Bought a 55k plate used Mazda 5 from a dealer for 5.5k on September 14th 2016 (paid half on Credit Card)


Gear shift was sticky but I thought I just needed to get used to the new gear box and got worse recently so took it to a local independent who said that there was a fault with the gearbox and I should speak to the dealer.


So last week I emailed and said the car had a gearbox fault and wasn't fit for purpose and offered him an opportunity to fix it. They agreed to have a look and called me today to say that it need a new Syncro Mesh on the gearbox.


The dealer says that as its done 1300 miles since I purchased it he's not willing to pay the full cost of repair and is willing to make a contribution towards it. They reckon it will cost about £650. I haven't abused the car in any way and very disappointed with the dealers attitude.


I could move to reject the car under Consumer Rights (but its after 30 days) but if he refuses then I'm into a long and lengthy small claims battle.


Or should I push him harder? really not sure how to play it or what my rights really are in this scenario?


I would be really appreciative of any advice or opinions.
