In order to reject a used car, do I take it back to the dealer, even if we are in dispute about how much he will refund me? I am planning on taking him to court for the full amount I paid, plus compensation for repair costs, as it broke down after one week and was not as described. If I take the car back, do I sign the car over to him while I let the court decide how much he should refund me? If I keep the car until the issue is resolved, do I have to insure it, even if I don't use it? The car tax is due to run out, can I claim back the cost of this, since I am not able to use the car due to the dispute? I have asked the dealer to collect it, but our negotiations have been going on for almost 3 months and he keeps changing his mind about what he is prepared to offer me. Meanwhile I have a car that I can't use.
Hi, im new to forums, i hope you can help. 6 days ago i bought a 1999 ford focus estate from a dealer for £870, mileage 160,000, my husband test drove it, it seemd fine, until the car warmed up then a couple of problems appeared, he noticed the clutch slipping slightly and the steering was juddering a little (on way home) he didnt use the car again until yesterday, to and from work, same problems didnt appear until car warmed up, but this time it was worse, he did some A road, motorway and about town driving and he said clutch was constantly slipping, i contacted dealer, i told him i would take to a local garage to get it checked, they confirmed our worst fears that the clutch could go at anytime and it would cost £532 to fix problem. i contacted dealer, he said he proberly get it done cheaper and that he expected us to pay, i said we couldnt afford to do that, i quoted the sale of goods act at him, then he offered to pay £100 towards the cost and that he wanted us to drive the car back 11 miles away and he would get his garage man to do it, well what if the clutch goes on the way back to him, surely his car is not fit for purpose, so isnt it down to him to pay for as we wouldnt have bought it if we realised it had a problem. we are not so worried about the juddering steering wheel but the clutch is too much. Please can you help!
