Belgium
Mitsubishi ASX 4WD Aut.
February 26, 2024

Pros: We appreciated being given another car as the first one made a disturbing noise and had already 80.000 km... The second one was almost new.

Cons: The agent insisted on the fact we took many risks by refusing to take a complementary insurance although I told him we had taken an all risk insurance with you! The contract mentions : "Loss damage Waiver with an excess of 1000 USD" !+ "Theft Protection with an excess of 1000 USD" + " Third Party Liability with an excess of 600 USD" and "20% Responsibility to third party " All these contract terms appeared to us as threats and the attitude of the agent was really disturbing.
