Re: Warranty issues
I had a Honda accord, company car on lease scheme.
About a year old and a wiper blade split.
About a hundred miles from home in the wet so found a local Halfords.
Had to speak to my boss on business matters but mentioned the blade in passing.
Phone the lease company he says.
What for says I, it'll take me two minutes to put a blade on.
Phone em says he, warrantee!
So I does and they were adamant I couldn't replace the blade myself in case I invalidated warrantee.
It's a wiper blade, not going to affect if the gear box falls out.
But no, had to be at a suitable garage and Halfords, even if I paid for them to fit the blade didn't count.
Bought and fitted the blade anyway, wasn't going to traipse across south wales lookng for a honda dealer, then fitted the old one back on before taking it in to our local Honda dealers for the warrantee replacement.... ridiculous.
It did make me wonder if they'd have treated a scratched screen as warrantee if I'd kept driving with a missing blade ??
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
