    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I thought that:eek:

 

Hey the dm willing to do that for everyone then?:roll:

 

Worthy of a complaint to advertising standards isn't it? Seems little more than an advert to me including the 'sales' number below the article and giving clear guidance as to the sort of value he'd accept. :mad:

Please don't wish it on all of us. Some of us a genuinely sympathetic, attempt to be helpful and 'fell into' the job but don't really want to be causing misery.

A debt collector for my sins; I hope any advice I can offer of the industry can help. It might help me sleep at night.

Fair enough JP, respect the fact that unfortunately there is a need for bailiffs, unfortunately as generally it means someone is in trouble but thats a very simplistic approach, some people you just can't help.

 

The truth of CAG is that if the entire financial industry had any respect for itself, the law of the land and customers that ultimately it cannot do without there would be no need for CAG at all.

 

Good to hear you have morals, try your best where you can etc and clearly do your work with dignity and self respect. I may get shouted at for this but that should be commended given the fact that on CAG we're very quick to pick up on those who operate at the other end of the scale.

 

Fairs fair after all and I have no qualms with any creditor who abides by all the rules. Only fair they can recover their money in those sadly unusual circumstances.
