      dont go there

      the customer service i recieved from harratts nissan wakefield was appalling, firstly the test drive booked by nissan caused them a bit of a caffuffle as they hadn't updated their white board, (how pathetic is that) i got the general feeling you would of preferred me to go away as it was rather inconvenient to have a cash buyer stood waiting, i should of just walked out at that point. out in the car i wasnt shown any of the features on the vehicle - didnt get opportunity to experience the different drive modes or learn anything more about the car than have a basic drive in it. furthermore nobody got back to me with a p/x price for my car, and when i tried chasing for a p/x deal, since i cant remember the name of the person who took me out on a test drive i am not able to be assisted in buying a nissan juke, i told them they can go bollocks, clearly the "guy due in to collect his juke in half an hour" was more important than selling me one. i was given the crappiest piece of paper to go away with, and it was hardly legible at that, just a photocopy of the juke prices/ specification extras, why not just write them on some loo roll? i was obviously not worthy of a proper colour brochure, i can promise you i will be buying a juke, accenta sport or tekna but not from these guys

      If you like shaving with a razor but don't like all the mess surrounding shaving mousse or gels, this is good.
      Simply shake, spray, shave,.. quick rinse and go! Lovely legs fully moisturised and looking good!
      Quick and effortless, the only thing to watch out for is, if you shave your armpits then try to apply deoderant without actually washing off the oil with soap, your deoderant may not work.
      Good for sensitive skins that are easily irritated, since most shaving related irritations are caused by friction and stripped moisture.
      Recently I have switched to an electric shaver which is not as good on the bikini line or armpits but I was getting bored with the old shaving routine. (wish the little blighters would just vanish for good)

      Has anyone found if the shaving products- claiming to reduce the hair growth - actually work? My hesitation in trying one of these, is that the product may become absorbed into the skin and then make the hair !!! ON MY HEAD stop growing and THIN out!! (bit extreme yes I know, but have the manufacturers tested these products long term effects enough?) ...there's gonna be someone who it'l happen to, every woman's worst nightmare.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        This was our 2nd trip to Venice and by no means were we disappointed with our allocated Hotel. We had been given an upgrade since the Hotel we were supposed to have been staying in was over booked. Compared to the Hotel Aquileia which we had stayed in last year this was pure luxury.

        On arrival we were delighted with the small but very stylish pool area, the room was fantastic, loads of storage space, a fridge, a safe, air conditioning, t.v. very posh bathroom with proper corner shower and a really long balcony.
        I say proper shower because in Venice they usually have very basic showering facilities, ie. the shower is usually in between the toilet and sink with a drain hole in the middle of the room and everything in the bathroom gets wet including loo rolls!

        The dining room was fairly elaborate, but the best tables had definately been given to the Germans, we got put round a corner but didn't mind because it was quieter and fairly romantic.
        Food was excellent, I felt like I had been to a health farm as the portions were just right and every dish was delicious, my fiance however was left feeling hungry and disappointed with his selected choice of the menus.

        The maids came every day but Sunday to clean and the bed linen was changed on every occassion, very nice, and the towels were changed twice a day! yes twice, on an evening they would come back round before you went for your evening meal to ask if you would like fresh towels and a new bathmat.

        The only reservation I have about the Italians is that they can be quite rude, unless you are very loud and in their face, which they seem to prefer.
        It is wrong that they dont give as good a service to the English just because Germans are renowned for tipping bigger, how will they ever know what you were to tip them, had they given you as good a treatment? you kind of feel like right I won't bother then... the Italians certainly do not tip, they have the attitude that they are getting paid in any case and it's their country so why bother.

        I have read other people's reviews on Lido Di Jesolo and some have compared it to the likes of Blackpool, this is totally unfounded in the areas we have stayed, and we have been twice now. I can not imagine where they had stayed because Blackpool it certainly is not! It's a place where you can feel nice and relaxed with no worries and the surroundings are usually very clean and stylish.

        Venice being just a short bus trip and a ferry away, Lido Di Jesolo is the perfect resort for romantic couples and families alike to enjoy the perfect beach holiday with fascinating days out to places such as Croatia. Venice by day or night is simply magical. It is relatively cheap to go Island hopping, Murano, for it's famous glass, Burrano for a truely unspoilt Island, get the ferry over to Venice one evening and soak up the truely romantic atmosphere, you won't be disappointed! There are usually 3 orchestras which take turn in what seems to be an amusing competion with one another, each one takes their turn to out do the last. The history and the architecture combined with the atmosphere is a totally unique experience, it is for everyone whether you are young or old, rich or poor.

          • "the customers"

          After my daughter said she had been to the Walnut Tree in Wakefield, West Yorkshire and reported back that it was nice, we thought we would give it a try one day, she is only 11 years old but seemed to know what's good. I didn't actually know it was a wacky warehouse until we had got there.
          Firstly I could not believe how greasy the seats were, they had a thick black sheen over the worn out fabric, the restaurant reminded me of a cross between a caravan park clubhouse and a supermarket cafe and it was definately in need of a refurbishment. Even the menus were sticky and dirty.
          The starters came 25 minutes after ordering them, which isn't too bad to say it was busy but the prawn cocktails had no lemon slices or even any butter for the bread, which were the ends of a loaf, not nice.
          The main courses came and 2 seconds later a girl asked us if everything was alright, I hadn't had chance to find out but didn't really want to comment in any case. Basically the food looked as though it was all cooked seperately then reheated and put together, which provided very little taste in the dishes, I mean chicken cooked in onions and mushrooms with garlic would be tasty if it was all cooked together but they had definately put some deep fried mushrooms on top of a plain cooked chicken breast and then added some "hot dog" style onions on the top, even the baked potatoe was a soggy microwave reheat. Big yellow chips could be seen all around the restaurant. No black pepper on the table only white pepper all round, which is fine if you're having fried eggs.
          I'm not a snob but looking around I felt like one, most of the customers looked like market shoppers, car booter's and likely regulars, the sort of people you would find in caravan park amusement arcades. Not that there's anything wrong with markets, car boot sales or caravan parks.
          Non of us tried the wacky warehouse bit so we cant comment on that.
          Needless to say we won't be going again.
          You kind of get what you pay for and to me this is perfect for those meanies who dont like paying to eat out but dont mind if its not brilliant either. For children it's obviously fine as my daughter gave it the thumbs up, maybe she was high on coca cola at the time?

            I love this particular product the most out of all the Avene range. At first I thought it would be an uneccessary unessential treat/waste of money... (after all it's only water innit?) Wrong! it's got tiny moisturizing qualities in it, so say for example you need to moisturise but not too much one day because your combination skin has turned a little greasy, you just spray a burst over your face and neck and that will do usually or maybe on a night I would follow it with a tiny bit of moisturiser and hey presto that tiny bit of moisturiser stretches a long long way!
            Also good to set make up, after applying make up, just spray a quick burst over your make up and this gives you a nice healthy glow and helps settle the make up in so you look fresh faced rather than made up.
            Refreshing relief for hot sunkissed skin. Soothing relief for itchy irritated areas.
            Treat yourself to this one and you'll be hooked! It lasts forever, I have had the same bottle for about 6 months.

              This has to be sensitive skin care excellence! this is the first suncare product i have found not to bring me out in a million zits!! it's amazing stuff they had better carry on making it for as long as the sun keeps shining. I have to say that at 36 years old I am delighted to have finally found this product, since all the other sun care products I have tried, claiming they were for sensitve skin have brought me out in a spots, lumps and bumps but this product seems totally harmless, not one spot, it has looked after my skin a treat whilst I enjoyed my last holiday, I will definately be buying more of it! A little tube is rather expensive but worth every penny.

              I have tried many different skin care products, all claiming they were designed for sensitive skin and found them all to be irritating, within a few days or so, in one way or another.
              This product has really impressed me, it is so natural and inoffensive to the skin I doubt it could harm even the very most sensitive of skin.
              Reasonably priced, not cheap but not expensive either, this is the first moisturiser I have found to be pure good news for my face, I hope they never stop making it.

              • "bad for front passenger"

              Luigi was tired of being a waiter, so when he was offered an apprenticeship with Alfa Romeo he gladly took it. What Alfa didn’t know before Luigi started building our 2.0 TS Lusso, that Friday afternoon, was that Luigi had Dyslexia. Our car had already been shipped to England.

              The front electric windows were stuck, fortunately in the closed position and remained totally unmoveable for the first few months of it’s life, we had working windows for a few weeks then they packed in again. Fortunately it has aircon or I may have melted to death on one or two of the hot days we have had this year but unfortunately the air con also had a mind of its own along with an occasional strange smell too.

              The petrol cap is a menace for my man’s big hands, which could probably explain why there’s never any petrol left in it, that and the fact that you can literally watch the needle going down as you accelerate. Having been to Italy twice now I can confirm, that Italian men on the whole have lady-sized hands.

              The paintwork developed blemishes in some areas and the alloys caught an unexplained virus too, fortunately the garage we bought it from did a really good paint job, which totally surprised me since I would not recommend anyone to buy a car from them. Under Warranty we got 2 new alloy wheels which took 5 trips to the main dealers and several hours waiting around before they were finally both exchanged, and the same performance was had over getting a dead battery replaced. At less than 3 months old the car has also had to have a new computer. The main dealers told me it had been a danger to drive all the while I had been driving it, because it basically had a mind of it‘s own and the brakes could have failed at any time! this also meant that all the extra safety features would not have registered with the car. Which is comforting to know after having paid over £16,000 for it.

              Prior to that we had a non-starter, 5 breakdowns, VDC failure, ABS failure, spontaneous and rather annoying electrical faults which included a flashing tripometer... Can anybody explain? I can’t be bothered to read the hand book, it would take weeks. I am informed by the main dealer that apparently, if your foot slips off the brake pedal, like it sometimes does when you set off quickly, the car thinks it’s brakes have failed and the pedal needs re-setting in order to off-set the ABS warning, (bet you didn’t know that)

              The car has not yet done 4,000 miles, most of this mileage is in trips to the main dealers!

              Overall I believe that the car is way too intelligent for it’s own good and having a brain (computer) in a car is not a good idea after all, going back to the days of a simple gearbox, steering, and pedals sounds good to me after 7 months of this, yet despite all this, I don’t blame the car, I blame the garage we bought it from and the not so finger-on-the-pulse main dealers. It is a fabulous car and not just for its looks, it‘s a wicked-beast to drive but not so good for your front passenger. The large wheels, sharp handling and hard suspension mean you could easily break your Granny‘s neck. (not a suggestion)

              Ps. if you do break down and like me you were not informed of the 2 years free AA cover, don’t allow a man with big hands to push you out the way, as the body work pushes inwards very easily and then costs a lot to have it popped back out to perfection.

                • "lost time & money"

                Mount Garage in Halifax sold me my £15,000 ?brand new? 04 car yet when I got the log book I was down as the 2nd registered keeper? 3 months of problem after problem with the car AND Mount garage, imagine the shock I had when I learned that the car was actually registered 2 years ago in Spain! and that the full ?PEACE OF MIND? 2 year manufacturer?s warranty, actually only had 10 weeks left. To add injury to insult Mount garage are still denying the vehicle was pre-registered even though I have supplied West Yorkshire Trading Standards with the V5 documentation to prove the facts, it has their name on! They are also saying that the vehicle was not registered in Spain, this is a misunderstanding. The warranty has now run out, I have had this in writing from the manufacturer yet the garage say it has not, they are even pretending to have supplied me with a further warranty, of which I have no knowledge or paperwork of. It?s good we have West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service to advise us on such issues, don?t be afraid to use them, they are in the phone book. It was the car?s main dealer that recommended I tried WYTSS. Since buying the car earlier this year, it has broken down no less than 6 times. OK, so the garage don?t build these cars so, yes, this could happen to anyone, (I suppose) but they did cover up the details of the warranty and omit to inform me or supply me with any details of the free AA assistance I was supposed to have with the car until I went into a rage after being stranded with my 2 children, for the 4th time in 3 months. I learned of the AA cover by chance on one of the occasions that the car broke down, I was stuck/sat in the car, reminiscing about the trusty £3000 car I had owned before and how reliable it was, I decided to ring the garage to tell them I was going to have to return the car for a refund, (which apparently you are well within your rights to do, if the car has had so many faults within the firs
                t 3 months) the receptionist told me I was supposed to have a card or a pack about AA assistance, I didn?t have either and so she gave me the telephone number for the AA. Upon ringing the AA they told me it was the wrong number for the car and so I had to ring the garage for the right number, when they finally got me it, I rang the number only to be told they had no record of my car?s registration and so could not help me, the AA telephonist went on to ask me if I had a credit card to hand and offered me the opportunity of joining the AA? Aaaagggh! My sister ended up rescuing me with her trusty 10 year old run around and my next door neighbours jump leads. I might add, this 5 hour breakdown (mine and the car?s) was in the forecourt of a petrol station, the car was blocking the only petrol pump working and I was using my mobile phone (dangerous I know) with 2 kids (being quite civil) compared to my red rage, I couldn?t allow anyone to help move it out of the way because the last time it broke down, someone helped push it out of the way and their hands pushed the bodywork in, the ?new? car now has a big dent in the boot (estimated £200 to pop it back out) I couldn?t just leave it there because the area was not so good and the electric windows had also just packed in and they were fully open. ?Apparently the receptionist at Mount forgot to inform the car sales man of my exact description of him but coincidentally within a week I got a welcome pack from the AA saying thank you for your recent enquiry about joining the AA and thank you for your full joining fee etc and so on? Mount garage had done this to cover their tracks, the supposed AA cover was also due to run out very shortly. You could say this is simply just bad after care but it is more than that, they have mis-sold me a vehicle by saying it had all the things I wanted and lied about the actual facts. They have also invalidated the anti corrosion warranty by respraying parts of the
                car. Within these last 6 months, I have spent days and hours sat in the waiting area of the main dealer whilst they sort out problems with the car, the sales men at this garage say things like, ?you still here? you here again?? I have got better things to do and only wish I didn?t have to spend most of my days off work sat there, week in week out. The car has had to have a new computer fitted as the car had been ?a danger to drive? all the while I have been driving around in it, the brakes could have failed at any time, the main dealer refused to allow it go back out until roadworthy, which took over 1 week. In response to all of my complaints Mount garage said I had saved several thousand pounds on the car?s uk equivalent, which, 1. Is a further contradiction to the salesman?s sales patter ?they are all uk cars? and 2. Confirms they knew it was an import but 3. ?like it makes all of their lies and mis-leading bulls*it ok! What really annoys me further is the fact that it was only £2k cheaper not several thousand but it actually would have been cheaper for me to have bought the same car but genuinely BRAND NEW from the main dealer, with a genuine uk first registration, genuine 3 years AA cover and genuine 3 years peace of mind full warranty. All that has got to be worth more than £2k? MOUNT GARAGE ARE LIARS DON?T GIVE THEM YOUR HARD EARNED CASH OR YOU MAY BE SORRY and by the way they also claim to ?strive on the highest standards in customer care and attention!? DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THESE WOLVES IN ANORAKS
