I will answer on his behalf as he has gone down the pub for some reason with Clairol.

Basically the cam belt that was allegedly changed six months ago shredded at about 15 mph as he was coming to a stop.

Being up near Buckingham involved dear old Dad (me) calling on his RAC membership to get him home and sitting around trying to help him decide the future of his car as he paid out £900 a month ago for a clutch and his insurance renewal came in on Saturday at £1760, which at the time was a good price as it was down nearly £500 on last year.

There is a warranty with the car and hopefully this will cover this one, but all the concerns about getting a pukka job done without delays raise their ugly little heads.

Bad enough when something thats had plenty of 'use' goes wrong, let alone something that was supposedly new(ish) :(

Hope it all gets sorted under warranty although I can understand the trepidation that comes with dealing with warranty claim jobs :rolleyes:

If you need anymore big ugly bastid Skyline owners to help 'resolve' any warranty queries let me know ;) :D

Cheers chaps.

The garage came and pick the car up this morning from home, am now awaiting to collect loan car on Wednesday afternoon, then waiting for them to let me know the full extent of damage. It is covered by the warranty so will have minimum charges to cover. Will have the car RAC & AA checked when all work is done to ensure a pukka job. Just dont know what to do when its all sorted. Hmmm i feel another thread coming along here.
