Default Jazz's latest situation

Well hello all, I haven't opened a thread up in a while so I thought I'd do this!

As some of you know, I bought another 307 diesel the Saturday before the one just gone!

Anyway the deal was that I take the car, drive about, and bring it back on the Tuesday (12th) for them to give it a full service, MOT and sort anything I ask for to be sorted.

So I took it, drove a little, and phoned them up:

1, It stank of smoke. Turned out the person who traded it in wasn't a smoker, but the girl who loaned the car off him for a few days was a smoker, and smoked in this non-smoker car. I asked for a valet, he said that he would do that

2, It drifts to the left when you put the throttle on, but the steering wheel straightens by itself so you kind of snake left and back straight again (really weird) - he said he'd sort it.

Anyway there were some things like the coolant sensor and ABS sensors I managed to get him to do (there were a few bleepies on the MFD) and asked him to get a diagnostic ran on it and print me the results.

So I took it in, and I hear nothing from them. They have provided me with a 1.9 SE TDI Golf (05 reg) however and it is more expensive than my car so I'm not overly worried (In fact I'm starting to love it).

I rang them on Friday and they said that the diff needed replacing, it was knackered. OK then I'll let them do that...

I rang them yesterday to find out the craic - "Jazz mate it'll be another 3-4 days as the diffs aren't just off the shelf".

Really? Does it really take 3-4 days to get a diff in and fit it???

I do hope amongst all this they remember to do the valet etc.

They did say to me that the car "Passed the MOT with flying colours" - so I said "was there an advisory?" they reply "Yes" and so I say "So how's that with flying colours??? :S"

Anyway I'm not over bothered, like I say, I've got a golf which I'm fond of.

But what are you guys' verdict on it. I don't think I'm being conned, it's a decent garage (They have an R8 for sale :P) and I just think they're a bit odd. Maybe they are setting a 307 up for a crash so they can take the diff off for scrap money !!

Well - everyone knows the problems that I had wiv my mota. But...the garage repaired them all under warranty. So far everything is working 'OK' and coming upto 20k me miles.

As a geezer said to moi in werk - there are so many new parts on it now, it'll last forever. He may be right.

Thing is, buying a car from a reliable and trustworthy garage - now that's worth something in my book. Stick with it.

At least your getting to play around in a pleasant alternative car in the mean time!

I had a 08 Golf 2.0TDI GT Sport (170) for a while, company thing, I have to say I was sad when I handed it back! Really was a joy to drive, and the pulling power of that 2.0 170bhp was epic fun!

Let them keep the 307!

Phil

i do have to say golfs are very nice cars. when i was at hensons getting my next car after my peugeot, i got offered by the finance company the 09 VW Golf, the only reason i didnt take it was the fact it was a 2.0L GTI! the insurance would have been unreal! looked like a right beast.

i have my eyes set on a Nissan GTR in the future (late 20's)...every man has to become a boy and buy atleast one ridiculus car in his lifetime

Yeah, you know, it's sometimes nice to put yourself inside a bit of German for a change!
