There is nothing worse than trying to contact a site without an email. It gets even worse when trying to contact a Ford main dealershit, I mean dealership.This explains why not to trust Fords and their dealershits any longer (obviously I mean Ford dealerships).
I purchased a newer car recently from Chariots, London Road, Romford. What a great car, reasonable price, diesel, and reasonable mileage.
Then we decided to purchase a newer car from Allens of Romford, Allens of Romford are a very well known dealership which was deemed to have a lot of respect (not any longer, they are a bunch of f***** scumbags). In fact they are the biggest bunch of scumbags around (that I currently know). They stitched us up for every last penny in insurance deals, then refused to give us the second key for the car, and conveniently forgot to give us the MOT certificate for the same new car.
Obviously, I am not one in taking this quietly, and several email later to the Trading Standards & other interested parties including the DVLA, and fraud office. Here is a typical email :

I have just completed purchase of a 4 year old vehicle from Allen Ford of Romford. The purchase price was about £9000, and also I purchased three separate additional insurances, i.e. a warranty to ensure that the car was finance–free, safe and in a valid condition. A second insurance was a three year warranty against breakdown. A third warrant was a gap insurance in case the car is ever stolen, this insurance would increase the amount to the cost of the car purchase.
Firstly, the company refused to give my wife the MOT certificate and the spare key for the car at collection time as we had lost the MOT for our own vehicle. This was explained and the alleged dealer was not sure if this was a problem – idiot. There was no haggling over the price offered and therefore totally unreasonable.
Secondly, the costs of the car, including the three insurances, and the credit agreement were scribbled on the back of an envelope; and I am unclear what I have been charged for. This is not good practise or legal considering the amounts spent. There is no clear documentation on the cost of credit either, just a lot of scribbles.
I am not particularly happy with this level of trade as it was as we entered into this agreement through good faith, and I would not expect a main dealership to deal with their customers in such a shoddy manner. The paperwork is also appalling. This is especially so, considering all of the various extra costs incurred which appear to have little effect on the final outcome.
Can you advise whether I am entitled to a full refund for this vehicle if they continue to be unreasonable.
