Is anybody else interested in a class action against the following?
Singapore flight October 3 2012 SQ223. My wife never eats chicken she hasn't cooked and left the chicken. I ate mine and was very very sick. She wasn't.
- Singapore Airlines - I got food poisoning flying Singapore to Perth.
- South Perth 4 Wheel Drive Rentals. I rented a motorcycle from them which broke down.
- Another, removed due to settlement of claim.
Singapore Airlines denies responsibility, of course.*
The faulty bike had minimal teeth on the back sprocket and could not complete the return journey to the Pinnacles from Perth.
I was fortunate to get a lift from guys in a light truck for over 200 km home.
The firm picked up the bike and the driver did not notice any damage, but I lost my deposit because of falsely claimed bent handlebars. No refund for my hire day lost!
I have removed another company from my class action list as part of a settlement; I received partial compensation.
If you remember the name of this company, I am still available to give evidence.
More than half the compensation I received was taken up by court costs, and I agreed to withdraw my graphic and name of the retailer.
It cost me more than fees, computer time, printing, and not to mention stress and my time I could be doing something productive. But I will not hesitate to do it again if offended!
Selling goods that are not of merchantable quality is supposed to result in a refund without argument.
The product was NOT retread tyres. But I use this product as an analagy. And I add this is not a warning about retread tyres.
If you bought retread tyres with the promise they were nearly as good as new, you would expect them to last a reasonable time. If new lasted 90,000 km you would expect at least 75 - 80,000 km.
And you would not expect tyres to get out of balance after say 5,000 km, nor would you expect tyre dust in your mudguards.
