I purchase a car, just under 6 months ago, within the first month they replaced the cambelt, cylinder head, headgasket, oil and clutch! I accepted the car with the repairs. However, now the turbo appears to have conked out! I have had this car for less than 6 months, done 8k miles and they had it for two months repair during this period!

 

Now its possible that i have to buy a new turbo as its not related to the original repair, where do i stand? This car surely was not in a road worthy condition!

Hi,

 

If you bought the car (used) from a dealer/trader (which it sounds like you did), any fault which develops within the first 6 months of ownership is assumed to be present at the point of sale according to the SOGA.

 

Have you contcted them about this latest fault? If so what was the response?

yes, its back at the dealer for diagnosis. So I'll wait and see, if they try and charge me for this repair, I will write to them and refuse to have the car back. ie ask for a refund.
