    Mileage charges on contract car

    Mileage charges on contract car 10th Feb 18 at 11:43 AM
    I bought a car on finance with VW in 2015, which had an annual mileage limit. However I was told that if I handed the car back before my contract ended (either exchange or give the car back and walk away) then the mileage limit would not apply and I would not incur any additional charge. However after speaking to them today, they tell me that according to an FCA change, this no longer stands and I am liable to the additional mileage charges. Please can you confirm if this is the case and if it applies to contracts taken out before the change was made.

    Thanks in advance

    Right, well on reading that i'm big enough to admit i was wrong and i therefore apologise.

    I will apply that to my future responses accordingly on the subject of exceeding contract miles.

    I genuinely never thought they would take it to a county court - interesting that they will an do.

    Apologies - i was wholly wrong on that one.
