Hi, I bought a car yesterday from a dealer off the internet and i got it home 60miles away with a few problems temp hit 100! Took car to a garage to get it looked at it had a major overheating problem with the heater matrix and rad. Cost me 40 quid for diagnostics! Rang dealer up they said they would fix problem but NOT refund me under any circumstances. I had to get car to them which recovery cost me 200 quid! they wont refund this to me. If i wanted to take this to trading standards do i have a leg to stand on legally once the car is fixed. When i rang thedealer he kept trying to fob me off saying it will be fine etc!

Hi welcome!


It all depends upon how the car was sold, if it was listed a running etc etc, then obviously it's not fit for purpose, and as such you should be able to claim any expense that you have also incurred.


One such item to look at would be the following.


"sale of goods act 1979" which one part of said is Fit for purpose AND last a reasonable length of Time.

Welcome to The Consumer Action Group.



I am just letting you know that as you haven't had any replies to your post yet, it might be better if you post your message again in an appropriate sub-forum. You will get lots of help there.


Also take some time to read around the forum and get used to the layout. It is a big forum and takes a lot of getting used to.



Once you start to find your way, you will soon realise that it is fairly easy to get round and to get the help you need.


It can be bit confusing at first.

Please be advised that my time will be limited for the next few weeks.Thanks for your understanding.
