      Tell them you need it recovered to a garage of their choice, you have no holiday left at work to take off, you are not parting with any cash so they must pay for any repairs directly... (Not you pay ad they refund you) cause it will take months

      In the first 6 months of purchase the responsibility is with them.............. but as I found out after purchasing my Astra, They didn't want to know me once I bought it. Tried refusing the car, but all I got was, Take us to court.

      But I then got all my problems sorted using a different dealer, but I lost time & money in the process.
      A brief nod to SOGA, worth threatening them with it.

      My letter, amend and send, at least threaten them, it might scare them to start the ball rolling to sort your issues.


      Your Address

      Tel: Your Number

      To whom it may Concern

      I am writing this letter to inform you that I wish to reject the car purchased from you in Part exchange on (Purchase date).

      I purchased this vehicle under the knowledge that it was, as stated in the sales of goods act 1979
      · of satisfactory quality;
      · fit for its purpose, including any particular purpose made known, and
      · as described.

      Within not even 1 hour of owning this car I encountered a major problem with the Clutch. Luckily I was driving alone on a motorway when I discovered this fault. Had I been travelling with my family, I fear the situation could have become a lot worse. This is not the kind of incident to fill me with confidence that the vehicle purchased is not going to encounter more faults over a short period of time.

      Upon returning the car to you, you agreed that the vehicle needed looking at, in my opinion this proves that the vehicle is defective in some way. The goods were not acceptable when sold.

      I have contacted the citizen’s advice bureaus who have confirmed that:
      “under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 if goods are faulty, not fit for their purpose or misdescribed, you have, for a short time after purchase, a right to reject them and get a refund of the purchase price. Therefore, if you have only had the car for a very short time, have only driven a few miles and you discover a major problem, you are probably entitled to reject it and get your money back plus the return of a ‘traded in’ car, if there was one, or its value if it has been disposed of.”

      I am rejecting this car and demanding a refund as well as the return of my traded in car. I feel that I am now very inconvenienced and also out of pocket, as after leaving the dealership today I filled up this vehicle with £20 of diesel.

      I consider a problem with the clutch to fall under the ‘Major Fault’ category, and as the fault occurred the same day the vehicle was purchased, I feel well within my rights to request the above.

      Kind Regards

      Your Name.

      Spoke to Barnsley, saying because its manu warrenty VX send the parts to them, so would have to send the parts back and then my local dealer order them?

      Gonna have to take it to a local dealer about the current issue and the new issues, show them the cracked manifold and hope they agree to order the parts aswell?

      **Update**

      Booked into Dudley VX next week, told them that the car has already been looked at and been told warranty for the manifold (heat shield left off so can show them) and ask them to look at the other issues.

      Still a nightmare but im hoping they will agree to do it, that way the car is only 5 miles away not 200

      You shouldn't have too many issues getting a courtesy car, I am a couple years younger than you and had one a few months ago with no problems whatsoever
