Re: Advice for new owner.

Hi there and welcome.

Its a tricky one to call, as you have seen the car (and obviously was won over enough with it & the garage to buy it) - we haven't.

I guess it all comes down to how you feel the dealer is treating you so early into the purchase experience.

Cars do go wrong (this forum is full of them), but it really depends if you can accept that you've been unlucky (or lucky, depending on how you see it), and if you think the car or the dealer has something to hide.

Trust your instinct on this, and sleep on it.

I would personally wait until Monday, and then go over that accelerator connection before driving off (if you decide to keep it).

Although, be prepared for him to be an unhappy bunny if you decide to reject it.

HTH & keep us posted.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
