If your car has developed a fault, or for consumer advice, turn to Honest John by emailing [email protected] Completely nuts My ageing Volvo XC70 passed its MoT after replacement of a left-front wishbone joint. One day later, after a 30-mile motorway journey, the wheel came off while I was exiting a junction.

If this is how this store operates, I would take your business elsewhere. However, if this truly is the best deal around on the RV of your choice, what you could do is take the loan then immediately pay it off.
