A Mk 1 Laguna purchased @ 9 months old, it started showing a small patch of rust on the NS rear wing.

Feeling a good amount of self satisfaction of knowing the car was covered against anti perf & rust I took back, the claim was rejected on the basis that an alleged none compliant repair had been done on the same wing. That was news to me!!!!

That fact was, I couldn't prove the repair had been completed to Renaults paint procedures.

Claim Rejected.

I was a soft touch in those days & ended with an invisible DIY job

BTW I'm not such a soft touch nowadays & Renault got away with FA with me.
Tried that with me in 1997 with a Mk1 clio when it started rusting round rear wiper but as i was friends with original owner we managed to get it sorted out
Currently in batfink5's garage:
Laguna MKIII 2.0dci dynamique, Clio dynamique tom tom, Vauxhall zafira
