A friend leased a brand new Nissan car from a garage on the Felling By-Pass for 3 years. At the end of the 3 years three men from an Auction in Washington came to take it away. They were contracted to collect it by the Garage, but said it wasn't going to their auction. They spent 30 mins going over and over the car looking for faults or damage and presented my friend with a bill for £845.
Some people would have paid, but my friend fought it because the car was in excellent condition, nearly as good as the day he got it. They saw a dent in the carpet where the drivers heel had worn the carpet and they put it down as a hole in the floor. Luckily my friend photographed everything they were 'making up'. It took a few months but the £845 was reduced to £0.
