    • 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.

natweststaffmember (natty for short) is a very welcome & highly considered member of this forum. Any persons working for banks etc have to make themselves known to moderators 1st as far as I'm aware.

 

he/she did actually leave a while ago but came back much to the delight of many users. I personally don't have any personal experiences of dealing with natty (yet) or indeed don't know the reasons for wanting to post & help on here but as I say I know this certainly is a VERY highly regarded member.

 

I'm sure natty, a moderator or someone else will be along to explain better than I can & maybe answer your Q :)

Nascor- I am a protected species in the CAG. I understand your views on bank staff and just to make you aware, all bank staff have to make themselves known to Admin on here prior to posting.

No worries, I assume you are here to claim back bank charges and continue a discussion already previously discussed on another site.

What was it? Where was the general consensus going?

There are many bank employees on this forum. many of them let admin know about it and I am sure that there are many more who don't.

 

By and large everyone is welcome regardless of their point of view and I'm sory to say that over-generalised opiinions such as the one expressed in the quote above are unhelpful, are not encouraged on this forum and do ot represent the views of The Consumer Action Group.

 

I would add that any bank employee who visits these pages is taking a serious risk with their employment or promotion prospects.

The banks can be quite vindictive about this kind of thing if they find out.
