Thank you for the reply
That is what I thought, its just the advert was through ebay & the description through the advert was that the vehicle drove fine without any issues.
But looking at the service history the seller had transmission oil replaced 2 days before viewing the vehicle, independent advice was the seller would have known the issue with transmission as there is no need or service schedule to change the transmission oil unless there is driveability issues with the vehicle, when asked the question the seller gave the reason that his wife was going to use the vehicle over Christmas & the new year & wanted the vehicle right for her!
I did contact ebay over the matter but the seller was very clever & knows what he is doing as when I viewed the vehicle arranged via email through ebay & left a deposit on the day of the viewing the seller then removed the vehicle from the auction without recording any transaction, they have informed me to contact the police but I just think I would be wasting the police time as I just believe seller very clever & I was gullible
All I have is the advert from ebay which states the vehicle drives in perfect condition & the service book that proves he had the transmission oil changed, the only proof I would have is if I had a written statement from him that the transmission is faulty which in his right mind he would never do but he knows that by changing transmission oil would buy him/vehicle some time
