Result! Main Dealer immediately found one dead
... quoted £106 to fit one new ... one plus another £166 to replace all. Friendly enough until I stood my ground reiterating the fact that these were supposed to have been "better"
to replace the initial bad batch so why the early failure. Initially advised the car well out of guarantee period so no help forthcoming and to change all
because if one goes the others are likely to follow .. then suggested latest failure was "one of those things" as they are electronic and do fail, also advised that there is no adverse effect in changing just one. Logic seemed to have disappeared at this stage, the conversation was getting heated, and I asked them to contact
approved replacement of the failed
... I don't know how the conversation went but I was told "that I am very lucky and that that doesn't usually happen; if any more fail they will each have to be dealt with as and when", so do I expect further failures or not? I suspect I do.
, my sincere thanks to all those who have contributed to the "
saga" in the past ... but why does
one have to cause a fuss to get satisfaction over a known problem ... what has happened to good customer relations?
