Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Was the car purchased on finance?
Yes with Mercedes finance
I have notified Mercedes finance of my concerns and have spoken to customer services for their advice but have not received a clear answer .
Has the repair failed and have you asked for a refund or exchange?
The car has been returned 6 times and the problem is still the same . Yes I have asked for an exchange and the return of my money
what response have you received?
The dealer has forwarded a record of all costs and dates it has been returned to the dealer and works carried out , I believe that Mercedes are now waiting to see if the latest modification works . The car is with the dealer now .
Hi your rights under the Sale of Goods Act is with the retailer, i..e the dealer rather than the manufacturer so any claim would be against the dealership. The right to reject a vehicle is limited in the sense that the vehicle should be rejected as soon as a the fault becomes apparent. The fact that repairs have been accepted may affect your ability to reject the car under the Act. I would however suggest that you write to the dealer to say that you have lost faith that the car is repairable and to state that as the car has not been roadworthy since the purchase date you would like to reject the vehicle and if they do not agree to this you will consider your options to bring a claim under the Act. You need also to discuss the issue with the Mercedes 'Finance as they may support your view on this. Hopefully if you put something in writing they will expediate matters. You can also contact Trading Standards to explain the situation, they will give you a case number ***** will be good to use in correspondence.
If they do not agree to refunding your money you will need to consider your options as the fact that you have had the car for a period of time may cause you an issue, this is particualrly the case if you have any mileage on the clock for the period.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If ihave answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
