I won't bore everyone too much with the details but:
I bought a 2003 Scenic dci FIDJI with 42k mls at the weekend from an
trader in Leeds. When I got to Leeds (4hr journey) the history he talked about didn't exist and the service book was empty. After that journey and a good look at the car (which was straight and HPI clear) and paid for it and he gave me a written guarantee that he would be able to trace the dealer history.
Since then I've attempted it myself and pulled blanks at every corner...it seems this car hasn't been to any dealers up there and even has a recall outstanding on the windscreen.
I'm in panic mode now and can't get help from my local Renault dealers as they say they cannot find the history on the Renault database if it wasn't done by them? Is this true????
The V5 says "Bank of Scotland" was the previous fleet owner so I would very much expect it to have been near a Renault dealers somewhere....it's just finding out where?
Needless to say Bank of Scotland are proving very elusive/no help.
