Hi people just thought I would ask what you think of this. on 10/10/2011 I bought a clio 2001 from a guy in auto trader advert said he was a trader car was not sold as seen or anything anyway I went to se car and he took me around block in it seamed ok.I had a car that i was going to scrap but it had mot and tax so he said I wuld take your car off you he wasn't interested in even looking at the car.

 

I paid him cash and give my car in he said ill deliver it anyway next day I went to use car and warning light started to flash :|

people were saying take it back but silly me didn't.Even eight people said so I have lots of witnesses too anyway have tried everything but looks like its the head gasket Looks like this guy knew all a long what he sold me and he even sold mica or tried to

for over 500 pounds even though it should have been scrapped.

 

I dont think that there is anything that I can do now but just thought I would ask anyway I know I have done a daft thing

 

Thanks for your time in reading this guys/gals

At this stage you either need go and see him and follow up with a letter/email or just do it in writing.

You must make contact and see what he will offer, before you can take any sort of legal action; dont just accept it for the sake of a few emails etc.

Auto trader will help as well, they will have registered address.

Also speak to trading standards, they may have come accross him before.

Many thanks raydetinu

 

I have spoken to consumer direct they were good also i have phoned the person but he did not answer, a guy answered and said the person was on holiday and he said he was his partner. I asked if the person was a trader he said he wasn't but when I bought the car and swapped mine in px. he put a traders address on the log book this was someone else's house not his. been on the internet and seen more cars for sale at his house and even he has a tow truck and a car with traders plates in the window. consumer direct said I have to write letter asking for refund, repair, or exchange

and he has 14 days to do this so its next step I have spent loads on car doing tests etc and paid for parts too I will give auto trader a call se what they say Thanks for your help

Hi all

 

just an update seller ignored second letter I sent. so I sent one normal post but got proof. I got a call saying trader was on holiday lol (he was in the background) anyway I have got this sent to trading standards and spoke to them today. They said that he can call himself a trader and does not have to be registered. I was shocked by this he said that I would have to take him to county court and they would help me fill in form. I am shocked how people can get away with it. this person owns a car transporter and sells lots of cars and also on ebay I feel a bit let down how people can get away with this any advice what you people think.Trading standards are going to check my letters to make sure they will stand in court

 

cheers people Thanks for reading

Did the ccj get issued? If so, how is it going? I am in exactly the same position, I paid £2k for a car which is rubbish! Our 'trader' had until 4 Jan to reply to court but they have received nothing back from him so Ive sent off the request for judgement 2 days ago. I was wondering is the deadline set, is it too late for him to send in a late reply? We also wonder what happens to the car, Im sick of looking at the heap of junk that has been sitting on my driveway sine August!

Hi lisa Thanks for your reply it should have a date on your form when the person has to reply by.

Unfortunaly this trader did reply but lots of lies I now have to fill my alocation form and get a court date and hope I win the person is selling cars on ebay but states he is not a trader it should be intresting. I think the best thing to do is phone the court that is dealing with the claim up as they will know the correct information They are helpful to me so they should be able to advice I hope you get it sorted

Yes,he should have replied by 4th Jan, but I checked on 11th and he had not, and I checkedagain today and still nothing. Did your 'trader' respond within the time limit given, or was his reply late?

Hello I really in need of a bit of advice please.

 

To cut the long story short I took a guy to small claims court as he would not take the car back that I bought. I have won the case and he did not even turn up so there was me and the judge.

 

The issue is that when i bought the car the person told me and my partner that his name was (peter) but when the case come to light the guy put in his defence that his name was not peter its was (Joe MADE UP NAME) I sent a letter to the court advertising this and I am sure when in the hearing that I told the judge that this guy said his name was (peter)

 

I have phoned the court this morning and asked they said that I did not say anything to the judge and the claim would have to be set aside.

 

But I said I put it in the letter and the judge should have read my letter. The person even said that we were both there lol I said no I was there and he was not, It sounds like they are blaming me I need some advice I am not sure if to wait and se if he pays or try and get the name changed Lets hope there is not another hearing can you people give any advice on this also when do I ad interest on this I don't pay fees.

 

Thanks for any advice you can give I hope this is in the right section

You can ask for the name to be amended and the summons/judgment reserved until corrected.

Forms now finished just waiting for the judge to do his/her bit. judge did say that the defendant can pick up the car by arrangement only but I don't think I would release the car only if he pays and signs a letter that i have he has not paid as of yet so waiting for name change the enforce the order
