hi everyone,

 

I’ve joined this site to be in contact with you to let you know I am having the same problem with the same company,

 

stupidly my partner went and brought a car for £3675,

everything looks fine at first then when we got home we realise some things didn’t add up for example there was no personal details on the invoice

no name of the seller,

no milage logged,

The engine management light came on two days later

 

we took it to a garage where we were told there is a hole in the exhaust which lets emissions into the cab,

the DPF filter is not fitted correctly

X brackets aren’t aligned

and the rear tyres are so worn the cord thread is showing through,

 

The car has been deemed unroadworthy and wouldn’t pass an MOT

 

we got in contact with citizens advice and trading standards and sent a letter asking for full refund within 14 days under the consumer credit act of 2015,

 

we received a phone call telling us we could have a full refund and to take the car back tomorrow

 

I’ve been calling his numbers as a courtesy call to let him know I will be arriving at 10:30 but no answer on any of these numbers.

Provided your network allows 'native' conference calling : sorted

(so, O2 contract and 3 PAYG certainly do, giffgaff and virgin don't).

Hi Lucy

Sorry to hear of your experience.

 

Good move on contacting trading standards.

 

I'm going to do the same.

Probably next week.

Simply to let them know the details of my case for their records.

 

Perhaps you'd be kind enough to post the outcome when you get it.

Simply for the benefit of others.

I'll be doing the same.

 

Amongst other things.

I'm no expert, but I would've thought that tires worn down to the cord are extremely dangerous.

 

Can't believe he sold a car in that state.

Or rather, I can.

 

But I'm still staggered by the total lack of scruples.

 

Good luck getting the outcome you want.

Mike

Instead of having multiple threads on this business, would it not be much easier for users to contribute to and only have to look up, one thread????

 

Especially as this trader is using multiple identities!!!!

Hi Lucy-yate,

 

Just to let you know that I had the same problem with them and I ended up having to go through court to get my money back. He closed the business and set up again under Perf. Trade Ctr. I now understand that he's closed that one and reopened Northampton Autosports. Dodgy as....

 

Check out the threads for both names here to get some background info. If I can help in any way, please contact me.

 

Regards and good luck

what new thread?

 

back in june this thread was created for LY from posts on the mass thread as the more individual threads the more exposure the issue gets.

nothing has changed since then.

I think he is looking for Performance Trade Centre Northampton back to being called Northampton Autosports


My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

I have no legal qualifications.
