They're keeping your money? wtf?


I agree, I'd threaten them with the police if I were you. You'll still be liable for paying the loan back.

They have agreed to pay the money back, but I'm currently ignoring them, as discovered my room is now mouldy where they don't bother to clean. So fuming I wish I had the money to move out I'm so stressed right now. Everything pisses me off!!!!

Cars piss me off at the point they need their service and MOT. £800 down the drain.

The fact I always get ill when we're home and that we had made plans for this weekend. Nothing worse than trying to enjoy a night out with a sore throat and a blocked nose!

I blame work colleauges coming in when they're still unwell, last week several people were there with bugs and what not and really shouldn't have been. I understand it's not always possible to take a day off as you can't always afford to, but jeez, think of others and keep your germs to yourself. I used hand sanitiser religiously all last week and washed my hands constantly, but me being healthy for this weekend was not meant to be.

It feels like you've been financially raped when cars let you down. I had a patch about two years ago, I had an X-type Jaguar at the time, where I had to pay for the full service (£500), swiftly followed by failure to the dual-mass fly wheel (£1200), servo unit and brake master cylinder (£450) and then the air-conditioning unit (£150). Needless to say, after getting the work done I decided to sell it on so the car couldn't screw me again.

Ouch. If it had been in those realms i'd have driven it into the nearest lake. :lol:

Still, this car is my old 2001 Honda Accord and only does maybe 4,000 miles in a year these days - so i do slightly begrudge it needing that much worth of fixin' up - but i guess that's what you end up with as age creeps upon. Fair enough it needed a replacement exhaust for wear in an area where one section couldn't simply be replaced (and it's the first such replacement it's needed), and it needed a couple of new front tyres which i never skimp on, but it's the fluids and trackings and other miscellaneous re-adjustments to things that soon add up to a tidy little bundle on their own.

It pisses me off, but i still like it really :D

As much as I'm enjoying being at home, having to look after a dog is getting annoying. Constant whining and getting in the way. I've never been a dog person, and I've been trying hard to adapt, but just once it'd be nice to come downstairs in the morning and not be jumped on!

It is great when you find a car that you just love and feel totally comfortable with. I don't suppose it's too bad when you're only replacing wearing items, particularly when, as with the exhaust it has only needed one replacement. Hopefully you'll get away with any further large outlays for a couple of years.

Yeah, i'll probably keep hold of it for a bit longer yet. We're looking to change our other car at the moment, and that's the main runabout.

What did you end up getting in place of the X-Type?

I'm looking to maybe move in two or three months, so I'm really freaking out about money. I don't know if it's pissing me off, but I'd like to have four or five hundred bucks put away by then, and it's not looking good, and that's definitely stressing me out. Pretty close to pissing me off, I suppose you could say.

I feel your pain! Nothing stresses me out quite like being short of money. Hope you get it sorted, Barney.

I actually got a Hyundai diesel. 1.5l, 3 cylinder. It does 65mpg and whilst it's not as comfortable as the Jaguar it's been fantastic and costs me just over half as much to run. I had the bigger car when I was driving 130 miles each day for work, but didn't need it when I changed jobs. Now I'm doing 6 miles a day so I only need a runaround.

Thanks Lil! Feeling better today, just the sniffles now and a bit of a cough, although in a day or two I'm going to have to deal with BF who's starting to get it :wink:

I am sympathetic most of the time - he just refuses to do stuff that would help him, like taking painkillers, which gets annoying. :lol:

Good stuff. We put their i40 on a short list of estate/tourers we've considered while looking for another car. We've just ended up getting a Volvo V70 so i feel decidedly poorer now. Not even brand new but still enough to make the wallet cry.

Pissed off that they couldn't afford to pay me back but can smoke £50 of weed n spend £40 on takeaways in the two days since I returned.... Also pissed that Mcdreamy rings me at 5 to 7 in the morning, doesn't say anything when I answer and ignore my texts. Very weird!

I'm envious! I had a Volvo V70 R 2.4D as a courtesy car for three weeks after someone ran into the back of me about two and a half years ago. It was a gorgeous car to drive but it was a bit thirsty compared to the Jaguar which had a combined MPG of 50. If I needed to do the miles I was doing in the past, I would definitely consider getting a V70.
