my mum in her w reg puma 1.7,year before last i took it for the mot and looked at the mileage and she had done under 1k for the year
last year it need a new cam belt and major service,and 2 weeks ago needed a new clutch.iirc its got 90k? on the clock and she bought it 2nd hand about 10 years ago.working it out it costs her a fortune to keep it on the road.
but at 82 years young anyone WANT to tell her to hang up her keys,COZ i aint !Removed! brave enough.
i would think it might be worth having a look at the alarm module,iirc its under the passenger front wheel arch,
the mk1 problem steff is on about wouldve been the rear washer pipe that runs under the front passenger carpet which just happens to have a join in it directly above the ecu/alarm/central locking module which is under the passenger front seat.the mk2 galaxy it was moved up under the dash board.
i threatened a vauxhall dealer ship with the small claims court over a 2nd hand ford galaxy i had bought,silly buggers should have listened to me from the outset but the 2nd hand car manger thought he knew everything and was playing hardball,the salesman bless him had his hands tied and saw it was going to get messy.
and it almost did when i had a stand up argument in the main dealer ship with the dealer principle in front of LOTS OF CUSTOMERS.
thing is if they had listened to me it wouldve cost them no more then a couple of hundred quid,BUT OH NO.
cost em nearly 3k to sort out all the mess.
if you know your rights and have info from the likes of forums like these,and have a back bone then why wouldnt you get what you are entitled too?
