  1. But I have now. Around 5 minutes to refuel with real life range of 405 miles. My word, how wrong I got that!!
  2. No, you’re right. I was referring to petrol/diesel cars, not hydrogen.
  3. Largely because you keep banging on about, it's obviously an important part of your driving experience, so why wouldn't you? However I can honestly say that I have never, not once, done 0-60 on the open road in normal driving conditions, and certainly not in any manner that would mean being able to do it under 3 seconds is worth spunking 6 figures on! Generally speaking, those roads you can legally reach 60 means that you're rarely stopped at a standstill without a queue of traffic in front of you.... I mean, we'renot talking about well handling cars that you could use on a daily basis here, we're talking about launching which, outside of the drag strip, means precisely f**k all to your average motorist. Given that there are only 2 150KW chargers in the whole of the UK currently, you might as well claim that the millitony KW chargers are now a thing and they'll charge 400 miles of range in 2 seconds for all the use it'll be. However, regardless, I'm pretty sure 10 minutes to go 160 miles is still more than <5 minutes to go 400+ miles, so where exactly have EV's made up that advantage?
  4. And just how many times have you gone from 0-60 since buying it?
  5. Well I approve. I do like that! I also approve of the mat idea.

    Definitely a rendering; by this guy.
  7. Should you ever decide to sell up, let me know first please!
  8. Yeah, but you’re still missing the point. However this should not come as a surprise. You may be willing to accept the cost of new tyres, no one else is in my experience. And if you would honestly go the warranty company for tyres then you really are delusional.
  9. There are literally countless faults that might not get picked up on before purchasing a vehicle, the more vigilant you are pre-sale the less likely that is to happen, but even then you can't possibly inspect every single inch of a car for potential faults. Unless, of course, you are suggesting that in your little world, everyone buying a second hand car does a nut and bolt rebuild. I can't see that somehow. Although maybe I just need to zoom in because it's still on the horizon. You want a specific example? Okay, seeing as you seem to be struggling with the basic premise; Davey goes down to Junction 17, sees a car with some pretty tyre side walls and can't throw his money at the salesman quickly enough. Although Davey does take the time to check that the car comes with a valid MOT first. The deal is done, Davey gets in his "new" car and drives off. The next day, Davey discovers that the inside edge of the tyres are bald. Are you going to the warranty company or retailer in this scenario?!?! Not everyone gets a thorough check of car before they buy (see certain Cayman buyers on here, for example), some don't even check a car at all before buying (see Tesla owners, for example), some believe they know enough about cars not to spend out for the inspection, others just don't care because they are protected by the CRA 2015 anyway. Others do, they find faults and it is still the responsibility of the retailer to resolve those faults or lose a sale. People like J17 are reliant on there being more of those who don't than do. And that's exactly how life actually is, which is exactly how they're still in business. Also you don't mean devolved and I doubt this conversation would have been any easier in person. However, as I said previously, I know you don't mean pre-existing faults, which is entirely why you are missing the point. If a fault develops after the point of sale, then it is absolutely not the responsibility of the retailer; but that is exactly what no one other than you was ever talking about. The point, which is so harmlessly flying by overhead, is that when J17 are still responsible, they refuse to accept that responsibility and go out of their way to deny it, thus are terrible for customer service and should be avoided.
  10. Not if you break down on the way home from bying the car and it's a pre-existing condition from when the car was sold. That is still the seller's responsibility to resolve. Note resolve, not fix; different things! It's a condition of retail as a whole, whether it be cars or any other product. It's called the Consumer Rights Act 2015; the product must be fit for purpose. If it's several days/weeks/months later you might have difficulty demonstrating that it was a pre-existing issue at the point of sale at which point it becomes more difficult to return the product. It's not an indefinite thing and, yes, evenutally you might go directly to the warranty company (depending on the circumstances). It's not about going "above and beyond", you're talking about something completely different, you're talking about fixing the root cause not simply resolving the ultimate issue. It's about the simple fact that the retailer is responsible for selling a product that is fit for purpose, or resolving the issue if it isn't. There is no obgligation for anyone to fix anything, the retailer could simply decide to refund you and walk away from the deal entirely; that has got absolutely nothing to do with the warranty company.
  11. Providing they are still liable for the problem (eg it’s not 6 years later and you’ve changed the alternator a dozen times already), it’s simple; resolve the problem. Yet again, HOW they do that is on them, it’s their responsibility to resolve the problem at their expense. I don’t care if the salesman sends his wife and kids down with a handful of spanner’s to personally replace the alternator or if the car is transported to their preferred mechanic, the point is THEY have to arrange for that to happen and to burden that cost. I don’t understand why this is so difficult for you to grasp, it’s really very simple.
  12. Not if you're still pissing away £30k+ in either 5 or 2.5 years, especially compared to losing £20k in 5 years for a car that was only £30k to begin with. In fact, that's actually pretty bad.
  13. If you buy anything that's broken, what's your first port of call? The retailer. As said, how they resolve it is up to them, but it doesn't absolve them of any responsibility to ensure that it is resolved. Car retailers are no different to any other retailer.
  14. What have you done with the front number plate?
  15. Did you try @ZMANALEX ?
