Thanks for your reply.
How much did you pay for the car?
Was it in a used condition when you bought it?
You have a claim for breach of contract and breach of the sale and supply of goods and services legislation against the seller for failing to provide you with a car that was of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.
Your remedy is a full refund on the purpose price, plus interest and legal costs.
You should reject the car by sending it back to the seller immediately, together with full and detailed written reasons for rejecting it and demanding a refund on the purchase price. The letter should be compliant with the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 Pre-Action Protocol.
If you do not get a satisfactory response from the seller, you should issue civil county court proceedings against them for damages and legal costs.
I will be delighted to act for you as your solicitor and may pass you my details for my main virtual law firm and give you further details of my fees.
I hope this resolves your enquiry. Please revert to me if you have any further questions and I will be delighted to assist.
Otherwise, I shall be grateful if you will please mark your enquiry as “Closed” and give me a “Positive” rating in order to conclude this matter.
There are plenty of useful precedent letters of claim online if you search Google.
Do not give a "blow-by-blow" account of the dispute. Just go into the bare allegations of the faults with the vehicle and why the dealer is in breach of contract. It is not wise to volunteer too much information too early as this will give the other party the chance to massage their evidence in response.
The Just Answer agreement does not permit me to divulge my practising details and costs until you accept a Premium Service Phone Call.
Do you still need expert assistance in this matter?
