Well I took it back to the used dealer who is the biggest $£%& in the world!!!
I took it in on Tuesday 11/04/06 and I was told that it would be an hour of a job as he’d already had it diagnosed on the Thursday prior. (Received a P Reg Renault Megane as a courtesy car. What a heap!!!)
I then received a phone call on Wednesday stating that the problem required yet another day. So me being the soft touch that I am went a long with it.
On Friday evening a received a call from the used car dealer stating that he could not rectify the problem and that it would need to go to a FIAT/ALFA dealer as his equipment could not diagnose or rectify the problem. (Mmm. The lies are starting to roll in now.)
I then asked when would it be ready and to my surprise he just blatantly stated “DON’T KNOW!”
At this point I was fuming
as I had just bought a car and had only cover 50 miles in it (Mainly taking it to the dealer). I then requested the number of the Alfa dealer who turned out to be a small FIAT dealer. (OK fair enough at least the car is at a main dealer now and no cowboy is messing with it.) The FIAT dealer was unsure if it had been repaired? As the technician had finished for the day.
I then called the car dealer on Saturday asking if it was ready and the reply was NO!
(Oh, what a surprise!).
I then followed on the call and was told that the C.A.N. Network had gone down and that FIAT was unable to access my system until Wednesday, as they would need to connect via the internet to the Main Fiat Head Office to get into the system and reset it.
Call me daft but is this really required or is the dealer telling me yet another one of this white lies.
Please can someone tell me if a C.A.N. Network is really this difficult to repair and that it must be remotely reset or is this just a load of crap.
Please can anyone help.
