    • Hi, I bought a car from Citroen dealer 'Robins and Day' on 21/06/2019, it was C4 grand piccasso 2016 with only 4400 miles on the dashboard. The caar started giving trouble every morning showing "gearbox fault, repair needed'. Its only started happening in the morning when weather satrted getting cloder. When I switch on the engine in the morning it is fine but as soon as I start reversing the car  then gearrrbox gets stuck on reverse gear which locks everything, unable to switch on or push the car back to a parking position to keep the road clear. Last thuursday morrning gearbox got stuck while reversing infront of a school, it was verry stressful be causing one mile of traffic.   Got the car recovered by RAC and taken to the dealer, diagonosis was booked for Friday the 18th october 7:30 am but they were not giving me any update until today afternoon that actuator may be broken. They now want to get authorisation from the extended warranty department of their headoffice, said once parts is ordered it will take upto 3 to 4 days.   I am a cab driver and I have already lost 7 days and I assume they are going to take another 5 days, in total around 2 weeks. They are taking too long because I have compait to ther headoffifor ruude and unproffessional service.   Can I claim my loss of earnings against this dealer?   Should I start the process to reject the car now as it is still within 6 months from the date of purchase?   I have been to the same dealer twice for other fault like dashboard touch screen getting stuck , also front and rear window heater geting activated even if I  dont touch the buttons. 2nd issues was car was making noise, they told me it was a bracket broken at the front pannel of the car due to someone hit the car ( it was someone hit the car in the parking lot, and brrren the front ffog light's trim) which they charge 200 ponds for replaciing the bracket, but problems still there.   I will appreciate foryour kind advice. Thanks in advance.      
    • Go on holiday with it Dump the iva (it should be ended by now anyway max duration is 5yrs!!)   Whos it with?? Sounds like youve been had blind!!   Get a list of the debts up Send everyone a CCA request!   Bet 90% you dont even owe
    • Yes no problem remember to do a witness statement for your partner or anyone else that was there if you intend to rely on their evidence or wish them to be able to speak at a hearing  will be posted within the hour cheers
    • Hi DX100uk   Thanks for your message and also that you remembered my issues   I am still in iva but not paid them for 3 months.   After my redundancy in Mar I had to pay them 18.5k and thought I was close to ffs but they advised that due to redundancy payment treated as windfall (lol) they were changing the due amount from 81% to 100%   I did find another job after 6 weeks but am on probation for 6 months but its not going well as I am stressed from iva and new job.   The doctor has signed me off for 2 weeks with anxiety & referred me to a councillor, also written a letter for me to fwd to iva asking they allow me to settle early.   So far my original debts were 74k but proven debt was 61.5k    With my payments to date (including redundancy) I have paid in 54k and my girlfriends family are so worried about me they are offering 11k as gift for ffs   Payplan were going to terminate my iva and said it could well result in bankruptcy ( I have a flat with a mortgage) but equity of about 80k which I am worried they will go after   I spoke to pp today telling them how stressful this all was and it may well be that I don't pass my probation ( I am 59 btw so was lucky to find a job so quickly) Sorry to burden you with all this but I always respect your advice and knowledge, and PP have worried me by going for the 100% and bankruptcy warning   Thanks in advance

I found out today by finding it in the local press that I've been taken to court over not notifying the dvla for change of ownership... This was on 12/5/14 ..but this was in my old married name (changed by deed poll in nov/11) and to my old address which I moved from in nov/12... I've sold all vehicles in my name by part exchange to reputable main dealers.... I don't know what's going on but am extremely upset that the local press and the court have demeaned my good character...anyone got any ideas?

I part exchanged my old car in February of this year. It was my responsibility to send off part of the V5 to the DVLA, and they sent me an acknowledgement slip saying that they had updated my records and I was now no longer the keeper of the old car. From memory it was something like section 9 of the V5 and it had to be signed by both myself and the dealership. The dealership I bought from made a point of making sure the section was signed and informing me that it was my responsibility to return it to the DVLA.

 

 

I can only suggest that you check to see whether or not you completed and returned the correct part of the form. If you did, then contact the DVLA to find out what has happened.

You also have a responsibility to update your details with DVLA, this i believe includes a legal name change by deed poll or in your case a marriage or civil partnership etc.

1000 quid fine for not doing so (Although you are not normally pursued if you update the details yourself without first being promoted by them or caught by them.

 

With that in mind, arguing for a set aside on the basis you did not receive the paperwork due to not officially informing them of your name change and eddress etc im not sure how that would go. Someone with more experience will be able to help.

Now I changed my name by deed poll and moved by nov 2012.

 

. Removal company lost a lot of paperwork but I did eventually find the v5 and sent it in,

 

I must of done because I taxed my car at my new address,..
