  1. My dad bought a used Peugeot 3008 from a main dealer. It had low mileage. He paid just under £7000 for it. The car came with a 3 month warranty. My dad has done around 600 miles in the car since he bought it. The warranty had expired only 2 weeks earlier. He took a friend to hospital which was a 200 mile round trip. On the way there the car suddenly lost all power and went into limp mode. AA came and said something was wrong with the injectors and he couldn't fix it. AA had to tow my dads car home. My Dad took the car back to the dealer. They said some of the injectors had
  2. I bought a Mercedes GL a couple of years ago from a garage who sold me a GOLD Car warranty. My Mercedes GL has a broken Front Diff and I have called in A1 approved to make a claim and they have REJECTED is sighting that it is 'general wear and tear'. The garage has confirmed to me that the part is deemed a a mechanical failure and premature in it's failing and NOT general wear and tear. I also contacted the car sales garage I purchased the vehicle from and they confirmed that the part if a mechanical failure. The garage have been in contact with A1 Approved to go over the br
  3. I brought a 3008 Peugeot from hippo motors in July they have me A1 approved warranty for 12 months and that warranty ain't worth the paper it's wrote on I collected the car 21st July from hippo motors from up north got back to London after a few days noticed there was a shudder to the auto gearbox took and had a few other things that needed sorting like CD player which the warranty did sort on the 10/08/2017 after an arguement with them and they tried to refuse to cover labour costs I had to involve the finance company to get them to pay for the work that was carried
  4. Hi, I purchased an induction cooker from a seller on eBay and the eBay listing said it had a 12 month warranty (purchased 13th December) you can no longer see the listing page but they delivered it to me and gave me an invoice with 12 months guarantee written on it and £240 paid (£190 for the cooker, £50 delivery). I was shown it working but they only showed me the front hobs. the first time I used it I noticed that one of the rear rings only works if you push down on it until it gets started and the other rear ring will only work while you push down hard on it (which makes it
  5. Hi all, A couple of years ago now, I purchased a Rockdoor (Front Door) via a installer recommended on Rockdoors website. The door cost well over £1000. After about 6 months the sash failed and was reported to the installer straight away, a few months later it was swapped with a new one. Great service. A couple of months later it happened again - the installer said, "Yes, the black doors do often fail, lets try another one". A few months later a new door was installed again. Now its failing again, after another few months. The installer who Rockdoor / GAP
  6. Hi I had a washing machine replaced under a warranty in 2015 because it could not be repaired. The replacement washing machine had its motor replaced at my expense 4 weeks ago and now it has stopped working altogether. If purchased directly from the retailer the machine would have cost £900, so it is not a cheap washing machine. I would expect it to last longer than 3 years. I have any rights to a repair or replacement machine? If so do I contact the retailer or warranty provider?
  7. Hi I bought a car from a dealer back in September I've been advised that the turbo needs replacing. I have 1 years warranty with the car the warranty provider is trying to claim that it is wear and tear. I have checked the policy booklet and the turbo is NOT amongst the items not covered on the scheme I have. My mechanic stated that the air intake was broken around the turbo area and the seal was broken in half, he stated that it looked like a botched repair previously done. I have sent the warranty provider an email threatening legal action with my findings a
  8. hi Long story - bought car 13/08/2018 2 weeks later lots of warning lights - car into AC who sent to Audi who advised needs ABS computer and part on back order - roughly 2k to 3.5k to fix AC have rung to say they're deciding whether they will just give me my money back. so my questions are? do they have a right to do that? I want that car, it took me ages to find it I'm in a hire car at the moment - I'm guessing will be better for them to put me in one of their vehicles so at least hire charges arent being added to their current bill Where do I stand legally - my rights. I've p
  9. Just bought a new washing machine from Appliances Direct. Advert said 10 yr parts warranty which is correct, but you must use their repairer-----£199 per call out charge !!!! This is of course avoidable if you pay a £4 / month insurance fee by DD. They also offer free washing tabs for 6 months---but try getting them. Anything that sounds too good to be true undoubtedly is.
  10. Hi guys, Bought a PS4pro at launch day, its always been a noisy sod, but thats normal apparently. 19months on, and it's just died. I played it at 9am, 10am I went to have some medicine. Came back to play at 3pm, and it wont come on. Dead. Tried unplugging it, safe mode reboot, everything recommended that does not involve taking it apart in any way. It's dead, apparently its a power supply unit error, something which has affected thousands of PS4's since release. Where do I stand on getting this fixed? My warranty is only 1 year, but what about the 2 year warrant
  11. I purchased a refurbished TV with inbuilt dvd from Tesco's Ebay seller. The sound wasn't the most perfect I'd ever heard but I just put this down to its being a cheap telly (normal price £119, I bought for £78). By the 5th-6th week I was having to turn the sound down to next to nothing and cover my left ear because it was literally painful inside the ears. I borrowed a friend's TV, which happened to be exactly the same model but only two weeks old. There was an undefinable lack of quality in the sound of mine when comparing the two, I sent my telly back to be repaired.
  12. Lay-Z-Boy sell reclining chairs with a15 year warranty on the frame. This warranty is a key selling point. My chair broke within the warranty period and they have been very difficult to deal with. Firstly, they insist on proof of purchase irrespective of how long ago chair was bought. Now, they want me to pay £60 for an engineer to take a look at the chair before they would consider my claim. They are now saying my warranty is void since the present owners of the firm only took over 2 years ago and the retailer who I bought the chair from is now out of business. Wide & Bert
  13. Hi All, Back in January 2015 my wife bought a car from CARSHOP, she took out their finance with Santander Consumer. While in the office with the Finance manager of Carshop she filled in all the forms and handed them to him. He entered them onto his system to get approval. After a little while he said that the finance company had come back and that it would only be approved if GAP and a Warranty was taken out, in his words 'to protect them'. Now this warranty and GAP insurance totals £1100 and went onto the finance. After reading about 'Forced Warranty' it seems that it
  14. We are currently having problems with an integrated dishwasher. Since buying it in Mar 2016, there have been several faults when it needed an Engineer to make the repairs with new parts. The current issue means yet another repair will be needed taking the total to 5 repairs in just over 18 months. I feel we've got a 'dud' unit and the manufacturer are trying to get it to limp over the March warranty expiry date. Ideally like to have it replaced since i have lost confidence in this machine and it's ability to be useful much after the warranty expires. What are my rights
  15. Hi, Everyone, first off, apologies if this is in the 'wrong' place, but was really unsure where to post this. step son purchased a bike from Halford back in Feb this year (2017) for £750, not a small sum, he has experienced a few issues, but more recently, he has been having issues with 'loose' pedal arm/spindle, I am not sure what the technical term is, the bits that go through the frame and the pedals are attached to! Well this part has become loose, he has been in a couple of times to have it tightened up, again today he had to take it in, the guy tha
  16. Hi, I wonder if anyone could advise me here on my next step as I am disgusted by the service I have received from Samsung. I bought a Samsung 8+ from carphone warehouse around 4 month ago for over £800 all of a sudden the volume button jammed, I did not drop it or anything, it just stopped working all of a sudden. I took the phone into my local repair centre who said it would be £40 to fix, but as it is still under warranty to contact Samsung and get it repaired for nothing. This is where the problems started. Firstly they send a courier round to pick the phone up
  17. I purchased 2x hiking sticks from Sports Direct 2 months ago. Whilst using them i realised one was longer than the other. Upon further investigation i realised one of mine was missing a piece to make it complete. Few days ago took it back instore asking for a replacement of the same product but was told that SportsDirect only offer 1 month warranty on all their products, even if they are faulty. They basically refused all service on the matter and was told something identical at a different store. Are they correct in only offering 1 month? As i thought warranties were supposed to be
  18. I bought a 12 mth warranty for over £2k from Audi 11 months ago. It was an expensive warranty but it had no excess and covered everything except service items such as tyres and brake pads etc.. I should say that I have had good experience with this same warranty product in the past; with a prior car purchase. The price also reflected the age and mileage of my vehicle. They quote newer, low mileage cars more cheaply than older, higher mileage cars... now 11 months down the line (I have met all the conditions of the policy on my side) I make a claim for a leaking rock
  19. My son bought a vehicle approx 6 months ago. After 1 week the vehicle broke down and it was returned to the dealer for repair under the warranty. They had the vehicle over one month and then it was returned. The same problem has occurred. The warranty has now expired but the fault on the car was quite a major one and I believe the work should have had some form of guarantee but the dealer is refusing to provide information on the work carried out and where the repair was completed staying that due to data protection they can not provide this and that they do not keep records. This all so
  20. I have a surround-sound headset which has developed a fault and apparently the headset has been out of production for some time so the manufacturer has offered an alternative headset as replacement. I wasn't given the option of repair (their warranty covers replacement or repair). So this is where it gets annoying/silly. The headset is proper surround-sound with a microphone and a high quality desktop volume control. The replacement they suggested is a stereo headset, without microphone and no volume control! They don't make a surround headset any more so can't offer like for like or
  21. Hi all! Want to get my details in line ready for tomorrow when I am going to take my 20 month old HP Pavilion notebook back to PC World to see if I can get this power jack fixed. The port (on the laptop itself) has been loose, and now come apart, and the internal plastic spacer keeping all the pins straight has fallen out. This has been a problem since May 2017 but I was awaiting a response from HP which never came. It does still charge however the pins are highly likely to get bent now the spacer is not present. It's normally used on a table with no stress on the jack
  22. Hi! I bought a used car last month with 3 months warranty. The other day the head gasket was blown. The dealer said it will cost £320 to sort BUT wants me to put up £100 of the cost. Any advice welcome, why am I expected to pay?
  23. I Bought a Miele washing Machine in 2010 with a 10-year Parts & Labour waranty. A month ago, it began clunking during the rinse cycle. I called Miele, to book an engineer, & was told by the advisor, "if we can't repair it, we'll replace it." An engineer arrived last week, diagnosing a broken drum. The machine has only performed 1,000 hours use in 7 years, which is extremely low. I have Polished stone on the kitchen floor, & the engineer advised that despite laying protective coverings, the floor would likely be damaged during the repair, due to the weight of the drum assembly.
  24. Hello forum. I'm looking for some advice please I'm in dispute over my alloys on my 15 plate Vauxhall insignia, hopefully you can see an attached picture of one of my 4 alloys, all 4 are in this condition, Vauxhall warranty are refusing to replace these saying it is wear and tear. In my opinion they are blistering and have been told so by an independent dealer. Thankyou in advance group.
  25. I know a little bit about the Sale of Goods Act and have found out that it has since been replaced by the Consumer Rights Act. We purchased a Smart TV from Currys PC World in December 2013 for £550. Over the last few weeks it has started to develop a fault where towards one corner of the TV (top edge towards the right) there is a foggy dark patch. This is mostly visible when there is a white background. My questions are therefore: 1. As the TV is now 3 years 8 months old is this too long to expect to be able to get it repaired/replaced via the Consumer Rights Act ? - How
