  1. I purchased a vehicle from this company via

    ebay on 25/3/2013.

    I traveled to london to collect the vehicle,

    shortly after returning home and driving the

    car a few times, i noticed that the clutch

    appeared to be slipping.

    I notified .......... via

    letter on the 8/4/13 and asked them to

    rectify the issue under the sale of goods

    act, advising them that by law they have to

    rectify my issues with the vehicle.

    I received a reply advising that the car was

    sold without warranty and they wouldn't be

    offering a repair or refund for the vehicle.

    I sent a further letter to the company, dated

    21/4/13 further advising them of their

    responsibilities under law. I have not

    received a reply.

    The claimant claims interest under section 69

    of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of

    8% a year from 24/03/2013 to 07/05/2013 on

    £646.00 and also interest at the same rate

    up to the date of judgment or earlier payment

    at a daily rate of £0.14.



    Thats what ive put in MCOL...

    Is that what i need or something else?


  2. Utter rubbish


    Distant selling regs come into play


    Sold as seen seen nothing unless any faults were pointed out at time of purchase


    Those conditions you signed are unfair terms


    Now that i have finished my essay, i will draft a response if you like, wait for any response then WW 111


    Please confirm it was an eBay registered business seller and how did you pay


    registered seller, paid in cash.



    Will get next letter sent out.


  3. I have today recieved a reply:


    You may remember you actually purchased this vehicle on ebay. For information purposes if that vehicle had been retailed it would have been priced at £4999, a significant amount more than what you paid.


    As described on our eBay shop and indeed the sales invoice states quite clearly that "all items are sold as seen with mechanical defects with no warranty implied or given". Your sales invoice also says quite clearly "sold as seen". I think you would agree that this quite evidently makes it clear that we are not been held responsible for any faults with the car. You purchased the car and have signed the buyers certificate confirming your acceptance of the conditions of sale.



    Sooo. Whats next?

  4. Thankyou for that.

    How does this look?


    Dear Sir/Madam,


    RE: Faulty goods and the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended)


    On 24/03/13 I bought a Ford Mondeo ST220 from you for £2650 which has a fault.


    The clutch is slipping considerably, I believe the issue to be a faulty clutch/pressure plate.


    The Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended) states that when a consumer buys goods from a trader they must be: as described; of a satisfactory quality; and fit for any purpose made known at the time of sale to the seller.


    This legislation also states that the seller, not the manufacturer, is legally obliged to sort out a problem if the goods do not meet these requirements.


    The Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended) says: if goods break within the first six months after purchase then there is a presumption the goods were faulty when sold.


    This fault with the car was not as described and I wish to claim for a repair of the clutch under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended.


    Having spoken to Ford, they advised the cost of repair was £960, however I have found a more favourable quote of £380.


    Please respond to my complaint within 7 days from receipt of this letter.

  5. Was the car purchased in the last 7 working days

    No, Was purchased on 24/03/13 - What difference does this make?

    Obvious question; If the clutch was slipping on the journey home, why did you not turn around and take it straight back? Also, £950 to replace a clutch?? What is it, a Ferrari or something???


    The garage would have been closed for starters, and also the fact it was advertised as sold as seen..... And no its a ford, mondeo ST.

    Thats just frauds pricing i guess, but apparently the subframe/gearbox has to be dropped down so its a labour intensive job...



    Whats my next step with this then? Are there any template letters available?

  6. Hi All

    I traveled down to london to pick up a car, got it for a really good price.

    Sold by a dealer on ebay as "Sold as seen" ( i understand this has no legal bearing)

    Now on my journey on the way home i noticed the clutch slipping, this seems to be getting slightly worse!

    I had a quote from ford for £950+

    And a reasonable on from a local garage for £250 labour (if i supply parts)


    Now, my question is, how do i go about contacting the dealer to try and recover some of these costs?

    There was mention on the advert of 2 defects with the car (easily solved ones), however no mention of this!


    Is there a template letter i can send to them maybe?


  7. Whilst working in darlington i recieved a FPN for littering

    Whilst i did drop a cigarette on the floor, i believe i was on private property whilst doing it.

    I have 2 days to appeal it, otherwise it goes up by £25

    Now looking at the letter, they have spelt my surname incorrectly.

    Does this give me more grounds to appeal?



  8. Hi All,

    Wondering if you can help me.

    I recently purchased an outdoor table at Asda,

    After spending £125 on this outdoor table, it wouldn't fit in my car in the box, so the asda staff kindly took it out of the box and put it in my car.

    Getting rid of the box, and apparently the instructions with it too.


    A few weeks after setting the table up outside, it rained for the first time, and the "outdoor" table started to rust on top where the metal mesh is, im not sure why as its all painted and sealed, but it has!


    After seeing this, i emailed asda via their website and advised of the above.

    They suggested a couple of things such as, i should have kept the box ( despite the fact that it wouldn't fit in my car!)

    And that after keeping the box, i should store it suitably, in the cardboard box (which would involve taking the table and chairs down (took at least 2 hours to put it up properly) and then put it back up when its stopped raining.


    Their main defense was that on the box it has a warning stating that it should be suitably covered/protected. I argued that an outdoor table shouldn't go rusty when left outdoors

    I advised them that i didn't have the box and therefore could not see the warning on this box.

    Again they advised that there was nothing else they could do, due to this warning.

    I have emailed at least 4 times, asking to speak to a manager, and still get the same response.


    So im here, asking for what the next steps i can take are?

    Is there some ombudsman for the supermarkets that i can compain to?

    Also i paid for this on a visa debit card, i understand that offers some protection with chargebacks for faulty goods?

    Anyone help me
