Customer Question

How do I stand ? I put a deposit via debit card on a car for £1,000. the purchase price was 6495. paper work to confirm price. But the dealer changed to 6995 while i was sitting in the office. I was confused, but did the transaction. The car failed the mot and needed a new window screen and all 4 tyres on the car were different makes. he put one new tyre on the car. I asked for my money back and he declined. He has now sold the car for 6995 and kept my 1,000. Can I get this back. I did try through the bank and they declined as I used chip and pin.
