Always look on the bright side of life - where did that come from? You should be getting an early Christmas present

I was quoted a 12 week delivery and it arrived ... in 12 weeks :)






Maybe that's because 14 months ago they were new to the UK, wern't that popular and nobody wanted them. Now they are and they do want them.


How come you waited 12 weeks anyway - Tempest had his in days!!!!

Dee - what's up with the PT?



RAC Motability looked at it sat and sun and said their is not much he could do with it as it needs to go onto the computer systems.



It started back las nov when they done a system upgrade on it and since then the vehicle will judder and shake like mad then cut out. At first it was intermittent and i know how hard it is for a dealer to find intermittent faults as working in the industry for Merc Truck & Van service dept. Now it judders,shakes and misfires and puts the orange engine management light on. Once you turn it off and back on again its ok after that and wasn't gonna bother trying to get it booked in at Kings of Bristol (inside Mercedes-Benz Of Bristol)as we thought on sunday only another 10 days to go and didn't wanna waste motability money on a car that we wold not have for much longer......How wrong was i




Spoke to Motability Mon after the dealer phone call (that i ended up shouting at him as her never explain why the car would be late) to see if it was ok to book the PT in and she said it was ok. The earliest i could get it booked in was next wed with that useless dealer (Had alot of faulting out this this dealer as their customer services are, hum shall i say poo
)...oh great



I'll stop moaning now
......So a out of the blue arrival of the Soul would be greatful but not gonna be that lucky.

What did Motabolity say? They don't like garages messing the customer about. They will also hire a car for your mum if your car's off the road.

Not much, if the waiting time was too long to go all the way to Bath but don't fancy driving that far with a car i cannot trust.
