Servicing in the south west?

Hi all, sorry to ask the same old question but, i brought my car on finance from vospers and its first service is due in 5,000 miles. will i have to take it to vospers for its service? I have had it with vospers. They have given me the worst customer service ever, have barely addressed some of the problems i stated, and a monkey could of done a better job putting my mito back together after its respray. After all that my car was given back filthy and one of the workers had put their oily mitts on my dash wipes (petty i know but that was the cherry on top).

Further more my dad has just brought a lovely 147 from a dealer in london however on the drive home it wasn't sounding great and felt like it had a issue with something knocking. The dealer had it booked into vospers for a check up just for the technician to blame it on "new brakes". After my dad to it into work and inspected it himself turns after both drivshafts are leaking and the rear nearside wheel is buckled and the belly pan?? has been hacked off.

I didn't want to brand Vospers rubbish online but i'm fed up with their lack of customer service, it seems they were more than happy to sell me the car but now they have made the sale, they couldn't give two

Sorry for my rant.

So heres the question, can my alfa be serviced else where? or must it be serviced by vospers? If it can be serviced elsewhere, does anyone have any recommendations?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

I don't know of any independents near to or in Devon, sadly, as Bensport in Somerset seems to have stopped doing Alfa work.

You might try bringing this up with Dave Allen, manager at Vospers Exeter, who seemed determined to change his company's appalling image. He registered here as username Vospers Alfa.

May be worth a complaint?

Hi Mito,

Really sorry to hear about your problems you and your family have had, as Batman said, drop Dave an email or PM, i'm not saying he will work miracles but he may be able to help, or know someone who can.

Whereabouts in Devon are you?

Hi Jay w, im in north devon thanks for showing your concerns, im also sending a letter to vospers and aruk. The thing is fiat vospers handle the customer services and ford vospers dealt with the,body repairs. Just not my week this week. Looks like some little **** has kicked a ball at my door and left it with scratches all over the drivers door right down to the primer, ironic that its been mint for over a year then its been resprayed for less than a week and its got some scracthes on it :,( thanks for your support guys i will keep you informed at whats going to happen.
