  1. I wonder if someone can help me. My car has been in the garage since April 2016. I have been given all different dates when it will be ready. I have whatsapp messages to say it would be ready in February this year. Let me explain because I really need to understand what my legal right is as I though garages had to carry out repair within a reasonable period of time. In April last year my BMW 325i broke down. I was told it was the head block. At first I tried with no success to find a head block and then decided to opt for a part worn engine. I order
  2. Hi everyone! we bought an Audi A6 auto in September 2016 with a known gearbox problem. We found a gearbox on eBay (rare gbox code), and had it sent to us and fitted by our mechanic. It wasn't right and was leaking, the supplier took it back, repaired it, and sent it back out to us. It still wasn't right. Eventually the supplier said to send him the car (To Essex, we're in Birmingham) and he'd fix it free of charge. By this point we had paid him £1000 for the gearbox. He then said the ECU was a problem and to send him £350 to have the ECU repaired. He has

  4. A few years back I had a bit of a meltdown after my marriage failed and through a period of depression and "head in the sand" my financial dealings deteriorated and imploded!!! 3 years later I'm back on the straight and narrow and trying to rebuild my life.... and my credit file!!! There is a legacy of three items which are causing a fairly major issue with my ability to get a mortgage: 1.

  5. Hello everyone, I have a question regarding provision of heating in Scotland. I am renting a private accommodation and, as per usual, agent seems not to care, even though has been informed (emailed twice, now I am intending to send them a formal letter) the heating does not work properly. I have no boiler and only electric heating in the whole flat. Problems: 1) the radiator in the living room does not operate, tried all the switches that there are and it will not budge. (There is a small, fixed electric fireplace in the living room but it is only on/of
  6. I would like some advice please. I purchased a HP all in one PC in October 2012 and it was perfect and did everything I needed it to do. However in the beginning of October 2013 (whilst it was still under the manufacturers warranty) the screen was accidently chipped by one of my children. (this was not covered by the manufacturers guarantee as it was accidental damage). I took it into the Store and I was told it would cost about £200 at the most to repair it so I sent it away to be repaired with the Knowhow team and said to them if it was going to cost anymore to phone
  7. Hi Not sure whether I'm in the right section here or not, but I would like to rebuild my credit rating with the aim of getting a mortgage. You can read about my debts and history at http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?432514-settling-a-old-CCJ-from-CL-finance-for-old-HSBC-card-debt/page2 I'm going to wait until my ccj falls off my credit rating next month, in fact probably be Dec before I can do anything as I assume it takes a month for the credit reports to refresh after that (ccj ends on 10th of Nov! Yay!), but what is the best thing to do to ge
  8. Hi there Myself and my husband got into some financial trouble 5 years ago which lead to some defaults. As of next year all the defaults will be due to drop off our credit files. We currently have a mortgage with no arrears for the past 3 years. We really would like to move in the next couple of years and was wondering how long after defaults are removed will a lender consider allowing us to sell and buy? Is there mortgage brokers that WILL consider applications with poor credit? Thanks

  12. Hi, My wife and I agreed to purchase a car from a garage. After we test drove the new vehicle we gave the garage owner the key to our old car for him to review it. He looked it over but chose not to drive it. We arranged to collect our new car 5days later. We went to collect as arranged and were dealt with by another employee as the owner wasn't in. After we exchanged signed contracts and handed over the cash we thought the deal was done. However the employee asked a colleague to test drive our vehicle, he came back stating an ABS light was on and the Engine Management lig
