    • 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 can't log into my account today with my PC, although it still works most of the time with my phone.

 

I keep getting a message about AOL being called Oath now and it says that before I continue it wants me to confirm I'm in the UK and to confirm their new privacy policy.

 

When I try to accept their conditions or manage my options, it says 'Oops something went wrong, please try again later.' Every time I try, I go through the same loop.

 

What am I doing wrong please? Thank you for any help.

I'm with AOL too HB and the problems I get connecting to them would have driven me to moving to another provider years ago if it wasn't for laziness and the thought of having to go to every website I've ever registered on and change my email address - all those sites where my login name is my email address..... :x

 

I got that page this morning as well and clicked my way through it and it went through OK for me, no error messages so I don't think there is an inherent problem in the message (which is AOL's version of the GDPR requests we've been getting from everyone ahead of May 25th).

 

I do get that error message though more often than I want to see it! I'm no techie but it appears to happen when there's a problem making a connection somewhere at the local end of connecting to AOL. Major AOL connection problems country/world-wide can be tracked on several sites but it doesn't seem to be related to anything major like that. So far I've always found that leaving it for a couple of hours and avoiding peak times that day self-corrects it. Life's too short to waste trying to discuss it with the useless AOL Helpline so I no longer bother to do that unless connection problem goes on for more than 24 hours.

In case anyone who does not know Yahoo was purchased by Oath. I believe that AOL was part of Yahoo so they will be the same

 

Yes, it says that on the page I get when I try to log in. I tried to log in to Yahoo and it doesn't know who I am. I think I need to ring aol, they were quite helpful last time I had a problem.

I seem to have lost the message asking me to confirm I want to stay with Aol.

 

This morning I managed to log into my email account and it started loading my messages but just kept whirring. It said I could click on something to use the Basic version of the site, but that didn't work.

 

I left it to its own devices and went and did other things and some hours later, it had finally stopped whirring and showed my emails. I'm praying that it will stay working now and not cut me off on the 25th as it threatened.

 

Thank you for everyone's help. :D

The message in post #15 is what I had, dx. But every time I clicked on OK - or manage options - I got the error message that said to try later.

 

I hope I'm past that stage now, I guess I'll find out tomorrow.
