What is happening?!
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I could wait no longer.I went to my local Nissan dealer today. They fixed the key in 3 minutes and charged me £3. So, they did the job for less than you not telling me how to do it!I do not expect to pay, I am unhappy, and I will reverse any payment if you try to take it.
