Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Do you mean the garage bill for the inspection you mentioned, where it was with them for a couple of hours, etc
So did they pay for the repairs in full?
To be honest that would depend on the finance agreement as you have basically entered into a contractual and credit relationship with the finance company and your obligations would be contained in there. So the first thing you need to do is to check whether the agreement states anything about that.
Your argument would be that the reasons for the repairs were because the car was not of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose, hence why this is a cost which should be borne by the seller, not you. Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, if a car does not meet these requirements, it is for the seller to ensure that it is repaired or replaced.
As such even if they try and charge you for this, I would dispute it under the consumer legislation above as it clearly did not meet these requirements.
