  1. Grassed him up!! I thought they were best buds!
  2. We have just started trying this. We give away a 3 month VGS warranty with every deal and then try and up sell to 12 months or longer. We now say that if they leave a review we will bump up their warranty by an extra 3 months FOC. It only costs us an extra £20 on average and seems to work. Those you don't want to upgrade get the chance of a free 6 month warranty
  3. Could also be an actuator which wouldn't be too bad to sort out
  4. Common problem on the older Grand Cherokees which come from the same company. The blend door spindles disintegrate with old age. There are a few people selling kits to repair these which involve cutting a hole on the side of the heater box and replacing the doors with a re designed version. Its not a bad job on the Jeep but no idea about the Journey, I'm sure there will be some stuff somewhere online about it.
  5. Cheers for that but I managed to get it bought back in the end
  6. Gentlemen Can anyone recommend a trade friendly workshop in the Hastings area. I have one down there that I need to get inspected and diagnosed by somebody who knows what they are doing. Any suggestions much appreciated Ta
  7. I do advertise with them and have been for many years. We try and monitor where our enquiries come from and I would say that on average probably 80% of our sales come from them. I did cancel them last year but didn't even make the full month without them because it was like a tap had been turned off. We are also on Cargurus and Ebay. Nothing would make me happier than kicking them into touch but I don't think I would survive with the few deals that come from elsewhere
  8. I haven't got access either despite asking a couple of times and but to be honest there are some things I would much rather be posting away from the general public's eyes. I cringe sometimes when I see what some post in the public domain.
  9. If ever there was a thread that belonged in the private members section, this might be it!
  10. Just been asked to take in a 2014 A Class with this message showing up. The guy reckons it's only been on since someone clouted his door mirror a couple of weeks ago. Looking online it seems to be a common issue across the Mercedes range with it often coming on totally randomly. Anyone come across it before?
  11. How do you put cars on this Facebook Marketplace, I'm with Spidersnet and they can't feed our stock onto it at present.
  12. I would say 100% you are being had. Don't ever take large amounts on Paypal as they can unwind the deal so easily. Classic scammer if you ask me. I would be telling him to jog on
  13. We are absolutely dead and have been since the kids broke up for Easter last month, we had a blinding start to April with 10 deals in the first 10 days but only 4 since then! It's like our advertising has been turned off and I check it daily to make sure it hasn't. Trouble is it makes you wonder whether you suddenly have all the wrong stock. I have got be honest this is happening more and more often now and I am seriously considering giving my site up. With all the overheads including staff and a £3K Autotrader bill each month, its easy to go backwards very quickly indeed. I currently have 26 advertised and so far this month have had no more than 6 enquiries, I kid you not, It's a joke
