So, in short, they say the Lexus was not in the state described?
So is that an accurate summary?
he is alleging it was not as described?
Ok. What specifically does he say is wrong with it?
Or that is not as described?
Ok. And how had you described the vehicle to him?
Well, that is emotive of him but it is quite unlikely that it is immaculate. Cars are not generally.
The reality is that is likely to amount to a misrepresentation. It might well be that you didn't intend it to be but they only have to show that you said something untrue or misleading at the time of contracting.
He seems to suggest that he has found serious mechanical failure. Whether that is true or not is another matter.
If he has though then he would be entitled to the diminution value between the price agreed and the price it is worth.
If you are prepared to fight the matter in court then refuse to comply and invite him to sue.
If not then return the vehicle.
It is a matter for your appetite for risk really.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, I understand. It was an unpleasant tone. One would think a dealer would not get so emotive.
Normally a compromise is possible.
