I got a service in january on a 2017 hyundai i10. I bought it in september from arnold clark. After the service the oil was slowly draining (no visible leaks, no puddles where i park). Up until the last month and a half it wasnt too bad then i was all of a sudden having to fill the oil from minimum to maximum roughly every 3 days (i drive 50 miles to work and 50 miles home monday to friday).
It was an arnold clark renault garage that serviced the car. The car is in with an arnold clark hyundai garage (further away from home hence why the service wasn't done there) and they said i have 1 week left of warranty left (hyundai's 5 year warranty as arnold clark only give 60 days).
If they dont take the engine out before the end of this week (they claim there busy) then it wont be covered and if they take the engine out theres a chance it wont be covered anyway and will cost me around £750 or more to fix.
Do i have any leg to stand on?
When the car is fixed and the mot is done im going to trade the car in for hopefully a plug in hybrid, currently paying £126 a month fornthe car, its a 5 year loan. Willing to go up a bit if it saves a big chunk on my current £400 a month on petrol.
Closest chargers are an hour walk away and my work has chargers so a hybrid would be ideal.
