    • 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.

Wizz air introduces new cabin bag charges.

 

 

If anyone is confused about why some airline companies have reduced card surcharges following the

OFT investigation,then even more confusing is how some are seemingly already taking measures to

recoup any shortfalls by introducing new baggage charges.

 

Now traditionally the major airlines have included hand baggage within the base ticket.

Up until 9th July Wizz Air did so too...and 10kg at that.

 

Today they announced their so called "New Cabin bag policy"

 

So for those who are wondering,Wizz are now defining between a small cabin bag and a large cabin bag.

 

A small cabin bag is what they deem as 42x32x25cm or smaller.The weight allowance of 10kg remains the same.

This size bag will be free from further baggage charges from 9th July.

 

 

Any bag that exceeds this size,will now cost 10 euro.

But it still must be the same size as the prev limits for fitting into the overhead bins.

 

Wizz say they are introducing this new baggage policy as a trial to "Incentivise passengers to bring smaller baggage

aboard the aircraft "

 

This seems odd since there are very few passengers who board flights with only a laptop bag.

 

Wizz claim this trial on selected routes will improve on time performance and result in better travel experience...

although they are not so quick at how they have arrived at this amazing feat of ingenuity.

 

They add;

 

With fewer large items onboard, the cabin will be less crowded and the boarding process will be easier and faster for the benefit of all our passengers.

 

Now assuming that the smaller baggage will all be under the seats (which they tell) that means LESS space around the seating.

 

No I am afraid I am not convinced at all.

Even if they were to scrap the £14 per return card surcharges...they will still be 6 euro in pocket.

 

Nice try.

 

They have not updated their website either with this as of 16.49 on 9th.July.

The notification has gone out by emails.
