Thank you for the reply.
If the warranty was registered I could have the vehicle repaired locally. If the warranty had been issued I would have found out that one part was not covered and again had it repaired locally.
Because it was not I incurred costs and time spent getting a covered part repaired by the seller which was hugely inconvenient.
Sorry for delay,lunch break. Without the warranty I would have to pay for the repair. The seller wanted me to bring it to his garage because he had not initiated the warranty allowing me to have repairs locally.
The warranty booklet was provided but it was not discussed in detail what was covered. The vehicle was purchased on Feb 11th, the fault started towards the end of Feb and then when I called the seller they issued the warranty on March 8th for 12 months as it should have been from the date of purchase.
The warranty was included in the sale price so hidden in the overall value.
