HiThank you for your question. I will try to help with this.
Where did you purchase the car?
it is a new car bought on the garage premises
Sorry about the duplicate. That should have gone on another post!!Was there any cooling off period offered? Or in the small print of the contract?
none offered, not sure about contract small print
OK.You have an automatic cooling off period if you purchase an item by distance unless some exceptions apply. If you do a deal on the trader's premises though you are locked in immediately.If there are cooling off rights in the contract though, you can rely on those.Failing that, there is the Sale of Goods Act but you would have to show that a fault exists to do so. If you give me more information I can tell you whether that would apply.I am happy to discuss the above but please remember to click on accept. I will continue to help thereafter for free.
