Simon took Tina into JCT600 Aston Martin in Leeds yesterday as her heated seats are not working properly. Simon being Simon just wants the car right – he doesn’t have much intention of using the car when the seat heaters are actually required. Plus there is a warranty on the car, so best make use of it to repair the seats in fairness.
Simon got a call later on in the day yesterday to find that the near side shock absorber at the front is leaking so they are proposing to fix / replace it accordingly. The passenger seat heater is working properly apparently although the heater element is broken on the drives side – hence will be replaced. On top of this, she needs new brake pads at the rear at a small cost of just over £400 (gulp) showing how Aston Martin ownership is going to work out :-(.
Today, another call from the dealership to advise that the warranty company are sending an assessor out to the dealership given that the claim is greater than £1000. It is looking unlikely that the car will be back before the weekend sadly.
