Usually, when a new or second-hand car you bought develops a fault, you could get it repaired or replaced at no further cost to you by whoever sold it to you - or you could get your money back.
The Consumer Rights Act gives you the right to return the car or have it repaired. When you buy a new or second-hand car from a dealership, the Consumer Rights Act stipulates that you can expect it to:
be of satisfactory quality
meet any description given to you when you were buying it
be fit for the purpose
You can make a complaint about this to the dealership. Also, some dealerships and garages have signed up to a Trading Standards backed code of practice which means if your dispute isn't getting anywhere you can refer it to an impartial third party to resolve it - the Motor Ombudsman. You can find all of the information you need on the Motor Ombudsman's website.
