My car warranty ran out in September, I now need £800 of work, are they not responsible for so long after?

If the car has been serviced to the Manufacturer's spec, serviced at the correct date, at the dealers ( Not necessary at the dealers providing the correct parts / oils /filters are used) I would contact the car's UK Head Office. what work is required?

If the warranty has run out, how can you complain?

A cylinder and the clutch
Clutch " No" What Cylinder? Brake, Engine Cylinders? If engine, I would get it verified by the Garage that serviced the car, Dealer or whatever, send the details to the HQ, photocopy the details, what is the mileage?
you won't get a clutch, even under warranty and I cannot see how you can claim anything if the warranty has expired.
It's the same as any warranty - you can't claim after it's expired. Same thing with washing machines, I am convinced they have a 13-month shelf life :-(
Boxy, a few years back I had a ford Escort, the car was well out of warranty, one of the rear shockers failed that meant 2 had to be replaced ( as they do replace these units in pairs) the car had done about 30000, I contacted Ford UK H.Q. with the a VAT Reg Garage receipt explained that these units should have lasted longer that 30000, I also sent them the Shockers ID Number for their reference, they paid the cost of the repair, I'm sure if Borobird contacted the makers of the car and explained the problem, they would look into the cause of the Cylinder failure & compensate.
You can try claiming under the 1979 Sale of goods act (as amended) but you do not say what age the vehicle is. what you paid for it, and from whom you bought the vehicle, so it is difficult to advise. You may be interested in Crowther v Shannon Motor Co 1975.
