  1. Just magnificent.
  2. Absolutely
  3. Can we just take a moment to applaud this man. Those terrible cowardly attacks summed up nicely.
  4. I assume there is some sort of watchdog that oversees car dealers and warranty companies etc. or at the other end of the scale, you try to prove that its their fault and sue them for cost of repair. Would be difficult unless you have documentary evidence of these fob offs. They will just say they never said that when confronted.
  5. On dashcam network now
  6. Someone beat me to it: http://rate-driver.co.uk/LS58GYC
  7. This woman crossed the road at the top of a slip road onto the A38 and never once looked up! The stills show her lack of awareness. She made it to the pavement by the time I was level with her but I think this is one occasion I probably should have sounded my horn! She was also very leisurely about crossing the busy road I might add!
  8. Absolute bell end in the Fiesta!!
  9. The emphasis here is on the word should. It's a guide as to how long it should last but not that it necessarily will as there are so many variables. Have you had it since new? High mileage for 2013. My 08 Golf TDI only has 62k miles on the clock. I believe a cambelt is wear and tear so you might struggle to bring an argument of satisfactory quality using your statutory rights. Have you tried an independent garage? See how much they charge and get them to inspect it to see what their opinion is.
  10. Close call on the roundabout! Falling snow, high winds, frost and very slippery driving conditions. This idiot overtook in a 30 before tailgating me down the hill at speeds of 40-50mph. Absolute idiot. - Excuse the crap audio from the rear camera!
  11. Twas a Corsa indeed. The car in front was a Toyota ;) (I think)
  12. Got this footage on my way to work this morning. I got out and gave both parties my details and informed them that it was caught on my dashcam video should their insurers require anything.
  13. If you are happy enough with the contribution then I would say go ahead and just hope for some extra from Ford. I can't see Ford refusing just because repairs have started. Their dealer wants to get things moving anyway.
