    Default Noddy car for a week!!!

    The Vec 1.8 (57 plate 44k) has gone in for a new clutch under Network Q warranty, so I have been given something that looks like a Noddy car for a week! I always thought that they gave you a car of equal size to your car. I assume I am wrong???

    I will have to leave really early now to get to work in time!! Doh.

    Hope all you guys are doing well and looking forward to Christmas!!

    Kev.

    P.S. To those who pass through Milton Keynes area (M1), look out for a dark grey 06 Vec (unmarked police car).

    2 days they reckon. I cant get back there before they close each day though. I work late, and 20 odd miles away, so its going back next Saturday afternoon

    I am going to ask if one of their guys can take my car home, and I will swap it with him in the evening. I doubt I will get away with it though
    They are gonna rip me apart tomorrow at work when I pull up in this thing! Ha Ha.

    Your thinking about an insurance claim, you normally only get what they have when you get a courtesy car from a garage.

    I remember getting a Daihatsu Cuore, a complete noddy car, as a courtesy car after someone bumped my cavalier sri a few years back. 3 cylinder 900cc but OMG they had got the gearing right for it, it was a flying machine, and im not joking!!!! Took a mate for a run in it, he had a Corolla twin cam, and he could not believe just how quick this thing was either. Often these noddy cars carry a few surprises.

    The claim from the dealership is in excess of £500, so the Area Engineer needs to examine the car, hence why it takes longer
    Some dealerships won't order the parts until the claim is approved, others will proceed assuming it will be approved, and then commence the repair as soon as it has been approved
