Re: 9 month old Clio, write off?

you say it is a Motability clio if you mean it is a Motability lease car the repairers sould have given you a loan car till yours has been checked
if it is a long repair you will have the loan car till yours is ready
if it is a writeoff you will have to give back the loan car and order a new car to replace it

Re: 9 month old Clio, write off?

As said above,as it's a Motability car it's completely down to them to sort the situation out.

It does look like a write-off to me,I've seen new cars written off for much less.It is just as easy to give you a new car as it would be to repair this one,and to be honest as the front suspension is destroyed it will probably never ever drive the same again if it was repaired.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
