Advice Needed

Post by Pyranha » Sun Jan 21, 2018 1:58 pm

Guys,
Need some advice on tyres just fitted to wife's Focus.
Ordered Michelin cross climates as I liked the sound of the latest improved version.
Invoice shows CC+, which is what I expected.
However, tyres on the car are not the + version. Date marking on one is 2315, ie 2 1/2 years old! :shock: :x . No sign of a date on the other.
Planning to take car back and point this out. Trouble is I know the manager well and don't want to fall out with him, but I want NEW CC+
I reckon they were stiffed by their Southern tyre supplier.

Thoughts?
Thanks, cheers

Quite simple..

You don't need to rant or rave and fall out with the guy. Just go back and suggest there's been a simple mixup somewhere and you're concerned that the wrong tyres have been fitted.

Yup, clearly a simple mix-up somewhere, and you'd like what you paid for.

No different to ordering an iPhone X and accidentally being sent an iPhone 4.
