    8months ago I purchased a new van from Elite Motorhomes of Banbury. Not their fault but this one has been plagued with quite serious faults, I have had running battles with the manufacturer (british) with some success. Elite however have slowly, cheerfully and competently worked there way through them. I have never lost my rag with them however frustrating the van has been. And today collecting my van with the final problem fixed, though wondering what was next. They said to me that don't like unhappy customers and as I had genuinely had more than my fair share. I still don't believe it !!!!!! they with some support from the Manufacturer are prepared to give me a totally new 2016 van, same make, same model at no financial disadvantage to myself, So in 2/3 weeks time I pick up my new van and they will change over my towbar FOC as well, as they cant run to a new one. Please wake me up, I just cant believe it. Who says being polite and reasonable doesn't pay. The Dealer is ELITE MOTORHOMES , MIDDLETON CHEYNEY. Banbury.

    I collected my new Carthago from Elite on Tuesday, and I have to say I found them to be pleasant, helpful and very much customer orientated in an old fashioned kind of way. A very nice experience, and unlike my last purchase (from a different dealer) in nearly every way possible. I got the distinct impression that they actually valued my custom!

    Good result, and good on the manufacturer who have probably stood a good chunk of the cost (y)

    I can't get my head round that. Your van is sorted to your satisfaction yet they are going to give you a new one. It just does not add up.

    I said sorted, I didn't say I was satisfied, and with my record there will be more down the road. But still cant believe it. Mind you the wifes comment was, "we don't have to go through all those problems again do we" As far as Elite are concerned on the original purchase I echo what Bob The Bass said. You need to drive a little further south than Newark

    Lightning doesn't strike twice......................

    Oh yes it does.

    You are dead right, taking the offer does mean taking the risk. At least he know what faults to looks for now.

    I think I'd prefer to keep the van that is fixed but be compensated for all the time and diesel in the process.
