  1. yes i was told i had a very good case, the evidence i had of the car being sold as virtually perfect was pretty solid. i would have taken it to court, i was livid at the fact he didnt act as he should and take the car back for repair and not usually one to let these things go, but with 3 kids i just need to be back on the road and this seemed the best i could expect out of the situation.
  2. yes unfortunately. im still fairly angry at the dealer. im usually one to take things right to the top if i have too, but having spoke to the consumer advice line, they recommended that i take the 600 as well. the dealer did actually say at one point that had he have known he would have auctioned it, suppose we will never know whether he was truely aware as he claimed he took it in part exchange 2 days before i purchased it. oddjobbob, quick question. so had i have taken him to court and won, would i have had to still rely on him paying up? i had some idea they deducted it from his

  4. Hi there everyone! This is my first post so apologies if its in the wrong place.

Do i accept his offer and put the rest
