Re: Broken Knob
Hey alfa 5,
I take it you are going to springburn for the new knob....
Don't take any crap from them if they say it is just normal wear and tear - they tried that with me a split handbrake cable when it was under warranty. Just remember the Supply of goods and service act 1982 - there is a term implied in the act (section 4 (2)) which covers "the goods will be of satisfactory quality, judged by what a reasonable person would regard as satisfactory". Section 4 (5) also says that the goods must be fit for the purpose they were intended for.........
So - I doubt they could argure that at 12.5k & 18 months old, a knob should fall off/deteriorate.
Got to say it's unfortunate that springburn is the only alfa dealership in the glasgow area now..... but would still advise to keep FSH up within warranty period with main dealer, again don't let them sell you a dummy.
Regards from a fellow frustrated west-coaster.
P.S use CM garage (indy) in East Kilbride - when you are out of warranty.
