I have return my car due to the miss commutation between Clarus motor cars and the blue motor finance. Not all information are being passed on correct. I signed for the car on March the 10th 2020 I then didn’t have the car until the 13th of March 2020 this was due to the car needing to go the Clarus motor cars in Clevdon for a new service mot and new wheels and mot. When viewing the car in the St George garage I mentioned about the breaks being squeaky? This was told this would all be done before picking up the car.
I then collected the car on the Friday the 13th of March 2020 I had to make my way to the Clevdon branch for this. The day after which was the Saturday 14th March 2020 I noticed the heating did not work the breaks was still squeaky and more other things which I have pointed out was not correct and up to standards of having a car on finance which should of all been done.
I reported this on the 16th of March 2020 due to it being the weekend and was not sure it was opened and what time it shut. This was all in the 3 month warranty and within the 14 days of me being able to decline the car. I wanted to give them one chance to fix the car but this opportunity was cancelled to COVID-19 and the garage itself was shutting due to the government rules. When having this car I then started noticing more and more faults with the car the rust and electronics inside and outside wing-mirrors not working probably. This all should of been done when the car being passed over as none of this was pointed out over at the signing of the car.
Throughout lockdown I constantly was messaging the garage asking when they was reopening as I was eager to get this car fix as I have a 2 year old daughter and need the vehicle to be safe. We then was finally able to book in and took the car back on Monday the 15th of June 2020 when they reopened. I have gave them the chance to fix the car and apparently everything which was pointed out was fixed
. Water leak
. No electronics working inside (charging)
. Heating making a tapping sound
. Loose wing-mirror
Their reply was ‘Morning kelcee car is all done and ready to collect. Thanks [email protected]
’ this was from Lee who is the second in commence of the garage. I was given no courtesy car neither which I was told I would of had. When I spoke to them over the phone they told me they would fix my wing-mirror or if not if they needed to order a new one in when picking the car up this was the message from Lee about the mirror ‘it’s just slightly loose but secure to the car If you like i can price a mirror up but you would need to be paid for by yourself
I could help with a discounted labour rate for fitting if that helps ?’ This was within 3 months warranty of having the car and was reported 2 days after picking the car up, everything which what was wrong with the car should of have been fixed as they sold the car to me without showing any of this to me. I was given no other paper work when I picked up the car on the 17th of June.
Since this I have noticed everything falling apart and snapping off due to rust which is not my fault this should off all been picked up from the garage who get their cars ready for the customers. I notice the breaks were still squeaky the electronics don’t charge your phone it takes the charge away. The mirror was still not fixed the water leak was still there. I then reported all this a second time and their response was that they would no longer do anything for free due to the warranty running out in the COVID-19. This is when I spoke to the blue motor finance about redrawing the contract of this motor as it’s faulty? The garage have told blue motor they have never once had the car to fixed which I have in a email.
I have spoke to trading standards and they told me to look in to the consumers act 2015. Which I have and it states they have one chance to fix the car which I have given them and they have not correctly fixed this car. Lee had said wrong information was g
