    • Thank you. If you look at the policy objectives outlined on page 3, I think that there is nothing there which indicates that a consumer is obliged to accept the Consumer Rights Act as an alternative to normal contractual remedies. The consumer rights act, in my view, operates to protect the consumer – and only the trader in a limited way in that it sets a time. For rejection of goods and receiving a complete refund. My understanding of the Act is that it works hand-in-hand with ordinary contract law and does not replace it. It simply clarifies certain remedies – but you can still avail yourself of all the normal remedies which exist in the common law of contract. If you bring a claim then frankly I don't see any point in particular referring to the 2015 Act. You have been supplied with a defective item – it amounts to a breach of warranty – especially because it is a non-fungible item and therefore it you are entitled to insist on damages to put you into the position that you would have been if the contract had been carried out correctly and without this breach. I don't see any difficulty in bringing this claim in a court, if necessary, as long as you have the quotations and the assessment of the dog that it does indeed have this dental problem. I've already said that when this dental problem became discernible is irrelevant in terms of an action against the breeder. It is relevant in terms of an action against Vets4Pets 
    • P.40/41 - C. Tier 2 Remedies – reduction in price or reject/refund C. Tier 2 Remedies – reduction in price or reject/refund   Again, I'm not an expert and just doing my best with the research I've done. Happy to be corrected / questioned.   Thanks
    • Could you please refer me to the correct page
    • @BankFodder Re the 'letter of claim' you're absolutely right, I'm sorry, that was a lazy question from me. I'm feeling the fatigue from the stress of this. I'll look it up.   In terms the comments I made about a replacement - I've read this document  (see link below) and it seemed to suggest that I'd need to prove that finding a suitable alternative would provide us with 'significant inconvenience', in order to legitimately refuse the refund. Happy to be corrected.   I know it's horrible to talk about replacements when thinking about living things, and as I said above we are keeping our puppy and committed to paying for the necessary treatment.   I was, however, trying to prove that a return and refund isn't an acceptable course of action for us. Hope this makes sense.   - https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/274834/bis-13-1360-consumer-rights-bill-supply-of-goods-impact-final.pdf  
    • Hi all, Can I quickly check something with yourselves. I've finally been able to pick up all the correspondence she's received and I have a question. There is no "Notification Of Default Fees Charged" letters. am I right in saying that where a Default Charge/Fee/Penalty has been applied they should also provide a notification of the this and not just have it on the statement?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I took my Ford Fiesta into Ford for a 70,000 mile service on the 22/03/2006 which also involved a repair to the thermostat which had developed a leak just days before. The car had been in my possession at the time for around 9 months and had done 10,000 miles since I had bought it so needed an oil change and the service.

 

I thought I would take it into Ford for the good of the car and the service history. I was charged in total £414.14

 

It is now 06/06/2006, and the car has developed a problem, it is misfiring which means it has fuel deprevation at high revs which causes the car to judder when the acelerator is compressed.

 

I have taken it into a local garage this morning and they have informed me that the spark plugs are not in good shape, one in particular is completely rusted and has been for some time. Coils may also need to be replaced but a full investigation will take place tomorrow as well as a repair. The job at most will cost in the region of £200.

 

Now I am no car expert, but I would've thought that Ford during a 70,000 mile service of the vehicle might have come across the fact that the spark plugs were looking poorly. I am going to proceed with the repair at the local garage and bring the mechanics report to Ford and ask for my money back for poor workmanship during my 70,000 mile service.

 

What rights do I have as a consumer and what can I legally claim for in this instance? Can I claim back the costs involved at Ford and the current repair costs? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

First you should check with the spec of the 70,000 mls service for that model.

 

ie. If the plugs should be changed, cleaned or even checked. Also check the bill which should state the parts you have paid for.

Wish i had caught this thread earlier, there is a government MOT testing station and the link is on the front page of the website, you could of taken it there, sometimes a garage will not go against another garage if you need proof.

 

This way it would be a full witness situation, and pictures just click away you can never have enough evidence to make a file on later.

 

As long as there is evidence that the long term damage is there and it comes under a service, a service with out sparks is like a dog with out a tail. If you buy a service pack your self they always come with it no matter what year, But as DW advised check that the main dealers being what they are have not put a clause in to say its a service of brakes and saftey more than car and engine.

 

hope you are sfae on the road again today

Thanks for that breadline, well after reading a few other posts in this section I routed through the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 and got some tips on what to ask the current service garage and got onto them this morning before the repair took place. They have given me the old parts back so I can see the damage and I have written a letter to Ford which I will send tomorrow.

cool well done, go kick arse.:)

some one put a good hint on here, when they tell you you need a part removed ask to be shown teh part, tell tehm you need to talk to your other halve, then go home and mark it with nail polish.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Without knowing the age, the major service on most modern Fords is 30k miles, at which point you would change the plugs. The standard fit plugs are Titanium, so they don't need to be replaced every 12-months/10,000 miles like what the old ones used to be.

 

I guess that would be the dealers "get-out-of-jail-free" card, they could have assumed the plugs were changed at the 60,000 mile interim and wouldn't need changing. Bit crap though, if they were really rusty, a visual check would have shown the problem. The problem is, you often get nippers and/or apprentices doing minor oil change services and sadly it comes down to their supervision being good enough.

 

(Funny how when it's a below minimum wage apprentice doing the work, the hourly rate is the same as a fully qualified tech....)

 

Anyway, as somebody said above - your invoice should state the parts replaced. If it doesn't say spark plugs, then I'm not sure where you would go from there.

Well thanks for the advice, I particularly like the one about marking parts with nail polish! However it is too late for that now. I have written a letter to them and posted it recorded delivery today asking for the money back due to poor workmanship. I doctored a request for repayment of charges letter from the bank library replacing parts like

 

I would draw your attention to the terms of the contract, which you agreed to at the time that I opened my account. It is an implied term of that contract that you would conduct yourselves lawfully and in a manner, which complies with UK law.

 

with...

 

I would draw your attention to the terms of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982. It is an implied term of the contract that you would conduct yourselves ‘With reasonable care and skill (the standard of skill of an average garage)’ and any goods fitted during the work are covered by the Sale of Goods Act as well, which says they must be ‘of satisfactory quality’.

 

It will be interesting to see what there comeback will be.

According to the Ford ETIS page on a 62500/5year service the plugs aren't due to be changed.

 

To find out the exact service items for your variant/year look here

And at 75,000 miles it says to replace. The invoice claims to be a 70,000 mile service, and I believe the vehicle was slightly over this so much closer to 75,000 than 62,500. The point is the spark plugs were visibly in a poor condition and nothing was done about it.

 

Thanks for this area on the Ford website, very useful.

I received a reply from Ford today, I haven't seen the letter myself but my other half gave me the gist. Basically they are saying that they check plugs at 60,000 and 90,000 but not at 70,000 and take no responsibility for the fact that the spark plugs and coils were damaged.

 

This goes against what they state on their website posted by installspark previously so I will be following up with a further letter detailing these. The letter will be a "Letter Before Action" and give them a further 14 days to reflect.

 

As I have said previously I have the old parts so I will include photos of these too.

 

I will post the letter from Ford on here later...
