Clocking is a very serious offence and should be reported to Trading Standards as soon as possible. You do not need to notify dealer that is is what you will be doing. From this point forward write to the dealer politely requesting the refund due to clocking and send by registered mail. Give them 10 working days to respond. Do not correspond any longer by phone as there will be no record.

hi thanks for the responses, i brought it cash £1800 mainly as the mileage for the age of car was so low, and it seemed okay as with all second hand cars you can never tell. we did record the telephone conversation with his acknowledgement so we have proof that he agreed a refund. he is being extremely rude and refusing to do anything about it i have contacted tradng standards and under the sale of goods act 1979 he is obliged to refund the money or like for like but he is having none of it they have told me to write to them so that is my next call. if he didnt know it was clocked is it still down to him to deal with this or the person he got it from? thanks

have you got the original add, which states the mileage and condition etc.

it would have been simple for him to check with vosa before advertising etc.

trading satandards will put pressure on, however suggest you get things moving by writing to dealer giving him 7 days to repond and return money paid or you will seek court action for recovery.

You don't have to let him know you are recording his calls.

How many changes of ownership in the last two years or in other words how many times has the car changed hands according to the V5 since the VOSA records show the mileage discrepancy before anyone starts jumping to conclussions?

So when you say"They've had the vehicle" is the V5 in the dealers name for all of that time?
