When is a GTO not a GTO?

September 14, 2007

I had an email from the Privilege motor insurance people a week or two ago, addresed to “GTO owner Rob”.

Fair enough, I thought. I’ll spend a few minutes online getting a quote. The small print said they were underwritten by Direct Line, with whom the car was insured for its first 2 years in the UK.

I filled in the form and got a quote about £200 less than I was currently paying to Ensign. It said to phone them if the car had any modifications to confirm the final premium. So I did.

Almost the first thing the young man who took the call asked was whether the car was an import. I told him it was and he replied that they don’t insure imports!!!

1.  Their underwriters insure imports.

2.  All Mitsubishi GTOs are imports. The UK made ones are called the 3000GT.

So why does their stupid website encourage me to waste my time? Aaarrgghhh !!
