I bought a car from a dealer 80 miles away from me last Thursday.


They told me it had a fault with the thermostat but it wouldn't stop me driving it back and If I wanted to buy it that day I could get it fixed myself. I did

got 20 miles down the road before having to have it towed the rest of the way.


The next day I took it and got the thermostat housing replaced which stopped the problem until yesterday.


Today I got told the head gasket has gone and it will cost £1500 to get it fixed.


Do I have right for a refund or repair costs covered?

I feel like I was misled at the seriousness of the issue and it's one problem after another!

I would also like to know if I had to get it towed back would it be at my cosy or theirs?

a fruked thermostat will have very likely cooked the engine several times, it doesn't just 'go,' it's a longer process than that., so , it will also at least have made the engine run hotter than it likes for a long period

a very common result of this is the head gasket goes.



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

So they sold me the car knowing it was basically frucked? Surely they shouldn't have let me drive off in that especially with a toddler with me 😳
