  3. Hi I am just looking for some advice. We purchased a car In October 2018 2009 tiguan with 114K miles on, we purchased from a dealer (sold from a garage) but i think hes a sole trader. Before we purchased, the dealer said the engine management light came on and went into limp mode, they plugged in and was the glo plugs and the light was now off and all fixed. Satisfied we purchased the car via bacs. On they way home the car went into limp mode - i called the dealer and he suggested carry on driving until it did it again. November 18 we had an issue with the clutch, the dealer asked us to book into a garage over 20 miles away - but it was done free of charge and i was giving a car. The car then went into limp mode just before Christmas, we called up the dealer who told us to use to the same garage (not the one the car was sold from as he didnt trust the mechanics) and it was his responsibility to fix. Booked in January (due to them not being open over Christmas) and the same i was given a car whilst mine was in. The issue was the inlet manifold has blown and cracked. something that would of happened with there being an issue with it and being driven over time has made worse. The dealer offered half the bill - the bill was £700. We refused, saying if within with first six months of purchase the dealer should repair or replace. Again he refused and offered half the money, the car was in an independent garage, so one of us had to pay. But he also said in writing he wouldn't be responsible if it went into limp mode again or wouldn't give us a refund. Im under the impression the legally needs to. So we have paid the bill and ive written to ask him to pay in full, hes refused, saying if we take him to small claims to be putting a counter claim in for a solicitor etc. Where do you think we stand with a small claims? CAB have told me he should pay the bill as if there is a fault within the first 6 months its deemed it was there when the car was purchase. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks Emma
