  1. Almost forgot, huge thanks to Rebel11 and everyone else who offered advice on this thread!
  2. Glad to hear the seller will get pursued now, thought they'd got away with it to be honest. I suspect the CC provider will carry a little more weight than I did
  3. Just thought I'd give everyone an update on here in case it helps anyone in the future. After a lot of work from and and a futile attempt to get the garage to refund me and return the car I instigated a section 75 claim against my credit card provider as, under the consumer credit act they are equally liable for the purchase of faulty goods. After an independent inspection which threw up all kinds of other issues (cracked CAT, perished bushes etc), my credit card provider have decided that it would be more cost effective to take the car off us and refund us the cost of the car, plus all c
  4. I don't have anything in writing unfortunately, I didn't forsee any issues and thought I was being proactive getting the belt done. I've drafted a letter requesting a refund now, will see how it plays out but I feel less hopeful than I did this morning! Thanks so much for the advice and keep it coming
  5. I've just read through that, very useful stuff. However, the crux of my issue, as in the ecu fault relating to the cambelt change was not present at the time of sale although some of the other faults will have been.

  8. Thanks, I've prepped the letter and will send it off today. Depending on their response would I be best fringe to claim back through visa first or through moneyclaim? I suspect the case may be too complicated for visa to touch.
  9. Thanks, I will read over that today. I paid over mine and my girlfriends credit card, plus some on a debit card.
  10. Brief Overview: I purchased a car around 5 weeks ago from a used dealer for around £1900 on the proviso they arranged for it to be serviced as advertised (it hadn't been). Post purchase we arranged for the cambelt to be done at the same time for an extra £230. After getting the car back various bits of trim had been put back shoddily and the car was seriously lacking power compared to before. Turns out the dealer users an 'ex-ford specialist' mechanic moonlighting from his normal job and not an actual garage. A week later it goes back to them to be fixed as the timing is clea
  11. Where is the merged thread? This is very relevant to my current situation
