    • However having had a quick look at the consumer rights act, I see that it doesn't seem to apply if you have bought second-hand goods sold at a public auction and you had the opportunity of attending the same person – section 2 (5) Unless someone has some better ideas, I'm not sure what you can do.
    • I'm trying to understand your story because is not completely clear. You bought the car auction and you were aware at the time of the purchaser there was an ABS fault. Subsequently an ABS fault developed both this was a different fault and not of the type that have been flagged up at the auction. Is this correct? If you bought the car knowing that there was a particular ABS fault then I don't think you have any comeback. However if the fort which subsequently occurred is not the one which was flagged up at auction then you may be in a better position
    • Hearing adjourned until 23rd March. Looks like the other dates remain the same so I'm gonna have to send in a witness statement regardless of whether CEL plan to continue with this.
    • I'm a new victim of Junction City Cars so called dealership. I've bought a car from them, picked up the car from the address in Bradford /Shipley. Lots of issues with my purchase. Apparently they don't have a billing address. I've been to their address found on autotrader, it is the Andrew's Page shop in Leeds. The address in Dewsbury does not exist either, because the special delivery letter sent by us was returned back to me. They have no any traceable address or any address for correspondence. My advice to everyone who's been scammed by these  people to proceed with your investigation and complains to all the authorities possible,   starting with consumer rights(phone number 0345 404 0506), autotrader customer security (phone number 0330 303 9001) and even police or crimestoppers. Anyone wishing to buy a car from them please research first and don't believe any positive reviews they are all made up by 'Adam'.
    • I bought a car from an auction in Jan 2019 and the car engine fault light indicated there was a problem with the ABS. It went to an Audi Dealership for a diagnostic scan to identifying exactly the problems with this car.   One of them was a faulty ABS system which had the component, namely the ABS hydraulic pump identified as being faulty. Since then, this has been independently addressed by a non-Audi dealership but now a new fault code  was recorded that hadn’t been formerly discussed.   The code 01130 ‘Operation: Implausible signal’ declared itself and is related to the 45F2 ABS AUDI UK recall over a year ago. If put this to the dealership who did the diagnostic scan that previous campaigns that have now closed are looked at they will find that this is in fact an Audi recall fault and as such needs to be addressed courtesy of AUDI.   In fact, the same recall fault was listed as an item of charge. When I asked why the ECU had to be changed as well and told it was ‘because the ‘ECU is one and the same unit as the hydraulic pump and the two are replaced because of the way it is constructed’.   The matter has been raised with AUDI UK who tell me that having originally fixed the fault at the time of the initial recall on this car, the campaign open for 6 months was now closed and they wouldn’t be honouring the recall.   As AUDI pointed out when this fault was first identified, this was a serious safety issue and as such I informed the Trading Standards. They were satisfied that the safety issue had been addressed but had no redress as the campaign was now closed.   I was informed the 6 months was not set impartially but at the company’s discretion. They believed the Motor Ombudsman would resolve the issue.  This advice and the state of deadlock lead  me onto reporting it to the Motor Ombudsman but they flatly said they didn’t deal with recalls and ask Citizens Advice.    I feel that a safety recall on a fault is an issue indefinitely if it exists as the fault lies in the design and construction which is implied as the manufacturer foots the bill. How is it that after 6 months they are absolved of accountability? Is this negligence on behalf of Audi? I am not sure why the Trading Standards don’t see this as an issue apart from it being a ‘legal matter’.    What advice would you give me on going forward?

To be honest, I saw it as no news is good news.

 

Until the result had come through, my jobsearch had been suspended.

 

The assessor gave me 0 points and said that I was in good health.

 

Somehow my several doctors letters did not count for anything!

 

Anyway, I asked for a mandatory reconsideration on Wednesday so I have braced myself that I could be waiting up until June for a response.

 

Their guideline response time is 21 days but it is better not to set myself up for an early response.

 

I try to look at things like that but I like to know whats going on and do you still get ESA payments while the reconsideration is taking place?

I'm on Universal Credit. My payments continued during the assessment period.

 

The additional element did not.

They should continue to pay you through out the consideration period as well, it's unfair to leave people without money like that :-x

Maybe my response did not make sense.

 

I got the basic elements of Universal Credit that I was entitled to but not the additional allowance for those in the Work Related Activity Group.

Is it true the longer it takes to get the WCA results the less chance you have of been awarded ESA?

I think you are heading into the realm of speculation.

 

Responses take as long as they take. A couple of reasons for the length of delay.

 

1) The Decision Maker has a varying case load.

2) The Decision Maker may be conducting various enquiries in relation to the claim.

 

It is better that you direct these kinds of questions at the DWP

i was placed in the WRAG some months ago and had my first appointment at JCP a few days after,

this was back in April and my work coach said she'd contact me in about 6 weeks time with another appointment but i'm still waiting.

 

Just wondering is it normal to go months without hearing from your work coach as i'm a bit worried?
