The dealer must help pay for the van repairs, because there are implied terms as to fitness. So if he won't help pay, you can take a claim to the Motor Vehicle Disputes Tribunal, which is a special Tribunal set up for Disputes like this. You don't need a lawyer and they can order him to pay for the repairs. The link for making a claim is http://www.justice.govt.nz/tribunals/motor-vehicle-dealer-disputes
