Is This An Actual Thing?


Recommended Posts

Just had a call from my daughter who has a 2014 Vauxhall Meriva. She's been contacted by someone representing the main dealer in Edinburgh, Peter Vardy who says they are contacting Meriva owners and offering to buy the car for breaking/spares as they no longer make the Meriva and with new parts available they are trying to stock up.

Anyone heard of this or similar? Is it a thing or a scam?

Seems strange like a scam , try calling them on their website details and see if they confirm - or try via f/b?

not sure the Meriva is in the same class🤔

Meriva and class in the same sentence. Blimey, you are a wag Barry!

Seems strange coming from a main dealer. Surely they're not looking to sell second hand parts and would rather push a new vehicle instead of going out of their way to find parts for an 'old' model.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Aha!  Turned my own weapon upon me.

But I think 5 shillings is fair.

So yes, it was legit, so they say, but was obviously a ruse to get her in to the showroom. I told her not to sign anything but you know what women are like. At least she's inherited my negotiating skills - did a part ex deal on a nice 5 door Corsa, 4 years newer, half the mileage and much better suited to her needs i.e. its unlikely to break down as much (she still has a use for her old Dad....), 12 months warranty for free, old finance deal settled and she's walked away with £15/month less than she was paying for the Meriva. So turned out alright I guess. 

And the Meriva? Yeah, they'll probably just scrap it they said......
