I wonder, in the light of recent trouble, if there is enough public support to have the Dept of Trade look into the whole used car warranty system.

The story to date is that I had trouble with the door locking system & reported this to the warranty company. They instructed me to take car to garage for check & after garage report would consider whether to authorise repair.

First problem I disagree with is that I had to pay for diagnostic check (£90)---WHY---it's not my fault if modern mechanics don't have experience to detect problem!

However, garage reported a fault found by computer to warranty company who BINGO actually authorised the fitting of a new part.

New part fitted but fault (intermittent) is still there. Garage won't carry out further investigation unless I pay for it and say warranty won't cover repair if it is found to be an electrical fault. It's a French car, so I'm 99.9% sure it's either corrosion or a damaged wire.

So, it would appear that in this instance, that the warranty company are going to have to pay for parts & labour for a part that was not required---all thanks to a computer.

Given the number of complaints about warranty companies, does anyone think it's worth my while trying to take this further???

Does not matter what waranty you have, be it a car or a computer


So many get out clauses and money for old rope


I got burned by Welcome Finance and their so called extended warranty Bovine Excrement


Finance companies and business will not complain as it goes onto the finance agreement and compounded by the APR


Everyone wins except the consumer sold a lemon of a financial product
