The car dealer has the responsibility of putting this right for you. You can tell them “Under the Sale of Goods Act 1979, this car should be of a satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described. My rights have been breached because the car you sold me is faulty. I would like you to put this right by giving me a refund/repairing the car at your cost.” If they it should be done under warranty then it's their job to arrange it not the manufacturer. They are not legally obliged to give you a courtesy car but if you incur expenses as a result of delays in repairing the car then you can ask them to reimburse you.

Good luck. Remember it's the sellers job to put things right not the manufacturer.
