This morning my engine management light came on orange (159 1.9jtdm) called alfa dealership they said, oh no problem it'll be ok book it in we'll take a look at it. A few hours later i went to start it and as soon as i pushed the starter button, all electrics died (no starter, no lights, no locks, no alarm)
Had to get AA (a.holes annonymous) out they sent someone else who brought the wrong van, AA said i'd get a car under the alfa assist thingy, 159 got dragged onto a slide and lift lorry, still no hire car.
called aa they then say not entitled to a car as im only a lloyds TSB Platinum member, I remind them about the Alfa Assist they claim i didnt put it through on 'that' policy (surely having two policies is better than one!) eventually some one from AA management reviews the recorded call and agrees that i have been 'wrongly' promised a car and they in this instance get one sorted for me.
I end up being taken from work to chesterfield dealer then to east midlands airport to pick up car (chevy matiz)
It took 8 hours from phoneing AA to actually getting home (11 miles) and missed a shift at work.
