Hello everyone,

I bought a car on Saturday 19/10 from a dealer for £1100.

He gave me a month guarantee on engine and gear box.

 

I picked it up yesterday because I asked him to have it cleaned and valetted which he agreed and paid for.

When I took the car to my mechanic yesterday he was horrified and said that the car is worth nothing,

I would need to spend hundreds or thousands to get it fixed:

brakes,

the whole exhaust pipe etc etc.

 

I called the dealer and wanted to return it,

I only just picked it up 2 hours before

 

. He said he doesn't do returns and if I return it he will deduct £400!

That's nearly half of what I paid!

 

I have been searching whether there is some trading law that would prevent him from doing that.

 

Does anyone know about consumer rights when you buy a car from a dealer?


Thanks in advance

as long as it passed the MOT they are not dangerous faults so no real reason to return under your short term right to reject.

brakes/exhaust might be on their last legs so your mechanic thinks they will need replacing before next MOT???

 

what the etc etc??

 

will the dealer not fix the issues?
