The company’s £60 claim payment is covered by insurance and the insurer has refused to offer further cover after December 31.
In a statement Car Parts Direct said: “We are not pleased with the insurer; they have given us virtually no notice. But I’m going to make sure our customers win before the guarantee ends. Our customers can buy one and get a second one at half price – and both units will be supplied complete with guarantee.”
Car Parts Direct made the decision due to an “unexpected rise in the number of mobile speed cameras and the fact that some motorists would forget to switch the device on and then pick up a speeding ticket”.
Under the suppliers guarantee the motorist can still claim the money for their speeding ticket. The company claims to have paid out over £16,000 to 277 motorists so far.
Customers who have bought the Quintezz XT7000 are still covered under the £60 cashback guarantee for 12 months after purchase and will continue to be paid out by the supplier.
