    Default Dodgy salesman!!!

    I went to a well known car supermarket in the Midlands today. Me and Mrs MLC had a look at a few replacement cars for her. One car we looked at was on a 55 plate, 19000m and theoretically had a over a year of warranty left. I asked the salesman to confirm that it had been serviced according to manufacturers schedule.

    It turned out it had never been serviced. " Warranty's no good then" says I. Salesman then tries to convince me that under 'block exemption' a warranty is valid as long as the car is serviced anytime within the year. It was coming up to two years old and he said "get it serviced now and again in a a couple of months and that will validate the warranty" So according to him, you can get it serviced 10 months late, then again bang on two years and all is well.

    Now, he is either very ignorant or just a blatant liar. I wonder how many people are suckered into buying a car. I'm sure they are given short shrift if they return with a problem.

    Vx serviced mine on the Eco flex at about 17k, took about 18 months to get to that and they have done about £7500 worth of warranty work to he car including a new engine at 29k. They were happy to let he car run to the ecoflex schedule instead of the 12 months.

    I think he probably is suffering from either lack of knowledge or struggling to get his quota for the mth and keep his job tbh Paul.
