This is covered by the sale of goods legislation as the car did not conform to the description of it made by the seller, i.e., the heated mirrors did not work. You are entitled to insist that they repair the car so that it conforms with the contract of sale. If they refuse to do so then you are entitled to the remedies contained in section 14 and you could claim damages being the cost of having the car repaired elsewhere. Happy to discuss further.
