MOT's Cancelled and no Services

Post by JK-VWTiguanR » Thu Mar 26, 2020 3:44 pm

Just had an e-mail from my dealer saying our cars service has been cancelled and the other cars MOT is cancelled and has been given six months grace.

Must be heartbreaking for anyone wanting there new car who maybe is a key worker and will need it for work.

The 6 months grace only applies to expiries after 1st April! but apparently authorities will be "lenient" if any that expired before that couldn't be renewed!

Fair enough given the circumstances, as a GP I would encourage all non-necessary stuff to be ditched...my own repair has been cancelled as it doesnt affect my driving but my dealer has been flat out to turn around all the nhs key worker jobs and will shut their workshop once the last one is released...even if working through the night...Bravo to them.

From next Monday the 30th actually. Thought the date was odd till I realised it was the start of the week.

I do wonder why they didn't do it with immediate effect as I've seen several posts on other forums I use of people being in some difficulty with expiry dates within March.

Apparently manufacturers are being 'urged' to be lenient with people if their cars develop faults that should be covered under warranty but they haven't been able to meet the 'regularly serviced' requirements!
Tornado Red Golf SV SE 1.4TSI DSG at present... Was looking to order a facelifted Tiguan SEL in 2020 - if they offer one in a bright blue again! :)

Good point, can you image what would come of that.

It would be a very interesting conversation.
