales of the unexpected which i prise out of them. Well anyone who reads some of my threads it does not take long to realise old Tawny sometimes struggles a bit with today's modern world where things seem to cost so much. So tries anything to make a few quid.Many fail but some work if only for a while. Money is needed for the most basic things.
  2. Are you aware when visiting a car dealership and providing your name, you are discussed in sales meetings by name? Are you aware when you give your data to a car dealership that they can discuss you in other towns with other dealers in their network? Do you know that a record is kept and a file on you on every call and email you send in to the dealer? Are you aware this is kept and logged in a file on you? I support that dealers should allow you to OPT out from this and also make you aware when calling, emailing or making enquiries that you are informed on how your data, informa
  3. Hello guys, I hope you will be able to help/advice me on this one. I bought a a second hand car through the London used cars dealer at the end of July2015. After 31 days I noticed that there are some serious mileage discrepancies between MOT and service history booklet. I phoned all the garages from the stamped booklet and I found out that first six stamps, claiming to be a BMW garages, doesn't exist and that the numbers provided were answered by private people. I get back to the dealer asking for a full refund. It was rejected, given the reason of high mileage done on the car
  4. I p/x my renault megane to a local car sales and covered the remaining cost of the car i wanted with a cash payment. The car I bought was a 2007 ford focus TDCI. I was told the car had a full reconditioned engine and was of a good standard. I was also issued with 6month gold warranty form the garage which I was assured would cover engine and gearbox. After having the car a day I returned with a problem which was the inter cooler pipe which was fixed by the lads. 4 months later I returned again and the guys looked over it and then tried to charge me for a diagnostics and also gave me a pr

  6. HI, Thanks in advance for any help offered, and apologies if this post is not in the right place! I have recently started a car dealing business which is doing fairly well in the first few months. We buy privately & from auction and sell only online through car sales websites (auto trader etc). We do not have our own website yet but this is something we are working on. I am looking for a car finance company who work with independent dealer companies like mine but that do not require us to operate a forecourt. I have found that many finance companies only offer a service to f
  7. Hi all, Been a long time since I was around these forums, however searching Google this morning drew me here and I am glad it did to be honest. I have a car on finance (just over a year left on a four year agreement), and at some point over the coming months I would like to trade up to something newer, and something more practical (I currently have a Passat saloon that has done just over 100k, and could really do with a hatch or an estate). We bought the current car from The Car Shop in Swindon, and to be fair our experience wasn't bad - bit of a hike from where we are, and the
  8. Good morning... I took my 1989 Cavalier into a large chain of Vauxhall dealers in Cambridge for a hose pipe. I was only going to buy it and fit it myself but the service chap told me that the rubber combined with the oil could have become corrosive and it'd be better done in the workshop, free of charge seeing as it was such an old car and easy to work on! (Bonus, I thought! The dealership I normally use in Stapleford have been amazing with my old Cavalier and love having it in the workshop, normally giving me healthy discounts!). It came out with a hosepipe fitted but the Vehicle
  9. This is a re-post, as I'm having no response from the forum I first posted into. Apologies. I'm gutted. I bought a Disco 2 from a trader 6 weeks ago. Last week I started hearing a loud clicking from the engine and I took it into a reputable Landy garage. They've told me that "someone" has recently worked on the engine to "fix it up" and my crankshaft is completely knackered. They say a new engine is required. This is the advertisement which OFT have obtained from Autotrader: -->13th June: Car advertised in Autotrader as the following: 2001 LAND ROVER DISCOVERY 2.5 Td5 S 5 Seat 5dr
