Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
If this is a dealer sale then they are liable both under the warranty and under the Consumer Rights Act.
The fact that the manufacturers has gone under affects some remedies - for instance they couldn't offer an exchange - but not all.
Can I clarify anything for you?
They are liable if they offered the warranty.
But they are also liable under the CRA.
Then they are not liable
Are you seeking to enforce against the seller of the warranty?
if so, who is the underwriter of the warranty?
The dealer is not liable under the warranty if he is not the underwriter but he is liable under the Consumer rights act.
The warranty can be enforced to the extent of it's conditions. If it is underwritten by a company then almost certainly they are the liable person.
But you have rights against the CRA against the dealer in relation to the state of the vehicle.
They can't refuse to honour obligations under the CRA and the court will enforce that if necessary.
No problem and all the best.
