    • 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.

I have received the following response to my complaint regarding Barclays Additions Account

You have held Additions on two separate occasions and Additions Plus. Please provide your recollection of each point of sale.

I can see your account was downgraded in error from Additions to a fee free account with an overdraft. Please confirm why you requested the account be upgraded to Additions again.

Please confirm why you took the Additions plus

Please advise why you retained the upgrades.

I originally took out the Additions account so I could have an overdraft. I knew I would always have an overdraft with Barclays and this was the only account I could have. Each time I would ring them to request more overdraft or they would suggest that I take out a loan to pay off my overdraft. I would always do as they said so I could to keep my overdraft.

If they had told me that additions had been taken off in error during one of these phone calls I would probably agreed for it to be put back on.

The same goes for upgrading to Additions plus

(I am being so honest with you that when I am reading it back I realise how desperate I was then)

They have given me 7 days to reply.

Really I could do with help as to how I reply to their letter

Thank you

Chris

Be creative.. Why not talk on the phone to them. A complaint handler usually gives a telephone number to get hold of them on.

 

Its easier to word how you feel over the phone.

Hi Sir,

 

Don't worry about them wanting a reply within 7 days. Take your time to reply properly and fully.

 

Can you post here what you said to the bank, that prompted their reply in post #1 above.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you

In brief I asked for them to look into my Addition charges as when I started with Barclays I was told I could only get an overdraft if I had an Additions account and I wasn't told that there was any other account I could have

Hi Sir,

 

I would only reply to them by letter. Unless you record the tel con, you have no proof of what's said or agreed by either party.

 

Draft a letter and post it here for advice before sending.

 

The letter should be brief and reply to the points they raise, like :-

 

Whenever I asked for a loan to clear my overdraft, I was advised to take the Additions option that provided an overdraft.

 

I was told I was more likely to get the overdraft I needed than get a loan approved.

 

I was not told of any other options that would help me clear my overdraft.

 

Etc ...........

Hi Slick would something like this do

I originally took out the Additions account so I could have an overdraft. The Additions account was the only one offered.

Whenever I requested a further overdraft I was advised to take the Additions option that provided an overdraft.

When my overdraft got to a certain level I was advised to take a consolidation loan but if I kept the Additions account I could keep my overdraft limit.

Additions plus was taken for the same reasons too, I was not told of any other options that would help me retain my overdraft

Hi Sir,

 

Can you tell us how the a/c was changed from Additions to a fee-free a/c with an overdraft.

 

And why did you then agree to change it back to Additions a/c.

I was hoping to sort this with just a reply. I am sure if I had agreed to have additions back on my account, I am sure it would have been at the same time as requesting further overdraft or loan etc

hopefully...how much roughly do you think you are out (ie if they put in the position before the claimed missell?)

Dont know

:) fair enough. but, if you're going to pursue, then shld have a rough idea of what your loss could be.

if its not alot, then they might just pay out something eg a nominal sum as a policy of appeasement. if thats what you're after.

If you want to challenge them, you need to do the work, ie send the bank an SAR and get whatever evidence you can.

 

At this stage, I think your chance of success is poor as the fee-free a/c was changed back to Addintions.

 

SAR is they only way you'll improve your chance of success.
