Hi think I can now say im a member of the been ripped of by Barber Car Sales Group. Ive got a baby due in December and decided to free up some cash and change my mint Subaru Impreza for an older model so I could get the babys room kitted out. Saw an advert on Ebay for a impreza that was older but still looked nice and the advert said part ex and swaps considered it was Barber Car Sales. I went down had a look at the car and did the deal with 'Dave' Mr Virdi for my car and cash he said he didnt have the cash there but gave me a deposit to confirm the deal. All ok so far I got a phone call from 'Dave' a week later saying he had my cash and we needed to do the deal that day which I thought was strange but went with it. Drove to the Barber Cars sales site signed the paperwork collected the cash and drove away in my new car. Now comes the bad bit I recieved a letter in the post from the DVLA less than a week later saying thakyou for your application for the V5C but we are unable to issue it until the car has had its VIC test to prove it is fit to go back on the road after its accident repair and to confirm that the repair has been done to a high standard. I carried out an HPI check on the car which 'Dave' says he does on every car to find out the car is a cat C recorded car in 2011 and has not been inspected to confirm the repair is good enough for the car to even be on the road let alone sold by a garage at full retail. So I contacted 'Dave' and he admited he was not aware of the car being recorded I asked for my money back and now this has been over 3 weeks and I think Barber Car Sales Coventry, Longford Road have fallen of the face of the earth because they dont answer the phone to me or my texts and Im left with a dangerous car that shouldnt be on the road what a mistake I made going to these people wish I had googled there name first cant believe they are still in business can anyone advise me as to what I should do next cheers

I suggest you start a new thread of your own in the Vehicle retailers section here: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/forumdisplay.php?57-Vehicle-retailers-and-manufacturers

 

 

outline as many details as possible and I'm sure someone will be able to give you some decent advice...... although I will say from reading other peoples experiences with this guy/garage I think you are in for a long hard battle to get anything back from them. You could also consider getting a VIC check done and having the car inspected for safety.

Have you physically been able to get back to the dealer and have you reported it to Trading Standards via CAB? I suggest you send a letter by recorded mail asking for all you money back and your previous car otherwise you will need to take civil action. Give them 10 working days.

hi thanks for your response I have nt been physically back to the garage because i was concerned about how a scoundral like this might react to me but I have reported it to Trading Standards and they are very interested in the case and have asked for me to foward all the infomation i have onto them. CAB advised me to send him a letter as you have recorded delivery cant believe this company are still trading.

I had no issues with a gentleman called Dave. I got perfect service and he was very open to me about the comments about him on here. I always judge people on a one to one basis and on this occasion I found him and his staff very friendly and helpful. It's easy to make bad comments but it's only fair to place a good comment. I have no issues passing this dealer onto other people and I will use them again no problem. Steve

I would go and get the car inspected at a garage.it might be cat c but it could get that if the parts where 2 expensive and someone has used some 2nd hand parts to fix it so it might still be safe so might not be a total loss.

Zumbanikki. It doesn't matter what category it is written off at. The seller is legally obliged to informthe buyer it is a write off.

 

We are finding in the motor trade that many traders are paying higher than average prices to buy their stock. But what they aren't doing is the remedial work to bring it up to retail standard.

When the customer complains about their car they refuse their legal obligations. Even if you then get a court order you will battle hard to see any money. The garage name and ownership changes on a regular basis.

Get your money back, you have the right to as the user above has stated, he falsely advertised that the car was hpi clear and sold a write off with out telling the seller.

You need to keep an eye not only on the subject, but the date the thread was opened. This one is almost 12 months old and like in a lot of threads, the original poster never came back to let anyone know how he got on.

It is experience within the trade conniff. My stock comes from local garage trade ins and auction sales. In both cases I and other traders are told or witness the sale at auction. See the vehicle go for considerably more than its CAP price. You then see it advertised at some garages. You can see the margin in these vehicles and that they have not been prepaired to retail standard. The midlands is a particularly bad area for this practice.

 

My report to admin was the removal of wording in my post which completely changed the tone of my post. This was unfair to me and to the users that will find the information of help.

I had no issues with a guy supposedly called Dave either yet I have learnt today that he is apparently the owner and will appear all teary eyed in order to get you off the pitch... they're all bad

Oh I will be, as well as any other way I can make sure they don't do it to anyone else.

 

They couldn't lie straight in bed!

 

I don't think 'dave' even knows who he really is anymore!
