                Have you paid by credit card?



                If you pay for the repair or service by credit card, and if the work costs more than ?100, you are protected by s.75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Section 75 makes the card provider as responsible as the dealer if something goes wrong. You are entitled to take action against the dealer, the card provider or both.

                    Technical details don't come into this, the dealer made a contract with Colin to program a key supplied by him. They failed to carry this out, and in the process rendered his car undrivable. He doesn't have to prove negligence, it is simple breach of contract, and as such he entitled to damages for that breach.



                    Exactly how I see it too

                      Divinell, it is not about suing, it is about seeking resolution and knowing your rights. You only threaten to sue if you don't agree a resolution.



                      Colin, if you have to write to the garage you should use the link below to a letter template



                      http://www.which.co....ile-at-a-garage



                      I am not a legal expert but it would seem to me Colin's case is strong and by using his legal rights approriately should get this matter resolved to his satisfaction and at no cost to himself - on the proviso he mitigates his costs.

                        For consumer contracts the terms and conditions should be fair for both parties. If it isn't, it can be deemed unfair.

                          I think we are not a million miles away ... I am saying that actual legal action should be a last resort.

                          Resolution through pressure from VX, writing a good letter, negotiation, should be the first attempt.



                          Unless it can be proved that there is a problem with Vauxhall's systems then it is down to the dealer and not Vauxhall to deal with Colin's claim. The dealer may approach vauxhal to mitigate their liability.

                              Good to hear it is on the way to being resolved. Good fortune with the last part, but with what has happened before, you might just have a fight on your hands. Next time use the other garage!!!
