I bought a 2nd hand car last year. Paid £4200 for it. The dealer only gave it one month and 1000 miles warranty. After about 10 days and only 4 or 500 miles I noticed it had a coolant leak. I contacted the dealer, returned the car to him. He discovered the water pump was leaking. He contracted someone to fix it, they fitted new parts. Now ten months later and less than 5000 miles It developed the same water leak, and I have had to have another new water pump fitted again plus other parts that had failed during this time. Had I not had this done the car would have blown the engine up. The dealer is 175 miles from my home and the car would certainly not have made the journey back to him without causing major damage to the engine. Do you think I would be entitled to any compensation from him for this. I have not contacted the dealer again about this issue, but I have the bill for the repairs and all the old failed parts.
