    Default Stealer wrecks my sump!!!

    My car was in today at the local stealers to get the alternator replaced, so when I called the wife at work to see when the car would be ready she says, "I think you better call Matt"....

    It turns out they didnt put a board under the jack when jacking the engine up when on the ramps, so when one of the guys walked passed the car he said to the guy sorting it, "wheres all that OIL coming from". Turns out they have cracked the sump.

    So when I phoned up they were a little nervous to say the least. What i did get from them was my next service free of charge even though my warranty is up in the first week of March, when I asked if that included front brakes and disks thay said ........"YES".

    Ohh, and yes they have ordered a new sump, should be sorted by the end of play Thursday, and they have given us another car to run about in which they are picking up the cost of and the wife has aksed for a full tank of fuel...wumen.lol

    Erm... where's their engine beam?????

    Jack underneath is for numpties.. even a tramsmission stand is dodgy.. always use an engine beam myself....

    at least they're bending over backwards to fix it and sort you out..they can't really deny it can they??....

    I know Mark, I think its because I get on really well with them down there and that it was hard trying to tell me because of this..lol.

    I have also asked if the mesh grill behind the sump was ok and they said yes.

    They can't really deny this one cos its such a big deal. Its the damage some dealers have done that they don't own up too is the worry.

    They scratched the paint work on my mota then denied it

    I suppose the could'nt have done much more for you....or should I say for them ?
