Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I am reviewing your question and will reply again in a moment.
Was it new or used?
How old was it?
What state are in?
I will pass you on
You have come through to Australian law
Hi there I am a UK lawyer and can assist with this. When exactly did you buy the car?
Thank you so I presume you simply want to know how to get your money back?
ok so how much are you actually owed at present?
Where are you and the seller based?
Ok thanks. You cannot force them to repair the car. In the end, the law will just look to place you in the position you were in before this occurred. This means you can get a refund for any money paid or any direct expenses incurred because of this. I know this leaves you without the car you had worked hard to find, but the courts would not consider this and all they would look at is the financial side of things. Therefore, if you cannot get the car repaired you would need to settle for a refund of any fees paid and costs incurred. You would only have to worry about your next steps legally if they refuse to settle up and you have to pursue them for the money owed. That is when the courts become an option, although I would hope that it does not come to that.
Does this answer your query?
Sadly not, it is a given that any legal situation will be stressful to a degree but you don't get extra compensation for that
No, unfortunately you cannot claim for this even if caused by them
You have the right to request that the car is repaired but cannot force them to do so - if they refuse you can then still reject it for a refund
