GEAR BOX REPLACEMENT.

Post by dumfunk » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:57 pm

THIS IS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY CAR, THIS IS THE FINDING OF ANOTHER MEMBER ON THE FACEBOOK PART OF THE FORUM. IF YOU HAVE GEARBOX PROBLEMS OUT OF WARRANTY YOU SHOULD SEEK PROFFESIONAL ADVICE AND REFFER TO THESE LAWS TO SEE IF YOU CAN HAVE THE REPAIRS PAID FOR BY EITHER THE MANUFACTURER OR THE PLACE YOU PURCHASED YOUR CAR OR THE FINANCE COMPANY THAT FINANCED YOUR PURCHASE.

So today I found out that Warranty’s on products you buy are not worth the paper they are written on in today’s society, they were brought about by necessity as we had no consumer rights !!! Section 9 and 10 of the Consumer rights act protect us up to 6 years after original purchase and are far superior to any warranty you can be supplied 👍👌

NOTE:
IF PURCHASE MADE BEFORE 1st OCTOBER 2015:

Under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended by the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002, goods purchased after 31 March 2003 will be assumed to be faulty from purchase if they develop a fault in the first six months. This means that it is up to the retailer to prove that the goods conformed with the contract in disputed cases. This has been called the “reversed burden of proof”. After six months, however, it is for the consumer to prove that the lack of conformity existed at the time of the sale.

Thank you Which Consumer Advice Legal Team 👍😎

Your welcome

no, i need to edit this.... its a post from the facebook part of the forum.
a guy had his output shaft replaced after the warranty ran out, where MB paid a prcentage of the cost in goodwill. it has since gone again and MB say the gearbox now needs replacing, where they say they will pay another goodwill percentage of the cost, but he has done some digging and you now have 6 years warranty from where ever you bought it from....
