Hey all,

 

I have a Meriva that is suffering with the well known EPS problem, however after trying to get Vauxhall (both dealer and Vauxhall themselves) to address it they have failed to do anything. I wrote to the dealer and had no response and sent a copy to Vauxhall who acknowledged the letter but have also failed to reply (despite their statement in their response that they would!).

 

I've pretty much had enough of them as a company and am 2 days away from submitting a county court claim for the cost of the work needed so I can get it sorted.

 

I need some help please with the particulars of claim with particular refernece to the Latent Damage Act 1986. Can any one help or advise where I need to post this request?

 

I'm also going to write to Watchdog and the local press on this and tell them about the poor/no response from Vauxhall - hopefully they will get a another shaming on national TV!

Hi rebel11,

 

You seemed to have moved the thread to 'debt problems' - surely this is the wrong place?

 

Regards

Hey peeps - hopefully you can help?

 

Can you review my draft Particulars of Claim and advise if they need changing or tweaking? I'm wanting to submit my claim asap.

 

Thanks:

I have received a call from Vauxhall today to take the car it to have the work done.

 

Because of their delay I wrote to watchdog and the local press to tell them about the experience so far but hopefully if Vauxhall come good I wont need to persue this any further.

Nice to see that it is sorted. As an aside, I don't think that the latent damage act is relevant, this applies to negligence. I can't see that is relevant here; you'd want the SOGA only. There are also some other odd things in the POC. If you need to go back down that route come back and we'll have a look.

Hi Kraken1, hopefully it will get sorted.

 

The reason I quoted the latent damage act was due to the info given under a posting/campaign on the Vauxhall Owners Network about Meriva EPS problems (cant post a link yet).

 

I'm not sure what to POCs should contain to be honest, just cobbled it together from another expample I've seen elsewhere for a different situation. Hopefully I wont need to revisit this but would appreciate your elp if I do. Many thanks.

 

Merv.
