Purchased a second hand Citreon C3 from an Authorised Car Dealer on March 25th it had just been MOT'd and had three months guarantee on it.Within two weeks it broke down and needed a new alternator which they fixed.Then the door handle fell off which they fixed.

Two months after purchase it broke down again and they fitted a new coil while it was being fixed it sustained some minor dents and went back in a couple of days later.

Now today on the way home the warning panel was beeping (no idea) and as we drove into our drive the engine fan went into over-drive and the car started vibrating.

We have tried to start it and its seems OK (at the moment) so we are taking the car back to the garage where we bought and they are going to look at it.

What I am really worried about is if there are any faults after the guarantee runs out in a couple of weeks.I am really tempted to push for a refund.

Where do we stand ?

Any suggestions please

as long as the dealer is fixing these minor faults you should be ok, even after the warranty period; you are covered under soga.

you dont say how old the car is and whether it is on finance?

Obviously the older it is it will be susceptable to wear and tear faults that the dealer is not going to be responsible for ever, but for a reasonable time.
