Madness Poor Dealer Service Again..!

Having purchased a 156 2.4jtd in April from a main dealer in the Midlands have just found out that it has missed its 48000 mile service. I bought it at 52000 miles as an approved used car advertised with FSH etc on checking the terms of the breakdown warranty as it has the usual airbag problems I checked the service history and realised it was overdue a service so i contacted the dealer and they said.......! leave it until the 60000 mile service it will fine, so it would be 16000 miles overdue for service, with a big gap in it's service history and a Mechanical Breakdown Warranty not worth the paper it's written on. They really are special...! Contacted Alfa UK waiting for a reply, this could be a job for trading standards.
