Hi

 

 

has any body contacted watch dog on this problem as

we just got told by BMW that a noise coming from the engine was a hole in the flexi pipe and needed to repair it ASAP

 

having done this we now a light on the dash board ( engine management light and

now they're saying it's the timing chain ??

 

I have had the car 3 years and is only done 58,000 miles and

I drive it 20 miles monday to Friday for work and

I have put more in to this car than its worth really

 

I think I was sold a lemon as am for ever putting money in to it

 

I spent over £2000 last year in bills on it and

now this I read that all US mini have been recalled

 

why haven't the uk followed ??

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

They've heard of all the problems, the steering, the turbo and on and on.

 

It's called German Engineering.

After waiting in a reply from BMW

 

 

yesterday they have rang and

 

 

said they will do 100% parts and 80% labour as I have fu BMW history and

 

 

I complanied that its a rubbish car that's had ££££ spent on it in 3 years and

 

 

I have today payed them £220 for the full job which they quoted was £ 1100

 

 

so worth asking for a discount and saying about the us recall

That's actually a dammed good offer so take it and run. US recall won't matter and is frankly nebulous. Remember, manufacturers determine if there is an issue by repairs /1000 cars and you can only really say there is an issue if you can prove more than 0.3/1000.
