If we can’t resolve it within the above timescale or need to look into your complaint in more detail the below timescales will be followed. 

By day 5

We’ll acknowledge your complaint within five working days of your complaint being received.

By day 28 (Four Weeks)

If we’ve been unable to provide a full response to your complaint, we’ll write to you again to confirm our investigations remain on-going.

By day 56 (Eight Weeks)

If we’re not able to provide you with our final response at this point, we’ll write to you to confirm this and provide details on how to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

Using a claims management company or law firm

Claims management companies and law firms can act as intermediaries between customers and companies, meaning they contact Oodle about your complaint on your behalf. They often charge a fee for this service. We wanted to you let you know that when you contact us directly, we assess your complaint in exactly the same way as we assess complaints sent in by a claims management company or law firm. The only difference is you won't have to pay a fee if you do receive compensation.

Complaints Data

Every 6 months both the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Ombudsman publish complaints data about individual financial businesses. You can find a summary of our latest complaints data here: https://www.oodlecarfinance.com/use-of-complaint-data
