Are you private sellers?
You are not commercial seller then.
The Sale of Goods Act doesn't apply and anyway they mean the consumer rights act which also doesn't apply
They could drop down on the law of misrepresentation but then they have to show there was a misrepresentation rather than just a defective vehicle.
Can I clarify anything for you?
If this were a commercial sale that would not preclude liability.
No. It is of no consequence.
The issue is that you were not a commercial seller.
No problem and all the best.
