Hi,

I'm new to the forum so I hope I can get some help and advice here.

 

My story is about used car sales and I'm sure my questions appear on many forums across the internet

but I was told this was the best forum for straight up honest and more importantly FACTUAL info and answers.

 

I traded in my 2007 estate car for a 2002 4x4 vehicle.

 

The trade took place at a regular dealership with all the paperwork you would expect, a totally honest genuine swap.

The 4x4 was priced up on the forecourt for £3000 and I was happy to let my estate car go for £3000 so all involved were happy.

 

I have had the car for 5 weeks and have had nothing but problems,

the first was a water leak, a nightmare but easy fix and as I hadn't spent £millions on the car I kind of expected minor issues.

 

The next problem was a fuel leak (perished seal on the top of the fuel tank) dumping fuel all over the floor when tank was filled,

again I am very reasonable and guessed that in the world of cheaper 2nd hand cars there would be issues.

 

BUT now a major component has gone and the 4x4 is broken!

 

The 4 wheel drive system has broken (I don't know all the technical terms).

 

My issue is this:

the paperwork I have reads SOLD AS STRAIGHT SWAP, NO WARRANTY.

Where do I stand legally ?????

 

I have owned the car for 5 weeks and according to the paperwork and current clocks I have covered 1055 miles.

 

Can I take the car back ?

 

Can I get my money back or demand the dealer covers the costs ??

 

Please help.

BTW what year and make of 4 x 4 is it? Some of them have inherent faults that show up after a few years. Either way SOGA is your best friend, but do not do any further repairs at this point.

Thanks for help so far !! more advise always welcome. The make and model is a Landrover Freelander 2002. I have been on to Citizens Advise and they seem to think I am in the RIGHT so im chuffed with that, I have spoken to "number 2" at the garage that I got the car from and he isnt interested BUT "number 1" is going to call me tomorrow so we will see !!! I think the SOGA is the way to go too because warranty or no warranty if you spend £3000 on a car I think you should get more than 1055 miles before it falls apart !!!

Thanks again for help, please any info that might help me is welcome
