Hello all,Hello Jules,
I guess it's up to you, they want you to walk away quietly, that's not the way to enforce YOUR RIGHTS, the AC units are a KNOWN problem, WORLDWIDE, so the warranty as such doesn't come into it, it was known to be faulty by Honda UK and Honda EVERYWHERE long before your unit failed. The warranty is one thing, expectation of serviceability and reasonable life expectancy is another.
If I were you I would make up some placards, park right in front of the Dealership, lift the bonnet up, stick a HUGE PLACARD under the bonnet, with something like
DON'T RELY ON
Make a scene of it, and when they come out to ask you what you're up to, tell them you are waiting for the local paper and one of the National newspapers to turn up, it's EASY to get the local media to do a story, they are BEGGING for a story that they have to find EVERY DAY.
Don't walk away quietly, that's what they want you to do, make a fuss, they WILL BACK DOWN, do you think they want prospective buyers to see you marching up and down with a placard, or two, or three on the car. If you need ANY advice on how to go about it, send me a PM, if we can do that in here ?
