I bought a 53 plate privilege last June and the garage extended the warranty until June this year. However the car is at the garage now with two problems. The screen washer is leaking and is covered by the warranty, but the condensation in the headlight isnt and thats £350 for a new one as they have tried sealing it about 6 weeks ago. Any thoughts?
That'll be because the headlamp unit is seen as a trim item (and isn't covered on that age of car) - sounds crazy I know, but you may be eligible for a goodwill contribution from Renault (I think the dealer should be able to apply), you may not get full recompense, but if you pay even just a little bit - you'll get a full parts warranty on the replaced item.
I used to work in Ford UK's Out-of-warranty department.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
