I bought a 2004 Ford Fiesta with an apparent mileage of 36K

Customer Question

I bought a 2004 Ford Fiesta with an apparent mileage of 36K in Ocober.I asked the garage to do a service before purchase for my daughter but was told it was not necessary as it came with a 1 month warranty, had full service history,low mileage and a good MOT.After the drive of 14 miles home the engine light was on there was reduced power and it was steaming. It was returned the following day to the garage and was deemed fit 2 days later when it was collected. The next day it was losing power and misfiring so was returned again and spent another 3 days before release for a second time. No paperwork accompanied the vehicle in connection with these repairs.On Day 27 of the warranty November 21st the engine misfired again,cut out twice, on the second time the brakes lost servo and the car could not avoid a collision with £1100 damage to the Fiesta and damage to the car in front.No-one was hurt.Insurance was Third Party Fire and Theft so we risk considerable loses. An indepenedent test confirmed mis-firing.I have asked for a full refund from the garage. The garage says that the brakes did not fail & misfiring is not a problem.He refuses to pay anything back.He says we are blaming him for my daughter's accident.Subsequently the MOT certificate confirmed a mileage in excess of 72K miles. Any advice please? Mrs XXXXXXXX Thank you
