Admiral, after being initially very supportive, stated today that until a fault with the accelerator was identified as the cause of my crash, they would not pay out for any courtesy car or repair, or even the recovery. I spoke to the Renault Body shop who were ready to start the repair and deliver a courtesy car (at my expense). So I have had to decline the courtesy car. The body shop say that they have not seen any recalls or servicing bulletin’s regarding the accelorator ‘sticking’…“It hasn’t happenened to them in their workshop” - doh - it’s nice and dry there! So the body shop have recommended that the car has to go to ‘service’ to check for any faults at additional cost. If no fault can be found, it is suggested that there would be a case of driver error that can then result in a claim. However, Admiral have their own ‘repair’ centres and want two quotes for work if I don’t use their preferred bidder… So I would then have the hassle of swapping the car to another body shop or having to get a rival go and see the car to offer an alternative quotation. So I am potentially left with a £1200 bill for parts + Labour + recovery. Renault Insurance services who assisted in the recovery have stated that it is my insurance companies job to persue a claim against mechanical fault, and not Renaults obligation to investigate my claim… So after what appears to have been a day when I spent every available minute on the phone in between doing my job, I am no further ahead, in fact I am in a much worse position as neither Admiral or Renault can offer any help as they cannot replicate the accelerator problem.
