    I was in a Mercedes dealership yesterday and asked about Motorhome base vehicle warranty. The base vehicle warranty starts when it leaves Mercedes therefore the warranty is running while it is waiting to have the Motorhome body fitted and also whilst it is sat on a dealership forcourt waiting to be sold. It is not uncommon to find the warranty has run out before you drive it off the forecourt.You can check the age of base vehicle by going to a Mercedes dealership with the chassis number or a quick look at the date of the tyres will give you a rough idea but this is not as good as getting the chassis number.I do not know if Fiat is the same but might be a good idea to check.

    You might want to check my post from earlier in the week. If the vehicle didn't come in to the UK via Mercedes Benz UK you might only have two years warranty on it. Ours is going back to the Mercedes Benz Van Dealer on Saturday for a brake fluid change on Saturday. Will ask them when they think the warranty period starts. Will keep you updated.

    I would have thought that under the Sale of Goods Act, the warranty must start from the date of first registration at DVLA to the retail purchaser and that would apply to all new vehicles irrespective
