Hi I bought a car from a trader on tues of this week for 1500.00, and PX my chrysler for £300.00 in total I gave them 1195.00 on my debit cardthey told me that everything was good with the car before I left the lights in the dash board for the tail lights had come on, the dealer drove the car hom for me. I got insurrance for the car on wednesday and first time drove the car on Thursday, up to the shops and the engine level lights came on, I park the car and had my son look at this morning and we discovered that the oil level was below not even visible in the resover, we had to put oil in it. we put a quartengine oil and for the whole 9 miles journey the engine oil is still not going off, I as before I purchased the toyota previa if it have been service the sales person told me yes that they did a minny service and all the oils were up to level and that everything was ok. I took ack the car and ask for a refund based on I don't trust this car anymore and them, and my part exchanged, they put the toyota on the machine and the lights still have not switched off and now said that it might have a blockage. I requested a refund and my part exchange back, was was tolf that He will not give me back my PX as he have already taken a deposite on it, He have my PX on the ramp doing work to it. I told him that I would pay him for the repairs , but he told me that my car is now his. I left and rejected his toyota he requested the paper work for it, and said that if I dont give them to him, that he would charge me storage for the toyota being on his premises for storage.
