I am writing on behalf of a friend of mine. He has bought a car about 6 months ago, he is very happy with the drive.

 

He booked it in for a service and the dealer pointed out the right hand indicator was flashing red the car is due an mot next month so he booked it in for a replacement.

 

He recived a call from the dealer who sent him pictures of when they removed the bumper substantial damage was found, it seems the car had been in an accident and repairs were made and what was hidden by the bumper is in a pretty bad shape.

 

He spoke to the finance company who said it is nothing to do with them, I think it is and would be grateful if someone could confirm.

 

He has emailed the original dealer he bought the car from copying in the finance company and he is waiting to hear.

 

Who is actually responsible for this and what steps should he take?

 

Thanks

I think you'll be on shakey ground there. The dealer will point out 6 months have passed and anything could have happened in that time.caveat emptor.

Proving the seller was aware of damage prior to sale is the difficult task your friend faces.

High times dealers like this were named & shamed.

 

Maybe the Dealer didn't know about it either, no shame there.

 

Would you want they remove all the bumpers of the cars they sell to inspect for damage?
