I recently bought a second hand car from a private seller.
I agreed with the seller that I bought the car "sold as seen".
I therefore fully accept that any problems with the car are my responsibility.
However I later discovered that the MOT certificate had been doctored.
Advisories had been erased.
The erased advisory stated smoking exhaust/engine worn.
The car has just failed it's MOT on exhaust emissions.
I contacted VOSA and Trading Standards regarding being given a doctored MOT certificate by the seller.
They both said that they cannot help me.
