Thank you for your question . My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

In order to give you an answer tailored to your circumstances, I will just need to ask you some preliminary questions so that I can consider your position from all angles.

What is your question?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i purchased a mercedes car on 10/4/12. for£6495 from a car dealer. After 10 weeks the auto gearbox packed up. the dealer offered no recompence under the sale of goods act 1979. This then led me to tell the dealer over the telephone that i REJECT the vehicle and to give me back my money, this has been flatly refused. I had to have the car taken to his nominated garage. i was quoted £2000 for the repair. after the garage had carried out repairs, which i might add, did not remedy the fault, i paid the bill/ £1000 just to get the car out of the garage. i then took it to mercedes to have the job done properly i am suing the car dealer for the cost of mercedes.

i cannot because its called " priveledged information"

Sorry if I'm missing the point but whats the privilege? This is an email between your solicitor and the garage and they are not his clients.
