Yes that is correct. The dealer test drove the car and I made them aware of the two issues which was the brake pads and the light.
When we actually did the hand over they did not check the car again. We merely did the paperwork and exchanged keys. They are saying that another bulb went and also the sat nag did not work. These were both issues i was unaware of. I feel that they have been very underhand.
I am happy with the process of pursuing them for the money via the court the only thing I am worried about is in one of there emails they put the following:
At this stage you are within your right to issue a claim of which we will defend and put our case forward. However if this is the case we will also be making a counter claim for additional costs and loss of time spent dealing with this matter.
They said the above to me.
Ok, am I well within my rights to claim it back then because they are trying to use bully tactics which is most unsettling.
I have long emails between both them and me but on some of them they have put "without prejudice" at the top. Does this mean I cannot use it as evidence?
No there is no negotiations of settlement all the emails are is them saying they are taking the money. It is never discussed as a settlement.
Ok that is good to know.
Thanks for your help.
