Customer Question
I bought a brand...

I bought a brand new VW comforline line in Cairns 2015.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I took it for my first service and VW Cairns swapped my car for a basic Golf

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The police do not believe me. I took the VW to RACQ for a car history, And they cheated me as well. They reported no stolen status reported
