I went to a car dealership rather than try a private seller because I thought I could trust them to sel me a car without any hidden problems, do I have any course of action I could take to at least get some contribution to my costs for the new engine. It's not good for their reputation for them to have sold a car that has lasted a mere 6 weeks, could I threaten to post details on facebook for instance?
Shortly after buying the car I did notice that the heaters weren't working (the weather was cold at the time). I had to go back for them to MOT the car (it was due to expire very soon) and I mentioned this to them tehy offered to fix this but it didn't seem that urgent so wasn't too bothered, but now I feel like it may be linked to what caused the problem, since heat was obviously not being removed from the engine well enough. Not being a mechanic I didn't realise what the lack of heat from the heaters meant, but I think they should have realised.
Do I have a case if I can prove they did not check the car properly for faults before selling it?
Just thought I'd say thanks for the advice. I didn't leave a tip sorry (I had to used all my money and loan some for a new engine), but I have shared the website on my facebook status.
