I traded in a car over a month ago bought a car off

Customer Question

I traded in a car over a month ago for and bought a car off the dealer. When I traded in my car it did not have an mot the dealer was aware of this and I agreed to pay to put the car through the mot. Also the car was in need of a service the trade in value was marked down by the service value. After I had traded the car in the dealer contacted me to tell me the supercharger did not work and need replacing. He is asling me to pay at 50% towards this, if not he wants to take the car back that I bought on finance and give me my original car back. He claims he can do that because the car was not as advertised, I had no idea the supercharger did not work I had driven it for 5 years. My question is can the dealer take back the car and is he right in claiming the car was not as advertised. Thanks
