#13. For clarity I have never said that if you do not get your car serviced as set-out in the manual (i.e. you breach the t&cs) that Kia cannot refuse warranty claims.
#19.Please read above I have never said that if you do not follow the conditions that they cannot refuse a claim but rather that a warranty contract cannot be voided by the breach of a particular requirement.
#26. Although other people have claimed I have said it, I have NEVER ever suggested that people ignore the warranty conditions or that you ignore the service schedule.
Which part of that is difficult to understand? Why are you deliberately mis-representing what I have said?
Yet again I will confirm that just because you fail to meet one or more condition in the service booklet does not mean that Kia can cancel the warranty under UK Law.
Equally I am not suggesting that people should not "accept that they made an error and resort to the "lets claim" ideology." as you have also stated. Again you are mis-reprenting my view. I make that clear that in #26. I am simply stating that if someone made an error does not mean that a car manufacturer can automatically cancel their warranty under UK Consumer Law. That is what consumer protection Law is for.
For what its worth I get my cars serviced by the dealers as I don't think its worth the hassle doing anything else. However, that does not change the legal position and people's ability to be treated fairly under the law as I did (see #19) when it was claimed I had breached Mercedes warranty conditions by having a repair done by a none approved garage.
I have presented you with a well referenced legal position and a real world example with Mercedes that proves my argument. Why cannot you accept either of these or if you disagree present a factual counter-argument?
