    General rant ( can you guess the car)

    Earlier, I had to pull over on A3 soft shoulder ( is that a thing? ) due to the rear door on my lorry not being closed properly. So whack the hazards on, run round secure it, then back to the cab. I follow pulling on to the carriageway protocol, I speed up to 50 and indicate. The middle lane...

    Green oaks MB ascot rant

    Hi all, just wondered if anyone has dealt with these clowns? Maybe it's because I drive a Vito that I don't get the service I pay for or get any communication from these guys once they've had my money. Still waiting for a new remote for my auxiliary heating and it's been now two months since...

    Just a rant. e300td. MOT. Honesty etc.

    I thought I was onto a good buy when I purchased another E300 a nice tidy and surface rust free example, only 145k on the clock and nil advisories on the MOT. However after two weeks and nearly 1000miles driven the list of problems is growing! electrical issues, glow plugs need doing, now...

    Credit Card Mini Rant Time

    Because I'm a bit bored. On renewing my insurance with Aviva I note that there's a credit card charge of 0.5% of the total transaction - what horsesh!t. Usually those justifying c/c fees argue that it covers the processing and electronic transfer etc. So bigger numbers must be harder to...

    Rant alert - Utter intelligence insulting rubbish from Mercedes Benz?

    At a recent get-together (Brooklands) I met one of the previous owners of my W124 E36. He told me that my car was originally a MB press car when it was first registered in the UK. On the strength of this, I wrote to MB and asked if they could confirm if that was indeed the case. All I...

    Rant: Workplace Visa

    In the last few days, my daughter's American house-mate gained her MSc Cancer Studies (Distinction). She wants to remain in this country to apply her knowledge and experience in the NHS. The problem is that her student Visa expires at the end of the month: without it, she will have no choice but...

    Wasteful Society or Grumpy Old Man's Rant?

    Folks This has annoyed me probably more than it should. I can't help feeling annoyed at it. What do you think. I had to visit my local chemist store (large chain that sounds like it could be a bank). I had to buy a particular brand of wipes (nuff said on that please). Great news they had...

    Rant of the Day: KLM!

    Rant of the day... need to vent. I travel for work, flying 2-4 times a week, and normally fly BA for loyalty card reasons. A month ago, I noticed that KLM had a petroleum club, which granted me some privileges in Schiphol, so I signed up and got confirmation that I had signed up successfully...

    Rant: Vaccines

    So I've started looking at medical stuff for my little road trip. Why do so many travel clinics have hidden prices? Take an example, one large clinic (chain) that shall remain nameless in London charges £40 for the first consultation and then £20 for any subsequent doses that are needed for...

    Sunny Credit. Caution - Rant alert.

    In our area this mob are doing a lot of TV advertising. Mrs P even had a letter from them today. Turns out if you borrow £350 for 12 months you repay..... £1267.80! A £917.80 charge for credit or 1971% APR! How can this be allowed? It's preying off those least...

    Cold Caller Rant

    Have to get this off my chest, so rant time. Just had to shout at a cold caller to 'get off my property'. He got the message but I feel a bit bad, but after asking me five times, enough was enough. After getting woken up (I work night shifts) is one thing, but to completely ignore what...

    A small rant about Admiral

    My wife and I have both had our cars insured with Admiral for a couple of years now, although it was never worthwhile going for the multicar option as it made very little difference. We have just changed one of our cars to a C63 and this coincided with a policy renewal date so we did the usual...

    Kwik Fit rant...

    ...I was tasked with fixing the exhaust on my wife's Rav4 this morning. The rear silencer had separated from the pipe running the length of the car. When I got the area cleaned up I could see the original flange on the back box had rusted off (and yet this is not a Mercedes). Since both pipes...

    MPG figures RANT!

    My father in law commutes to work, 2 miles. He makes the occasional journey oop north from Surrey to see us, a 400 miles round trip. That's all he does in his ML350, around 5k a year. He want's to replace his ML for something different, another Mercedes, but he's preoccupied with MPG figures...
