    I had an SC appointment booked for 17th Sep to replace, what seems like, a loose wing mirror which makes a horrid racket when closing the drivers door. I was contacted today and told the closest SC (Milton Keynes) are starting a Ranger service and he could come see me at home in Northampton on 7th Sep instead. I was pleasantly surprised.
    I know the US have Rangers, is this a new thing for us in UK, anyone had any experience of this service?

    I haven’t myself but plenty of U.K. owners have had ranger visits. Door handle repairs are a common one.

    Certainly takes the pressure off the SC’s and obviously convenient too.

    A few years back there was a problem with seat belts being twisted, rangers, including in the UK, parked up at super charger locations and checked whoever turned up while charging. They were the good old days.

    12V battery changed a couple of months ago in the car park at work - perfect, painless.

    The 12v battery can go anytime from a car only days old to never failing. It’s better than it used to be and the car generally warns you to get it done,

    4 years. But I remember even before it was replaced, the error went away - which is not supposed to happen if the battery was really at fault. Had it changed anyway.

    New door mirror fitted, very happy with service provided by the ranger.
    Hopefully won’t have to call on them again any time soon, but nice to know they are there if needed.
