    • 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? 
    • Hi TP,   The good news is - You don't have to prove anything !   You've already explained your position to Harlands and need do or say any more.   Just ignore them.
    • Unfortunately I had a nervous breakdown and signed off work. Placed on heavy medication and had to deal with a repossession order and other debts therefore this wasn’t a priority at the time and there’s only so much you can expect others to do on your behalf.    I am not quite sure how to proceed other than point out the points we’ve discussed with the creditor and if they refuse to cooperate instruct a solicitor though I gave to keep that cost to the minimum.    I appreciate your assistance. 
    • Hi    Another point i have noticed on Page 2 of the JK1 exhibit, the marketing box is 'unticked'.  As a rule of thumb if i apply or do anything online i always tick the box for no junk mail! This form is definitely fabricated by them and is not the original.

Missed a few payments?

 

When did you take out the Loan?

 

How many payments have you missed?

 

How much did you pay in October? (A token amount, a full monthly payment or more?)

I take it you didn't notify the log book loan company your change of address, or lack of one.

You missed payments and they will of wrote to you at your last known address.

 

Unfortunately they don't have to let you know after you've defaulted.

They are the legal owners of the car.

The only good thing Is you have 14 days to pay them off before they sell the car, auction costs and recovery costs can be added.

If the vehicle sale does not cover all of this they can come after you for the shortfall.

 

Best advice is either pay them off to get car back or let it go.

 

 

 

Tho is froma quick search on internet for log book loans.

 

Logbook loan repossession

 

If a logbook loan has defaulted, the creditor can repossess your car. They must wait a minimum of five days after the account has defaulted before they can take the vehicle away. They don’t need to take you to court to do this.

 

They’ll usually tow away the vehicle. There are no limits on the time they can do this, so they may arrive late at night or very early in the morning. This is normally done by specialist debt collectors or bailiffs (enforcement agents), and they can use force to repossess the vehicle.

 

Extra charges will usually be added to your debt to cover the costs of removal.

 

After the logbook loan company has taken your vehicle they’ll auction it. If the sale price at auction isn’t enough to cover the whole debt, you’ll have to pay the ‘shortfall’. You can treat this like any other non-priority debt, like credit cards and personal loans, and offer to pay it back in instalments at an amount you can afford.

 

If the sale price of the vehicle is more than the total you owe, the difference must be paid back to you.

Also may i add i never received a default notice either

 

Given that you were of no fixed abode, what is more relevant is if they sent the DN to the address they held for you. If they did that and you didn’t receive it because you hadn’t given them an address at which you could have received it, they’ll have met their obligations.

 

But my previous address was giving me my mail

 

My prediction; if you ask them for details of any DN : they’ll note it was sent out to the address they held for you. By all means ask (Just in case they didn’t issue a DN!), but don’t hold your breath.

So you didn't inform them.

Why?

 

Maybe because you didn't want them to find out that their car is now no longer attached to the address they hold for you and your in default.

 

Its of little consequence anyway.

They wrote to you at the last known /given address.

They have fulfilled thir obligations.

Redirect mail to for example Ford fiesta AAA666Y parked on High Street anytown?

 

Come on sgtbush Royal Fail wouldn't accept that, OP was Homeless. But yes if they sent DN to old address they the have fulfilled obligations. Op needs to negotiate to get back personal property in the car if possible before it is sold if cannot afford to pay .

 

If someone is living in the car, or a traveller in a camper/caravan bieng chased for a CTax LO from their home before they were evicted or left it to go travelling then it is usually exempt from bailiff seizure, not sure about Logbook loans though


We could do with some help from you.

Well I'm afraid that's all the time they have to keep it before auction.

How much is the outstanding balance on the loan and how much is the car worth?

 

Remember auctions are very much cheaper place to buy the car so dont rely on retail price.

 

I'm just worried that they will come after you I their is any shortfall.

repo agents are powerless they are not bailiffs and have ZERO legal powers

 

bailiffs don't do LBL repos unless ordered by a court.

then you couldn't have prevented the repo if it was on the road and not gated and/or locked away on private land

 

if you want the car back your only option would be a time order and as this is 2 weeks old already you need to be very quick with it

From a quick search your car I prob worth around what you say.

Bear in mind auction prices are lower than retail but from what you Say you owe to the value at auction of your car I think it should cover it and you wont be chased for a shortfall.

I know that its not the easiest thing to go through but at least your going to come out the other side not owing them money.

Chalk it down to experience, re group and get yourself another car when you can.

Save for it, dont get finance if you can help.it.

 

Also Stay away from log book loans. Changes in legislation are coming but until they do they are no better than loan sharks in my opinion.
