Hi there, i recently sold my 2008 Vespa scooter as was hardly being used - only 350km in the 4 years I've owned it.
I'm not mechanically minded at all, so every year I've taken for an MOT I've had all the work done that I've been told has been required - over £1000 of receipts during this time.
The MOT had expired so I dropped it to a garage. They took it to a MOT centre 16 Aug and it failed on sticking brakes and faulty indicator. which the garage fixed, they then took it back to the MOT centre and it passed with no advisories on 22 Aug.
I sold the scooter privately on 19 September after the buyer came to view.
On 21 September I received a text saying the head gasket was blown and water pump failed which would cost £4-600 to fix.
I explained that it had just had a new MOT, been to a garage and an MOT centre and nothing had been mentioned to me.
I offered £100 as a goodwill gesture around 3 weeks ago.
Yesterday I received another text saying it has been with a local dealership, they do not know what the issue is but need to strip down the engine to find the fault and have suggested a new engine or sell for scrap. Buyer says he has done less than 1 mile since purchase and wants a refund?
Thanks in advance
