Hi, I wonder if someone could help me please?
I bought a car 6 weeks ago now a Peugeot 307, 1.6 diesel, 55 plate. After having it for about a week I noticed a knocking noise that sounded like it was coming from the steering or around that area when I turned the car on and off and every so often when I went over bumps (and the car vibrated slightly) I then started to hear like a metally grinding noise... I later found out that the rattling was the rear engine mount that the rubber has wore away on and the metally noise is the wheel bearing that is going.
Also the electric windows are sticking when trying to put them back up. I didn't take the car back to the garage I bought it from as I wanted to see what was wrong with it before I did. When I found out what was wrong with it, I took it back to the garage I bought it from and the guy just basically fobbed me off and said it's not dangerous, it was MOT'd and serviced before you took it away, I'll fix it but you'll have to pay.
He took the car for a drive, with me and my boyfriend in the back and was doing about 70 mph around an industrial estate, going over any pot holes he could find and slamming on every so often (quite scary) and said don't worry I've done this every day for the past 25 years to test drive cars. That didn't exactly make me feel better! At one point he was driving like that and on the phone.
That was on Saturday, this morning (Tuesday) I got into my car, was half way to work and the engine light came on saying 'anti pollution fault' this is the last thing I need!!! I have looked at the the Sale of Goods Act and it stated that if anything goes wrong with a car if you have bought it within the last 6 months, the person you bought it from is responsible to fix this.
Someone help me please!!! I'm so fed up with things going wrong on this car already!!!
