Deleting this sucker as having the constant reminder and questioning of the authenticity of my claim even in light of all the supporting evidence is causing more stress than shaming those clowns is worth.
an intermittent fault does not necessarily make it unroadworthy. you weren't to know that it would fail this time, and you can demonstrate that you tried to get it fixed, several times under warranty, so you should make a claim. they can take it up with Mitsubishi on your behalf.Have already followed procedure, due to the value of the claim VCAT is costing $467. I still need to tell my insurer I crashed a car I knew wasn't roadworthy too.
Good luck with it, can't understand why it has to be so hard.
I made a decision years ago, that none of my money would go the that
company ever again if I could help it. After the purchase of a large split
system aircon that was nothing but trouble from day one till the end of the
warranty period 5 years later, when it was immediately replaced with a
Panasonic that's been faultless.
I've thrown so much money at it with accessories I'll lose an awful lot of money so selling it isn't ideal, I'll see where VCAT takes me.
It was a good idea taking it to VCAT, they are getting a lot of car related cases as we are so soft in Australia and dealers will try nearly anything on
it will be interesting to see if Mistu decided to settle with you prior
Yep, van for work means all expenses are tax deductible. . . . company vehicle after all, and then buy a toy you like for play!I have always had a bit of a thing for discos but really needed the Ute and didn't want to spend more money to use it for work. I do seem to like unreliable cars as I also drove a couple jk wranglers and still see myself in one also I owned an Alfa 159...going to a disco will be a step forward in reliability.
I should buy a van for work and a real 4x4 for play. Funny story, my mate just today paid $885 to have a brand new hub fitted to his brand new mq triton after it slipped into a rut at a crawl and bent it ... Presumably what is causing my steering to be out also after coming off the road last week so upon a quick search it seems common to bend them on MQs...so much for being an offroad car, it seems I should go out with the Subaru outback club in the future.
