What are your immediate thoughts? Should I persevere in the hopes that the cure (that the Dealer has never had to undertaken before) will be permanent and that no damage is inflicted on the roof paintwork (or anywhere else such as interior trim/roof lining or door apertures which Technicians will undoubtedly stand on for better access)? Or should I reject the car before going any further?
The excitement of this new car has reduced to zero. In view of the time taken to order a new part/tool each time and the resultant time required to execute the repair TO AS NEW STANDARDS (which I have some doubts about), I would like to ask for a replacement car to exactly the same specification, but do not have the financial resources to "fight" my case if it is not considered cut and dry that my request is totally justified.
Rejection of this car and replacement at no cost, by an identically specified car, WITH THE PROVISOES OUTLINED in my previous response to your good self.
