Slow Puncture?

26 July 2015 - 11:32 AM

Anyone had a slow puncture recently and if so what is the cost of repair? I checked the tyre pressures yesterday and all but the front drivers side were down by 2 PSI.


The front drivers side was down by 15 PSI! I must say it looked a bit low hence I checked and pumped them all up. I will keep an eye on it for sure.


The last time I had a slow puncture was 11 years ago on a Focus and I can't remember how much the repair cost.

Copied from video description: The first white van man decided to fly into the side street causing the
Peugeot 406 to brake rather than just being patient. The second white van man had his window down and was chatting away on his mobile phone without a care in the world - Footage from Roadhawk DC-2


Watch Out For Dealers With Claims Like This

I spotted this by chance whilst browsing autotrader today. If you ever see this, the dealer will most likely try to wriggle out of any claims under SOGA by claiming you purchased as a trader. Utter rubbish which will not hold water of course, thanks to SOGA itself, the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and the case law I mentioned in the consumer tip topic.

Here is the wording in question:



all cars are trade sale to the public.


I emailed them (not letting on I know anything) and asked them what would happen if I purchased a car that went wrong. They haven't bothered to reply yet and assuming they don't, that speaks volumes in itself.

Bmw Driver Using Phone Whilst Driving
