Have you made an error?. It was the vehicle I was trading in that they claim to be faulty. The vehicle I purchased I have yet to use as it is stored and has only done 300 miles.
I was aware that vehicle did occasionally go into limp home mode but always found this to be battery fault. The brake fault light on dash came with the vehicle five years ago and despite having two new electronic handbrakes fitted, both by Land Rover establishments, the light stayed on. Vehicle had also had new brake discs and a recent new engine.I had pointed out the light problem at initial conversation.
In addition the dealer asked me to sign the V5 registration document at their premises and have retained it. I also signed a registration retention form which they retained. I have not received the V5 for the new vehicle after six weeks and a check with the DVLA yeaterday showed the vehicle still owned and currently taxed by the dealer.
I have not received payment of 6k for the sale of my vehicle. I have had to make deposit on the new vehicle from my savings account and need to replenish this. In terms of settlement I would go to 5k to close the matter. Does my signing of the registration form on their premises not constitute an order/contract ?
Yes, I feel that as they offered me 6k as a trade in over the phone at the time of initial order, they test drove the vehicle upon delivery identifying minor fault and should therefore stand any losses.
Thank you for your answer but you have not stated as to whether a contract is in place and what are the principles on which I am able to make a claim. Also under what facts could they provide a defence. I would be grateful if you could explain the detail a little more.
