Hi all, firstly thank you for letting me join the group 

I am in need of some help regarding an independent car dealer that I bought a car off approximately 3 weeks ago. At this time I was trading in my used car for which he offered 3500. He had a quick look around the car but did not drive it at the time. The car was due a service which I made him aware off but other that this I had used the car for daily journeys with no issues at all.

yesterday I received a call from him stating that the car is overheating and he only found this out when he brought the car to the mechanic for a service as there was no water in the tank. He did advise that the mechanic put water in the tank but when he was driving it home he smelt burning and that’s when he noted the overheating issue, he did say that driving to the mechanic there was no smell or issue and this was only after he received the car back. 
 

he states the mechanics is only up the street from him and that the car has done very little miles as he was getting it ready to sell but now cannot as it will cost approx £500 - 600 to fix.

I am not sure what he wants me to do as he said he cannot use the car now and that he will be taking a loss on the car, as I traded the car in working with no issues that I was aware off and it has been 3 weeks now,  do I have to take the car back ? Or help with the costs ? 
 

any help would be greatly appreciated 

 

thanks

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...

As long as you were not trading in the car as part of your business then you are not bound by the provisions of the consumer rights act.

As long as you did not mislead him then you have no other liabilities in law

He is a Trader and should be aware and should have made his inspection adequate enough to discover any faults

Thanks for the replies, I did genuinely trade this car in good faith and was not aware that there were any issues as it was driven daily for approx 40 miles with no problems and also driven to him twice with no problems noted.

other than needing a service which I told him about I had no prior knowledge of anything else not being mechanically minded

On our last call he did say he had lost faith in the car and did not want to repair it, I do feel bad that a car I have traded in has caused someone else issues and would be willing to help him resolve the issues in a reasonable manner, but again do not want landed with a large bill and also don’t want the car as I can not be sure he or his mechanic caused the issue  after 3 weeks 

He is due to call me again on Monday to discuss options and I would like to have as much information as possible to refute any arguments he offers as he may state I mislead him and I only have my word to say I did not as was not aware of anything wrong 

It has now marred the new car purchase due to the worry about this issue

really appreciate all your time and the advice you have all given

He had the car for 3 weeks and now claims it's faulty? What do you think he'd say to you if it was the other way round?

Just tell him he has no comeback on you as you part exchanged a car with no known faults to the best of your knowledge.

Don't have your new car serviced there.
