Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays but rest assured that I will respond within 24 hours.
For the avoidance of doubt did you purchase the van online or at the dealers garage?
The Consumers Rights Act states that where goods sold such as vehicles are not of satisfactory quality then the buyer can exercise a number of remedies.
Remedies such as refund, repairs at no costs, replacement or price reduction can be exercised by the consumer.
In view of the law and on the assumption the fault was not brought to your attention prior to purchase it appears the consumer rights act has been breached and thus you can exercise one of the remedies mentioned. Therefore I suggest you write to the dealer and remind them of the law and why this has been breached. Inform them of the remedy you want to proceed on. Assuming this matter is not resolved this is one to consider court action. With regards ***** ***** action I suggest you return to JA and we can provide some advice on this process.
I hope I have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
