Took Mrs’s platkar in for service at the dealer in luxury cars Paarl (ek sê) a week ago. Left and got a call from a 3rd party informing me of two chips on passenger side of the windscreen. They can repair it for R 380. I said no thank you, smelling a rat nearby. I said I will check it when I go to collect said platkar. On arrival the ” technician” indicated the two chips. I doubted the validity……heloooooo! Drove long distance back home and washed “goggas” of the windscreen thoroughly. No chips as indicated. Fraud! (Use the dictionary before reprimanding me on my choice of words). I reported this sudden miraculous disappearance to the rep. of the third party company. He was sceptic about my experience(not good). He arrived for inspection at my home on Westcoast. He found one small spot +/- 1 mm, no treatment necessary. The other spot was non existent.
Rep. undertook to speak to his tech. Opinion of the Platkar Dealer Principal is that as this was a recurring matter, the position of the 3rd party should be re-evaluated. The 3rd party should be gratefuI that my wife did not receive the initial call. (Ou maat…..!!!)I have recorded all the discussions from the word go should anyone want to query the validity. Gary Player said in yesterdays paper that stealing in our Country should be stopped. Tourists and Investers are becoming weary. This certainly includes fraud , scams etc. So, boys and girls, if you smell a rat, it is real. It must be a rat! Safe 4×4
