    • Yes, sorry it’s £5000 not £7000 that I’ve spent on repairs. I know it sounds ridiculous, but originally I was quoted £1800 for the gearbox. As I’d bought the car and obviously wasn’t going to get anything back from the promised warranty from Yew Tree cars, it was a decision that seemed the most realistic under the circumstances. But then the scenario gets worse and it gets to a stage that you’ve invested such and such amount, constantly being assured that once this job is done the car will be in A1 condition…… To summarise: Car bought 29th December 2020  Went to Autoessentials aka 169UK beginning of January 2021. Amount paid to above £5000
    • Just ignore it.  Despite their bluster G24 haven't dared take any of the "six of you" on CAG to court.
    • Jack Wilkinson  His address is one of those virtual offices, ie the actual business doesn’t operate from there and nobody seems to know where his garage is. However it’s 3 The Drive, Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex, CM13 3FR I have paid him £5000 to date He’s place is about 2.5 hours away from me, but I currently live most of the year in France. I’ll attach the only piece of written evidence that I have from him. This was supposed to have been a report on the condition of the vehicle for my court case against Yew Tree Cars, but is pretty useless to be honest. He telephoned me last week to say that he was ill with Covid, but would be back at work the following Monday and the car would be returned tomorrow (4th December 2021). I sent him a text with information that I required from him before I would accept delivery of the vehicle (£175 each way). Text is added as an image below. This morning I had a phone call from his wife, with no caller id, who said that he was very ill in hospital with Covid, but he should be out on Monday. she said that they were going to take  the car to be MOT’d (it did have a 12 month MOT on it when it was collected last January) but apparently one of the 2 turbos has gone. She said Jack was going to source a replacement (obviously from a breakers yard) and fit it for free. Then it was discovered that the entire engine has to come out to fit it, which is going to cost in the region of £2000! Obviously I have no intention of paying anymore money to this person. The call ended with her telling me that Jack would telephone me next week to discuss it. Under normal circumstances one would imagine that him getting Covid is credible, but with his track record, I just see it as another delaying tactic. The forum that I found this information on is https://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/threads/ecu-solutions-brentwood-essex-any-reviews.1776159/page-4   I’m in the situation of not knowing what work he has actually done. I have no idea whether he is telling me the truth or anything. A thought that crossed my mind, after reading people’s posts on the VW site, is that he uses his customers vehicles to take parts from for other cars and then waits until a similar car comes in to replace them. I just can’t figure out the scam here, but there definitely is one! TEXT SENT ON 26/12/2021 Dear Jack, Further to our telephone conversation yesterday, I request the following from you please: 1. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £3000 paid on the 14/01/2021. 2. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £2000 paid on 05/02/2021. 3. Your VAT number and address of your business premises. The car wash centre where customers are requested to deliver/collect their vehicles from is not acceptable. Neither is the ‘dummy’ office that you use at Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex. This is not your business premises. Under UK law, it is a legal requirement for you to provide this. You advised me yesterday that my vehicle will be returned to me by the end of next week, being 03/12/21. Before accepting receipt of the vehicle, the following is required: The documents requested in points 1-3, to be sent by email to **************@gmail.com  A photograph of the current mileage. A video of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Evidence that the vehicle is running as it should be. 12 months MOT certificate. Warranty documentation for the replacement gearbox dated from 03/12/2021, again to be sent by email, before receipt of the vehicle will be accepted. Yours sincerely,   Trying to upload the photo of the document  that he sent to me by text (jpeg) but it won’t let me.  
    • Overall, the cost of the energy market failures could cost households more than £3bn, according to research from wealth management group InvestecView the full article
    • Is this the same car you bought for £4500 in December 2020 and then spent a further £7k on including a new gearbox?   And now you've spent another £5k on it (including a second replacement gearbox?) with somebody who has had the car for the last 11 months and you've had no use of it in all that time?   (I wondered if perhaps UK169 had carried out the original work and repairs after you had first bought the car last year, but you said on your other thread that you'd spent £7k on repairs, not £5k.  It's a bit confusing... )   EDIT:  Reading again, UK169 did carry out the original repairs etc after you bought it from Yew Tree although you did say on the other thread £7k not £5k.  So in the 11 months since you bought the car, it's only been in your physical possession for a couple of weeks and the rest of the time it's been with UK169?  Did you get any money back from Yew Tree?

There is a spready with a list somewhere but I'm going to watch the football so I'll have a little look for it later tonight Also I've calculated using the survey on the front page averages, that Abbey have refunded about 300 customers from this site, which I thought was quite a telling stat to use.:)

Hi,

Not sure if I should write to Abbey and ask for there cooperation to the terms of the court order dated.................... and tell them that I am now preparing my Court Bundle and will also be asking for £80.00 towards ink and paper and 40 hrs @ £9.25 for the time it has taken me to prepare to go to court.?????????????????

Ordinarily there are no costs awarded to either party in the Small Claims Court. But if one party behaves unreasonably, the other can ask the Judge to award costs in accordance with CPR27.14; namely £9.25per hour Bundle prep and £6.75 per letter. However, don't write to the Judge (or Abbey) Just ask Abbey for it as part of the settlement prior to Court (ie include it in the inevitable telephone conversation with James/Inga just prior to Court). They didn't even raise an eyebrow at my 34hrs. I had ready a schedule of how that was made up but they didn't ask. Clearly, if they refuse to pay prep costs, just threaten Rule 27.14. http://www.dca.gov.uk/civil/procrule...enus/rules.htm

Regards, Mad Nick

Hi everybody,

 

Bundle all done and ready to send to abbey :D god it took some time, and had couple of sleepless nights, anyway its done now so lets just see what happens

 

Am just putting details together and will pin so that when I finally get a phone call from somebody I will be ready to talk settlement.

 

I am going to ask for 35 hrs @ £9.25 for putting bundle etc together and £50.00 to cover cost of ink, paper postage etc.

 

so with the court costs this will put my amount up to £1818.72 - £230.00 goodwill gesture they have already paid.

 

total due £1588.72.

 

Would I need to advise court that the amount has gone up or just leave it as I understand that on small claims you cannot claim for costs.

Foxy,

 

On my N160 ( Notice of Allocation) it says in a box at the bottom under "Notes"..........As you have consented to your claim being heard in the small claims track, any costs allowed to the successful party will be limited to the maximum sum which can be awarded in the fast track".

 

 

Is yours the same?

Hi Foxy,

 

Haven't been on here for a couple of days, glad it's going ok for you! Did you send a letter with your bundle requesting your costs or are you going to wait until they contact you?

 

I've had so much on the last few days but I really must get back on track with my witness statement & bundle & get it off to them!

Well done Foxy lady ....really good news . Am I right in thinking that you did NOT submit your court bundle ?

 

Checked with the Court yesterday and my AQ is still with the Judge !!!!

Absolutely nothing heard from the Abbey , I am a little tempted to call them but on the other hand I would prefer that they contact me , as I dont want to look as if I am begging .

 

Charleyfarley have you had something in the post ??
