Not even a suggestion that it was going to start.
Lights, radio, windows all worked, which suggested it wasn't the battery. Starter motor? Probably.
I have insurance with AXA which gives me breakdown recovery, so I called the number. Gave the details, they said the recovery people would call within 10 minutes.
Guess what? They did!
They'd had a few call-outs and were busy but they'd be there as soon as possible.
One hour later the driver called my mobile - he was close by and wanted precise details of where I was
I'd called the dealer, Galadari Mazda, to tell them the car was on the way. They said they were fully booked today but they'd inspect it tomorrow.
At 3pm they called: "Mr Seabee, your car needs a new battery. Give me the go-ahead and it'll be ready for you at 4pm."
I called for a taxi, which turned up in ten minutes, got to Galadari at 4pm and there was my car, fixed, ready and waiting.
Not much of a story, but I complain when service isn't up to scratch so it's only fair that I acknowledge this good service delivery.
