Hi Guys,

 

I have recently purchased a car and it turns out the car was not as described on the advert but the finance company are dealing with the garage regarding that.(under the consumer act 2015, false advertising, there asset is not worth as much as they would like now)

 

how ever as soon as we started complaining about the purchased car the dealer is now threating all sorts of legal against me.

 

this is a largish garage in the midlands that advertises on all the usual places including the used approved AA website which is where I ultimately purchased it from

 

the car I part exchanged had a 2 day old MOT issued from a main car dealership, nothing was said about the car on the day.

a few weeks later he sends me an email saying the car is costing him money to be sat in the corner of his yard and that it needs in excess of £500 work to bring it up to scratch and saleable

 

now I drove 70 miles with my two children in the car, no warning lights on dash, no strange noises etc.

 

where do I stand and what can I say to him to avoid a court case.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

and if he goes down the money claim route as he is threatening?

 

is there a bit of legislation etc I can point him towards to prevent legal proceedings.

 

yes my wife loves the car, but would love it more if it had all the options it was sold with

You're a private individual selling a car and he's supposed to be the expert.

Unless you exchanged a ferrari and then gave him a punto instead, you can just ignore his threats.

he never had any checks done on the car at the time

didn't drive it just looked at the mot history.

 

I have spoken with trading standards and they want to be kept informed of the developments.

all of these threats are in writing so that is stupid of him in the first place

 

 

Keep the emails or print them off for safe keeping

 

As for the new car,

you either reject it as you appear to be doing o

r you accept that you are being ripped off

and tell the garage you want some more abuse and are happy to pay for it.

 

 

As the latter seems unlikely to be true

you leave it all to the finance co to sort out,

which is exactly what the garage doesnt want.

 

 

No more emails, phone calls or anything that is not via the finance co.
