I bought a 16 month old Corsa with 3900 miles on the clock on Tuesday.
Within 4 hours of owning it the car began veering to the left.
I took it back to the garage the next morning, and
they said that they had resolved the issue.
I took it for a drive and the car then veered to the right.
I took it back and said it wasn't fixed and I didn't want to keep the car as it wasn't safe to drive (I had only owned it for 17 hours at this point).
They said it HAD been fixed and the technician had taken it for a test drive.
I handed the keys back and said I no longer wanted the car.
They had a senior technician take it for a test drive and
when he came back he checked it up on the ramps and said that the problem wasn't with the tracking as the lasers were 100% accurate,
but they would need to take the vehicle in to examine it.
Again I said I didn't want to keep the car and they said I would need to inform the sales department.
I handed both keys back to the sales team and said I WOULD NOT keep the car.
They didn't have any courtesy cars, but managed to arrange a demo to be loaned to me.
I was there for 5 hours that morning.
Today I had a phonecall from them to say they had fixed the problem with the tracking!
(I was told that the problem wasn't the tracking and they weren't sure what was causing it)
I was also told to hand back the demo vehicle.
I have spoken to citizen advice who advised to hand in a letter rejecting the vehicle,
which I did this morning (funny how suddenly the car was "fixed" a few hours later).
They have since informed me to hand back the courtesy car as it is not a legal obligation to provide me with one.
I am doing this in the morning.
The manager has said he is rejecting my rejection letter, refusing to refund the cost of the car (8k),
and also refusing to give me back my 2 cars that I traded in by saying he
"doesn't know where they are and that they may be in the garage getting repaired or somewhere"
My problem is that I have no car,
8k in debt and
I work in the community and
my father is in hospital 100 miles away
so I desperately need a vehicle.
WHAT DO I DO??? COURT ACTION??
