Customer Question

Hi, I bought a car 2 days ago for £5800. The seller stated beforehand that the car had a misfire and was having repairs done. I said that I would call him once this was done. When I called him he stated that he had done this and had driven the car saying everything was fine. We took it to a garage to put it on a computer for any faults which was a friend of his (abit niave on my part) The result showed as fine. So I said ok and bought the car. As all new cars I drove around for a couple of hours. The next morning I set of for work and felt a misfire. This has continued into that day getting worse. The seller has said that he will book it in this coming Friday to get it sorted out. What grounds do I have to recover moneys paid. This was a private sale.

Do you know how much it’s going to cost to fix the car?
