car on finance -missed service

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Can I get some advice, please?

 

I brought a new car that is on hire finance just over a year ago.

I missed the first year of service.

there have been lots of things going on in my life and I completely forgot especially as the service timing has changed.

 

I have booked it for a service with the garage and they have told me that this voids my warranty and I should let the finance company know.

the finance will end at the end of this year and I want to keep my car.

 

I am mortified and really worried.

Will they charge me a penalty, will it affect my credit rating.

This has never happened to me before.

Garage won't do both at the same time.

The car hasn't much mileage on it.

I'm really worried:-(

 

What should I do?

Hello and welcome to CAG. People should be along later with advice for you.

 

What does your owner's manual say about servicing please and how late are you?

 

 

Edited to add: What do you mean about the garage not doing both at once please?

if the car is on HP there is no obligation to have it serviced annually as long as it is kept in good condition. As for the warranty they cna go whistle as Consumer Rights Act 2015 over rides any silly warranty that they may offer. It is of no concern to you that the supplier cannot claim from the manufacturer as they are still obliged to rectify any faults unless the fault is a direct result of not having the car serviced, i.e. oil filter clogged up causing engine to fail.

That isn't strictly true

 

I am assuming this is a PCP contract where you pay payments for a set time and then you can either pay the final GMFV (Guaranteed (Minimum) Future Value at the end, Or hand the car back, Rather than a normal HP contract where you make the payments and the car is yours at the end

 

If it is a PCP contract, And you hand the car back at the end, A missing service will affect the value of the car and you would face a bill when you hand it back, Just the same as if there was damage to the car, Or you had gone over the agreed milage

 

If you plan to make the final payment to keep the car, I can't see it having any affect other that reducing it value when you come to sell it

OP did state that it was bought on Hire Purchase.

OP did state that it was bought on Hire Purchase.

 

But also said he wanted to keep the car at the end, With normal HP that wouldn't even be a question, He also said Hire finance rather than hire purchace

 

But i could be wrong

I asked what sort of service the first year one was.

they said it is a basic one.

the second year is a full service.

 

I'm 7 months late for my first service and 4 /5 months early for the second service.

I asked if they could do both the ist year service 9 (whatever that covered and then do the full service). not sure what they would do totally.

 

I should find out what they cover.

I used to get a list of things that were ticked that they covered from my last garage.

this car is a different make so I don't know how they do services.

 

it's a hire purchase agreement.

i just looked it up

the car is in good condition and I have only just hit the agreed mileage allowed.

I only did half the mileage allowed in the year.

 

it's a Nissan

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
