Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
When was the purchase please?
Did she not test drive the vehicle beforehand?
Are you able to respond?
The contract was signed by my wife on 24th June 2014, I believe. She received the new vehicle on 30th June 2014 and complained straight away about the lack of power. She did test drive a similar car (we believede it to be the same 1.2L) but is adamant that this was far more powerful than the one she has now. Does the outstanding £1 payment mean that the dealer has not fully fulfilled his part of the agreement and is therefore not the legal owner of the exchanged vehicle or just that they owe my wife £1?
This could be breach of contract and technically she could sue for loss and damage, the £1
She is the legal owner if she has taken possession etc
She can get the vehicle examined to see if it is working ok
However case law shows us that unless a car is literally falling apart or wont actually run, you can't reject it
But she can get it examined or indeed a second opinion of the vehicle
But sadly its not breach of contract in that she can return the car because of the £1
So just to be clear they just owe £1, even though they have not fully satisfied their part of the agreement.
Yes. Its breach of contract
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
But get a second opinion or the vehicle inspected
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
So, she now has no claim at all on the exchanged vehicle, only the outstanding £1
Sadly that is correct.
Even if they had not paid the £4001 there still would not be a claim, only for the money
OK thanks for your advice. Bye
