Sold a car as described which claimant stated had an oil leak.

Didn't know it had one as nothing on any mots as advisory and was just mot'd 2 hours before delivery.

Claimant lied in court saying I jetwashed the oil off and was asked how much to repair, £13 gasket plus labour they claimed 250 to repair.

 

Judge asked why didn't you repair

they replied lost confidence and not rooadworthy so took a loan to buy another car.

 

because of the lie we lost on mis representation.

However once all was paid back to them they very quickly bought the car back at a fraction of what it was worth stating they will repair it and use it themselves. Something stinks here I think and sure some kind of fraud has occurred

Why did you sell it back to them?

 

If the oil leak was visible, drips on driveway etc and you were having to refill the oil fairly regularly, then it's probable it should have been mentioned.

 

How old and how many miles on it?

I am just wondering if I could take them to court for obtaining goods by deception

The fact they committed perjury in court is not evidence of a fraud having taken place and its upto the court to decide if they wish to persue.

The fact you willingly sold them it back is all too suspicious to me WHY?

Have to totally agree with above post. You have to forget it and move on as there is little you can do. Put it down to experience.
