I recently purchased a used car from a garage on finance its 5 years old,
when I collected the car I was told it had 3 months warranty (ive owned it for 6 weeks now)
I have just discovered that the timing belt should be changed every 5 years (the 5 years came up about a month after I purchased it)
Im pretty sure it hasnt on this car and when I did my research I thought it was every 6 years,
I also needed the car quickly otherwise I would of ensured it was done prior to me picking it up.
Im not in a position to pay to have this done as yet as ive recently split with my wife and money is a bit tight,
where do I stand if it breaks within the 3 month period.
I would just also like to say that I wasnt given a warranty policy or anything as I know most of these dont cover these things anyway so my warranty is with the original garage.
Any advice greatly appreciated, if I have to pay to get it done myself then thats fair enough I was just after some advice.
I have emailed the garage and surprise surprise they havent responded, and all I asked them was how much they would charge to get it replaced,
I wasnt asking them to do it free of charge, so Im a bit like if thats how they are then maybe they know it should of been changed prior to purchase.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
