Prestige Engine Products Ltd — Failure
Bought a reconditioned engine and new turbo charger in 2007. Engine failed after 6000 miles (13 months) with a diagnosis of a cracked engine block!!! Had a real fight to get the faulty engine free of charge and the cost of pulling the engine out and put the new one in. Went to court but they settled in full 3 days before the scheduledcourt hearing. The second engine failed 18000 miles later (24 months)!! Diagnos: slipped cylinder liner creating surpressure in the cooling system, then blown head gasket. Again complained but asked for a refund this time as I have absolutely no trust in the products they supplied nor the company. Filed a court claim in July 09 in Winchster County Court clain number 9WC00718, jugement in my favor 30th April 2010 with Prestige Engine Products Ltd ordered to pay the total of £4555.58 by May 25th which they did not! Will issue Warrant of Execution on May 26th at which time the bailiffs will go knocking at their door to get payment!! DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMANY! They are bad news! They seem to slap engines together to last barely 12 months and then claim that the warranty hasa expired!! They obviously do not want to know about the Sale of Goods Act 1979 which stipulate that a customer can claim against a supplier for up to 6 years for goods of not reasonable quality or not fit for purpose. I wonder how they have managed to stay in business that long!! Now that hey have a CCJ against them, they will have the surprise to be turned down by their bank should they require an extended overdraft facility or a loan!!
