Lunar Caravans Bad Faults

Recommended Posts

I would like to warn anyone who bought a Lunar last year to:

 

1) Have your tyres checked for splits. Apparantly Lunar had a bad batch. They have changed them as people have found them. Why they do not have a recall as they would do in the car industy only they know. I had a masssive split in one of mine and was only driving down the M6 the week before. :angry:

 

2) Check your gas locker to see if it locks properly, mine looked like it was locked and wasn't, this happened to someone else and we both have Zeniths. :(

 

I have wriiten to the managing director twice regarding these issues and the many other faults I have had and I have not had a reply :angry:

 

Cheers Alan :D

Hi

 

I would think that Avondale would have got around a full recall by writing to all purchasers advising them of the tyre fault although they would still not capture all those who have purchased a nearly new van seconhand. (and from what you say they haven't written anyway)

 

Interesting one but the Trading Standards office are the guys who need to know. They will talk to Avondale and discover their thought process in not doing a recall and take whatever action they think appropriate

 

Regards

Have I missed something here? Why would Avondale write to owners of Lunar caravans, or is this a fault that may apply to more than one manufacturer?

hi have just been off the phone to a guy called Minola the director of Lunar regarding the tyres spliting. He has said that he has a report that states that none of the tyres supplies by Lunar are dangerous he is aware of the tyres splitting but has said that it is only the outer skin and is not DANGEROUS I guess we can quote him on that one.

I read this post and thought as I have not heard from my dealer it won't affect me! Took the van for service on Friday and I have to replace the tyres and get the old tyres and recipt to the dealer who will get me a refund from Lunar. I think I should have checked this out when I read it first.

Have I missed something here? As I understand the Sale of Goods Act(1973 &c) your contract is with the supplying dealer. Why have you got to wait for a refund from Lunar? Whether it's a warranty problem or not, it is the dealer's responsiblity to claim the refund from the manufacturer, not up to you to claim and chase for a refund. Or is the Caravas industry different?? :huh:

I'm sure you are right regarding the sale of goods act, I will see what they say when I take the old tyres in. So long as I get a refund I will not be too bothered, life is too short.
