  1. Its the retailers responsibility to resolve and clarify.
  2. The above won’t change the fact there will still be a mileage discrepancy held against the car, thus devaluing it. The slate needs to be completely clarified and cleaned, that responsibility lies with the seller.
  3. The retailer you purchased it from had a responsibility to tell you if there was a discrepancy. When HPI checks are performed they can check the mileage aswell, you will be able to find out from HPI whether they checked the mileage and chose NOT to tell you. A mileage discrepancy will always put a cloud over the genuineness of car and reduced its value considerably. I would contact the retailer (be nice) and explain your situation, put it in writing aswell. Tell them you want them to clarify the mileage. You want written clarification from the owner at the time that the mileage is correct... And you want the discrepancy removed from the database. If they cannot oblige the above you have every right to reject the car for being fundamentally NOT as described.
  4. Lawtreader, I think you seariously need to reconsider your actions. You have been offered a full repair, I think you are being completely unreasonable, its a minor issue with and easy repair, the court will not look kindly on you. Rememeber the retailer has rights as well as you do. You cannot just stick your head in the sand and demand a refund until all channels have been exhausted. You could lose at court and have to pay their costs, which could be considerable... I suggest you reconsider and work with them and give them the opportunity to repair, if they don't fix it correctly then sue them, work with them not against them.
  5. This is shamefully bad advice, you cannot buy a product from a retailer and then demand more back because you think it’s worth more. Where is the balanced sensible advice here ?
  6. I had a Audi A4 1.9 TDI which I filled with petrol, it went about 30 miles before it lit up like a chistmas tree and died, it was taken to the main stealer and they promptly emptied my wallet of £800...... You are lucky you have insurance If the injector had been leaking you will get carbon build up around it.
  7. They havent ignored, they've said take it to the main dealer who has diagnosed the fault is with the modification, the said modifyer has asked for it to be retured for a full repair. OP is refusing and you are saying take them to court !! Bankfodder how can you justify such misguided very bad advise ?
  8. I suggest you DON'T ignore Hillsides offer to take it back and fix. What do you think a judge will look for when he reads the case, if it isnt already dismissed ? Seller agreed to fix, buyer refused to return...... I repeat start being reasonable, thats what judges look for.... They get fed up with completely unreasonable cases being put infront of them... Its black and white to them. Who's been or being unreasonable........
  9. I agree, I think bankfodder has given you a missguided extreme view. Start being reasonable and work with Hillside to get the car fixed. I think it was right they asked you to take it back to fiat to make sure it wasnt a manufacturer fault, they say it isnt (as far as they know) youve bought a modified vehicle, work with Hillside to repair. Don't threaten them, be reasonable and work with them. Get it fixed and re-start your relationship with Hillstart. As soon as you STOP threatening them they'll bend overf to help you....................................
  10. It is the responsibility of the consumer to show due diligence when purchasing a used vehicle. To have the attitude that the retailer has taken advantage is unfair.
  11. Surfnut. Utter Tosh. You ignore and continue to ignore the sellers rights. Your extreme interpretations are misguided. A responsible dealer will freshly MOT and repair as neccessary including advisories. They will service and have the car independently inspected including a PDI which covers all aspects of the car. This is signed and agreed by the buyer that the car is in fully working order at the point of sale. The responsibility is for the dealer to ensure the car was as of a satisfactory condition at the point of sale and for the buyer to agree. From that point onwards it is up to the buyer to take responsibility for subsequent repairs and maintanence of THEIR vehicle. The consumer should be fully aware that taking ownership for maintanence and general repairs is their responsibilty. The CRA is designed to protect retailers equally as well buyers, it's not one sided. The TONE and a lot of the guidance on here is extremely misguided, with views and interpretations which specifically chose to ignore the sellers rights. If you are going to give advice do so with balance and fairness.......

  13. Imo you have to let Hillside have the opportunity to repair, refusing them their right is unreasonable. You cannot make up your own rules. A judge would probably dismiss your case or it would be set a side prior to going to court for exactly the above reason. You are taking this far too personally and not looking at it practically, any good vehicle Electrican would be able to fix / disable within a couple of hours. Stop escalating the problem and resolve it, get it fixed and move on.
  14. The purchasers buys a van and the invoice is in his “business” name. The CRA is not relevant, his rights will be covered by the SOGA. Surely you experts should know this basic stuff.
