Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
It is a timing chain engine.
If the vehicle doesn't start now, don't make any further attempts to start it.
It needs to be examined more thoroughly for what has happened.
The RACV mechanic is probably correct, since he has been with you to observe it.
If you bought it from a dealer, I would contact them for repair.
That's great news.
Hopefully they will fix it for you for free, or at least some form of compensation.
Hope it works out for you.
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
Glad the selling dealer is looking after you.
