I've owned my new car for just over two weeks.
In that time, its been back to Perrys Ford Alfreton as somehow they failed to spot that the electric window switch on the drivers side wasnt working at all.
Now ive also had to have 2 new tyres fitted to the car as mentioned in another post as the budgets were awful, they were not able to help me with that as they said the tyres were road legal.
When the new tyres were fitted, my local garage, formula one autocentres who knew ive only just purchased the car told me that the rear disks and pads were in need of changing. Disks were 9.6mm and they said they should be a minimum 11mm and the pads were very low and would need changing very soon.
I did question this as ive only had the car for exactly 2 weeks and its had a full mot and service by Perrys Ford prior to purchasing. I find this quite annoying if they've passed the car off as ok when from my experience of Ford dealers they always look for extra work and any health checks they do, they normally find allsorts to change at a hefty price. So how did they miss the rear disks and pads.
Anyway i rang up and spoke to the service guys who didnt seem very happy that i have questioned an issue that they said was comprehensively checked prior to being given to me.
They have only agreed to look at the car on tuesday and not committed to doing any work until a ford tech guy has looked over it properly.
hopefully they will change the parts that should have been done already.
My understanding is that if they pass it on as ok, most people dont get these things checked out until a year later, on a service and mot, then the owner then has to fork out the extra cash. Think its unfair
