SOGA entitles you to a repair or replacement if the fault was there when the item was purchased.


If the item is less than six months old it is assumed to be faulty when purchased and down to the retailer to prove it is not (this is easy if it's been dropped, for example).


If it is more than this it is down to the buyer to prove the fault was there when purchased - normally in the form of a qualified engineer's report.


Taking a look at this, then there is no automatic right to anything - if Currys want to inspect the unit or send it back to the mfr, to decide the nature of the fault, they are entitled to do so if they are contesting the machine was faulty from the outset. For example, if they think the unit has been neglected, they need to prove this.


Maybe the bracket wasn't set up correctly. If you are sure it was faulty and Currys are contesting this you might need to obtain your own reports etc and take them to court. (They will probably then settle out of court as a goodwill gesture or something.)

The above post constitutes my personal opinion on the facts in the post compared with my personal knowledge of the applicable legislation. I make no guarantees of its legal accuracy. If you are in doubt seek advice of a legal professional specialising in the area concerned.

I use a Tom Tom and the bracket would take some hell of abusing to break.


You haven't had a reply back from the company yet so you will need that before you can take any action, but you can insist on a resonable time for the report / new arm to be furnished.
