Engine Fault - Winchester Car Sales Ltd


Recommended Posts

Bought the car for my partner in April 2021.

Driving home i heard a tappet like sound and i assumed it was just that , tappets , so nothing to worry about.

after 3 months my parthner tells me the noise got worse, as i do not use the car due to having a van, i agree it has got worse and something must be wrong.

i visit a few garages and just ask them to listen. and they advise needs furthur inspection and not to drive it.

 

Called car dealer and returned with car as he wanted to inspect it at there garage.

There mechanic said something about oil and to do a complete fluch of system and change oil and filder and add addidtive . i did all this and then noise persists.

Dealer says it would be cheaper to get a new engine. but he will deal with it to get it done cheapo as possible.

left the car for 2 weeks and nothing had been done, he struggling to find an engine under 2k.

 

Basically in the end he has asked me to sort the issue out my self and refunded me £850 towards it.  Now an engine fitted i have sourced.

 

because of all the mssing about i agreed to fixing it myself but is it fair that i pay most of the money to get it fixed ?

 

Engine £1720

Fitting £600

Total £2320

the motor is less than 6mts in your possession, you should not be paying a penny under Consumer rights act!!

get reading a few threads in the forum you started this one

 

under consumer laws like the consumer rights act 2015 (CRA) - outside of 30days but under 6mts if you purchase a pup vehicle, it's your responsibility to pay for a report (of which you can reclaim the fees if the trader agrees its his bag) the retailer should be fixing the faults if its not fair wear and tear, which within 6mts is rare they win on that claim.

 

IMHO you should not have to pay - as i've said

he cannot just wash his hands no!!

I asked earlier if you could post up what it was that you agree to all it was that you signed when you accepted the money. You have done this but you simply given some kind of summary of it.

We need to see the actual writing please if you want the help and if you want the explanation.
