  1. After buying a car from a rogue dealer trading as a limited company I started small claims action against them. I have just received a letter from the court giving a court date and asking for all the paperwork etc to be sent to the other party and to the court. This has been going on a while I thought before I did anything I would check up on them and low and behold there is DS01 voluntary strike of lodged by them at the end of September. None of their web sites are active and I cannot find if another company has started up at the same address. My question is i
  2. I agree that it is reasonable to expect small faults on a second hand car and to that end before I purchased it I set aside £500 contingency to cover these. However having only had the car a day it was obvious that it had a number of faults that where unreasonable especially given the wording of the advert and the description given to me by the salesman over the phone and remember I didn't see or test the car before delivery. These being engine light on and serious rust issues. I emailed the dealer and made it very clear that I would only keep the car if these two faults wher
  3. I have now received the paperwork from the court regarding the other parties defence. I have filled in the N180 form agreeing to mediation although I think this is pointless. I have requested a venue change to a court close to me and I have sent this recorded to the court and to the other party. I shall keep the thread updated as thing progress

  5. I have just checked MCOL and the dealer filed his defense today. Am I allowed to post it here? Also what happens now? there does not seem to be any options on the MCOL page for me to submit evidence or take things to the next stage, whatever that is. Thanks
  6. This morning I have recieved a copy of the Acknowledgment of service. Interestingly as well as saying he wishes to defend all of the claim the defendant is also contesting jurisdiction. Is there any reason to contest jurisdiction or is it just a delaying tactic? Thanks
  7. According to money claim online the dealer has submitted an acknowledgement of service yesterday. I'm now a little confused. This give them upto 28 days to submit a defense. However I have not been asked for any specific details or evidence yet so how can they submit a defense? The online form for raising a claim only allowed for a small amount of text explaining my claim. The text I submitted was very close to the limit and is as follows. At the beginning of May I purchased Mercedes A Class A200 for £3000 from Safi Cars LTD in Leicester. I purchased the car unseen as I l
  8. I received a recorded letter today from the dealer. The first contact I have had with them since they refused to help with clutch issue (or any issues for that matter) on the 18th June and told me their legal department would be in contact within 14 days. only five days late then. In it they state that the salesman and description where accurate and I was fully aware of the cars condition before I bought it. I believe this to be rubbish but thats for the judge to decide. In it they state that I was told the correct mileage by the salesman and that the advert was a typo. This is an ou
  9. I have raised a small claim on moneyclaim.gov.uk. They have 14 days to answer so watch this space. If anyone has any suggestions or comments about how to fight my case it would be a help. I am aware that it is a limited company I am going after. Are there any precautions or steps I should take in this regard? Thanks
  10. If I had known I could do a charge back on a credit card in the beginning I would have. I only found out recently that was an option. The problem I have is I have spent over £2k on repairs. If I did a charge back now I'd only get the original cost of the car (£3K) and I'd have to give the car back. My only option is to go after the dealer for the cost of the repairs I believe he is liable for which amounts to £1840. The day after receiving the car I asked for a return/refund or gave them the option that if they pay for the doors and glow plugs and I would keep it. When they pai
  11. Hi All This is a long post so bear with me. I've done a lot of research and I think I know what I'm doing but I would really like to hear your thoughts, comments and suggestions on my tail so far. At this point in time small claims is unavoidable so any suggestions where my claim is weak and what I could do to address it would be greatly appreciated. I have laid out the story so far in a time line below. Many Thanks Jonathan At the beginning of May I purchased a Mercedes A Class A200 for £3000 including delivery. I stupidly bought it unseen from a dealer over 150 miles away using my
