Wyatt Concorde, still complete tossers. [Sep. 13th, 2006|09:40 pm]

You'll recall that I'd had two phone calls from Gavin at Wyatt Concorde on Monday.
At half past five on Tuesday (they close at six) he phoned again, to tell me that the car was now starting and running consistently. They'd road tested it, and it would be ready to give back to me today. He'd phone me in the morning having prepared the invoice with the agreed discount, and have the car delivered round to my house during the day.
Today, he phoned me, took card numbers etc, and told me that the car would be delivered shortly, and I'd find it parked outside when I got home after work.

It was, indeed, parked outside the house. The keys were through the letterbox.

I unlocked the car successfully. I got in. I turned the key in the ignition. The dashboard lit up.

It told me I was twenty-two thousand miles overdue for my last service.

There's no answer on their phone at the moment. I'll be talking to Gavin tomorrow. I'll post again after that.

Wyatt Concorde: useless tossers.

Google for Useless Tossers and hit "I'm feeling lucky" ...

That was one of those Bad Fran This Really Isn't Funny moments. But, still, snigger.

You really hope they've been off doing Ferris Bueller stuff, but you know really that they just major-league cocked up.

I've still got eighth in google.co.uk but sixth in google.com which I hadn't previously tried. Sixth in google.de as well.

I think there are slight differences due to individual user preferences.

Weird. I'm using .co.uk and you come 7th.
In .de you come 5th for me.

.co.uk sometimes also varies depending on whether you select UK-only or not....

Google the web for "Useless Tossers" on google.com and your LJ is the first hit, followed by The Wyatt Motorgroup page.. Nice one.

Tee hee hee.

Although they probably have some already!

That's the bit I don't understand ... I don't think I've ever had a car which could tell me that :-)

(Now edited to say "my last service")

When you start the car, the dashboard odometer briefly shows the number of miles to the next service. At the moment it's showing "-22000".
