Re: Brera Disaster !
ARUK have behaved absolutely properly. I am disappointed in some of the more extreme chunterings demanding blood gore and money.
I have to say that the majority of manufacturers would have authorised a new engine for all sorts of reasons. Its the cheapest, it is most likely to guarantee a good outcome, (rebuilt engines often have problems), Its the most acceptable to customer. They might also ship the old engine back to see exactly what happened and why.
There is no reason on earth to authorise a new car, and I commend GTCOOP for keeping his cool and dealing with it in a proportionate manner. I don't think the dealer has behaved badly, and I think we have to give them the benefit of the doubt that it was a freak event after the oil change.
Lets hope the car is back in ace condition asap. These things happen, and like other have said, provided everybody behaves as they should, you just take it in your stride.
