    • The 'test, test, test' call from WHO specifically applies to just ''suspected cases'' and those who recently had contact with confirmed cases. WHO isn't calling for speculative testing.   I assume Prof Tobyjug is referring to a PCR test but as testing the entire nation for anything is a fantasy it doesn't matter much.

    • I don’t see some users posts, but since they’ve been quoted .........   I agree (in parts) with 2 contributors postings.   WHO says “test, test, test”, so more tests ARE key. That is part agreeing with one contributor.   I also agree with cjcregg. One has to understand the limitations of a test : (sensitivity, specificity and its positive and negative predictive values - which involves sensitivity / specificity AND prevalence!).   One also has to understand which test, to apply those limitations. a) RNA NAAT? (Commonly called PCR, though PCR is a tradename, so ‘PCR’ is to ‘NAAT’ like ‘Hoover’ is to ‘vacuum cleaner’) b) Antigen testing? c) Antibody testing? (If so, IgM? IgG? Both??)   Knowing which test(s), their limitations, and thus what the result actually MEANS is more important than a blanket statement of “test everyone!”, (and repeatedly ??! ) .... especially as it allows prioritisation of who gets what test to maximise benefit, until “testing for all” is more than a pipe-dream .....   Would you repeat a positive IgG test? If so, in what circumstances??
    • Just out of interest, how long did it take you to formulate this conclusion? I'm not looking for a particularly accurate answer, just round it up to the nearest nano second.    How is this going to work then?   Where are the medical personnel and laboratory staff required to undertake this massive project going to come from? Now this is just a stab in the dark but I'd imagine they'd be quite busy at the moment.   Even South Korea, who are recognised as having one of the most aggressive testing policies have only managed to test 1% of their population. You clearly have no conception as to the scale of what you're proposing.   Even if it was possible to plan, organise and execute it would take years to achieve, by which time all the data would have been redundant and completely meaningless. I was tested last week and it took 2 days for the result, which by the time I received it was already out of date as I was then and now just as likely to be infected as I was when I took the test.   Think about it.

RAC Warranty Offer not as advertised by Car Dealer John Harrison in Nottingham

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am in the process of buying a new car.

 

On their website it said their cars come with BuySure. Complimentary Breakdown cover for 12 months and with 6 months warranty. This was on their own website and the auto trader ad for the car. Please see attached. When I went in to buy, I was told the warranty would be £300 to extend to 12 months. I have complained and the most they would give me is the breakdown cover, not the warranty. I plan to go down today to have it out with them.

 

I'm kinda tied in as I have paid for my number plate to be switched. I have read today on the RAC site that cars sold by their partner dealers (such as the one I am dealing with) should come with the breakdown cover and a minimum of 3 months warranty (also attached). So they are still screwing me by telling me it only comes with 28 days warranty.

 

Am I misreading or understanding this or are they using this tactic to up-sell warranty. I plan to go in and let them know that am considering reporting them to auto trader, RAC and trading standards but before I do I want to make sure I don't have this wrong. 

 

Would you take it this way also?

Not yet. 

 

To be honest I'm not that bothered about having it as I've read the RAC warranties are pretty dud. I know I can use the consumer act to deal with any faults as it's a dealership. It's more the fact they seem to be using this to up-sell dishonestly.

I would tend to agree...there are lots of better alternatives...but at the least this need bringing to the attention of RAC and any other regulatory bodies.

I will be doing, is there anyone else you think might want to know apart from them and trading standards? What other bodies would have jurisdiction?

Is this a main dealer or second hand ?

Probably wise to wait until your deal has gone through and you have the car before before making any waves.

It's not a main dealer, but a second hand dealer. John Harrison in Nottingham. Thought they had a good reputation.
