  1. Good work! The dealer knows you have a case, now it’s just a case of sorting out the details The CRA specifically allows deductions for cars: “No deduction may be made if the final right to reject is exercised in the first 6 months (see subsection (11)), unless— (a) The goods consist of a motor vehicle“ That said, £100 plus valeting fee seems excessive.

If on the off-chance it'd been recently MOT'd, or the dealer had it washed and valeted, the porkies really start mounting up.
