A busted gearbox

Asked by Sheryl Kennedy

MY FOUR-YEAR-OLD Peugeot 206 XR has done 47,000 km and has been well looked after and serviced regularly. A couple of months ago it began to sound like a bus. It turned out a bearing had come loose and had gone right through the gearbox. My warranty had expired, but Peugeot offered to pay 30 per cent of the bill. Do you think this is good enough or should I try to fight this more?

IN SITUATIONS like this, carmakers generally take the view that you have had four years of trouble-free motoring so they won't pay for the whole repair. But 30 per cent sounds a pretty poor offer to me, I would go for at least 50 per cent.
