Retuning a car on warranty, yes or no

Hi

Have you ever bought a car from a dealer which had warranty, but you were afraid to take the car back for warranty work to be carried out, through fear of finding that they damaged something that you will have to put right out of your own pocket

I bought a car from a dealer which had new brake drums, pads and fluid replaced as part of the deal, a few weeks later, I noticed that there were finger and hand print marks all over the paintwork, on close inspection I could see that it was as a result of brake fluid causing the paint to bubble,

So to get out of this problem, I pxed the car for another one with the same dealer,

I had the car for a week or two and noticed a few problems, the dealer said I could take it back for warranty work

would you take it back or fix it yourself.

If you are going to allow someone to work on your car then you need to place your trust in that person. Clearly that particular dealer has lost your trust so I don't see how it is going to work for you.

Hi ya

If my car goes in for work i wash and clean it inside and out. As they say if you want to know every inch of you car wash and polish it.
When I book the car in I take the service guy out and go over the car with him and make him put on the booking in sheet he has checked it and not to wash the car, I then take a copy. My local mini dealer has been doing this for a while now.
So before leaving after your service/repair you go back over it with him again anything wrong you have proof.

The main trouble is if your car is under warrantee and you work on it and do something wrong or use a non original part it would give them an excuse not to honer any other warrantee work
