    • Well I don't really want to go to court but I will go all the way no point in giving up now!!!
    • Hey everyone, I am hoping I can get some guidance with a car I recently purchased.   I have been looking around for a newer car and thought I would check out those internet car seller folks.   I found a car I liked and the description said it had all the things I wanted, so I paid the deposit, applied for finance, which I got, and opted for a PCP contract, paid my deposit and got my order confirmed. The car was delivered on Monday 1st June. First I must say that overall I am really very happy with the car, it is almost exactly what I wanted, I am delighted with the general condition, the way it drives and would not be too keen on letting it go if I have no need to do so.   So, the first thing, it was just under 700 miles over the quoted mileage, and I know that's not a lot. Still, that's not the point, the number is excessive, considering the place it came from is only about 200 miles from me. I have spoken to them about the mileage. They said it was a clerical error, which I do not believe, they have however agreed to refund me for 400 miles, which I decided to accept as I figured at least they have agreed to pay for just over half of the miles and did not want to be too unreasonable about it.   The second thing, and this is the one that is really the stumbling block. The cars headline said: 'FORD FIESTA HATCHBACK 1.0 EcoBoost 125 Titanium X Navigation 3dr'. Though the full advert is no longer visible, part of it still is, https://www.buyacar.co.uk/ford/fiesta/fiesta-hatchback/1-0-ecoboost-125-titanium-x-navigation-3dr-73955 and this is the car I bought.   So after checking it over upon delivery, and going around it with the delivery chap, all looked fine, and I decided a little drive was in order.   So off I went to put some fuel in, and while at the fuel station figured I would check out the sat-nav and this is where the problem is, there is no sat-nav. I checked the book, there is no slot for the navigation sd card, no button to turn on the nav, aka, no nav, none.   So I emailed them, and the response I got was: 'Thank you for your email, and I am sorry to hear you are not fully happy with your new purchase. This vehicle was not advertised with Sat Nav, so I am unsure where you feel you read the description you have provided?' ... ... 'In regards to the description of the vehicle, I have checked this on the order form, and the finance documents that were both sent to you and signed and the description of the vehicles reads as FORD FIESTA 1.0 TITANIUM X 3d 124 BHP hatchback.'   So I have pointed out the fact that there was not only a headline stating that the car was Navigation version but further, down the page, there was also a mention of it.   I also said to them, despite me signing said documents, I felt no need to recheck it because the wording navigation appeared several times in the advert which was enough for me to accept it was a version with navigation.   I also said, the order form nor the finance documents also make no mention of other stuff either like climate control, automatic folding mirrors, infact they do no mention any features, only that it is a FORD FIESTA 1.0 TITANIUM X 3d 124 BHP hatchback, so I have refused to accept this as an excuse and an attempt to lay the blame for this mistake at my feet. I honestly thought I was purchasing a car with sat-nav, based on the information provided by them.   I am awaiting a call from them but they have so far today failed to get in touch so figure I would use this waiting time to ask some of the more experienced members about their thoughts on where I stand with this.   Am I in a position for example to ask that they fit sat-nav? If they ask for the car back and put me in a position with no car again how does this work out? Am I flogging a dead horse?   Any advice please would be very much appreciate.   Thanks all.

Hi everyone

 

Got a letter from Advantis yesterday telling me that I owe HMRC £688.09.

 

Well this was news to me as HMRC have never been in touch.

What is the best way to deal with this people?

 

I have however been chased by HMRC for the last 10 months wherein they were chasing me for a debt of £1300 because I had failed to submit a self assessment form.

 

Having never been self employed I had no reason to submit one.

The HMRC refused to accept all evidence of P60s and wage slips from my employer.

 

They did however send me a self assessment statement on the 7th January, received 18th January! cancelled all the alleged debts.

 

And lo and behold now I get a lovely letter from some numpty debt collectors for a totally different amount.

 

I'm just going to put together a "prove it" letter so any help would be most gratefully received.

 

Thank you

I have now received a letter from Advantis asking if the account is in dispute, I put that in capital letters on my letter to them. If so they need documentary evidence to give to their clients.

 

I did ask them for a full breakdown, accounts and statements and proof of what this amount was for. They have just said its for tax credits going back 4 years and have not provided me with the information I have asked them for.

 

What time period do I need to give them to provide this information? I don't believe its up to me to provide documentary accounts.

 

They have put the account on hold for 14 days but it has taken 8 days for the letter to reach me.

 

Any help and advise is once again gratefully received...thanks

Hi

 

 

Advantis have failed to provide any info that I asked for.

 

 

They are now telling me to appeal against debt direct to HMRC within 7 days

and for me to tell them which office I have sent it to.

 

 

As I have had no correspondence at all with HMRC about this alleged debt

would be difficult to know where to appeal to!

 

 

Advantis have said failure to tell them will result in their collections dep continue to contact (harass!) me!!

There is plenty of contact information for HMRC on the web, you just have to use google to find it.

 

Then write to the address that you find that deals with your particular issue.

 

You don't owe Advantis anything so you're wasting your time even thinking about them and simply encouraging them if you have been contacting them.

 

Ringing them is futile, they will rob you blind and you'll happily let them.

 

Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC. Deal ONLY with HMRC.
