Re: One new car sale lost - Is this now the norm?

To be honest we didn't get that far. We were so taken a back by their tone of take it or leave it, we left.

Re: One new car sale lost - Is this now the norm?

Yep................................Normal procedure at lots of places now. We just had our Zoe serviced and had to do it for the loan car. They did say that the copy would be destroyed after we handed the car back and would not be held on file. I hired a van last week and had to do the same. Isn't ...

Re: One new car sale lost - Is this now the norm?

This is a matter of principle. I have no objections to checks being made, what I do (or my wife) object to is personal information being retained when it is no longer required. This is completely against one of the fundamental principles of GDPR. It is a protection put in law to protect the individu...

Re: One new car sale lost - Is this now the norm?

So why would they insist on keeping it on file even after a test drive. Still don't see why they need a copy if they have seen the real thing. Do they think a photo-copy is going to make my wife drive better? We are being constantly advised to protect our personal details, but its OK for a copy of y...

My wife is looking to buy a new car and we had the following scenario yesterday. Wife -"Hello we arranged for a test drive in a xxxxxxxx" Dealer - "Oh yes, have you got your driving licence?" Wife - "Yes, here it is" Dealer - "I just need to make a copy of it for insurance purposes" Wife - "Why? you...

Re: Reversing camera view changed

Did anyone ever get to the bottom of this. Mine changed this morning while reversing, I saw it happen. Before I could see the kerb running along the back of the car, now the bumper is in the line of vision. Points to note, software/firmware has not been touched. Car not connected to wi-fi / Internet...

Re: Tec'

I may have looked back to the ' good ol' days' in my earlier post but don't get me wrong I wouldn't want to return to them. This is the first car I have had with traffic sign recognition, never needed it before but wouldn't be without it now. Whenever I spec up a car I can't help myself by adding ju...
