We bought the car from a dealer called XXXXX XXXXX Cars, in Penarth, Wales
We saw the car online on Autotrader then went to see it and paid for it via bank transfer.
Don't know, sorry.
We didn't buy it by distance - we went to see it and bought it from him at his garage.
How do you mean?
No, we didn't.
We got a 3 month warranty when we bought the car, and the dealer has offered to fix the problems under that warranty, but we would rather return the car and get a full refund.
Why is it bad news? I understood that under the Sale of Goods Act, we were entitled to a full refund?
We're not sure exactly what the faults are - but 3 different warning lights came on 2 days after we bought the car, indicating there are serious problems with the engine's management system.
We paid £3,250 for the car.
Thanks for that info.
If we accept his offer to try and repair the faults, but other faults develop after this - are we still entitled to return the car, under the SGA?
Or do we forfeit those rights by accepting the initial repair offer?
If we do reject the offer to repair the car, would our next step be to pursue this through the small claims court?
Would we have a strong case (i.e. be likely to win)?
