Car Consumer Rights

Despite consumer rights law being design to increase car buyers rights allowing you to reject a faulty car and get a refund in the first 30 days or get the car repaired at the dealer’s expense, getting your money back on a second-hand car is a different matter.

Not Satisfactory Quality or Fit For Purpose

What happens when you’ve bought a faulty second-hand car and how do you enforce your legal rights under the Sale of Goods Act or Consumer Rights Act?

If the vehicle isn’t of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose, you may be entitled to reject the car and get a refund but knowing which legal service you need and finding a low-cost second-hand car solicitor can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Bought a Car With Outstanding Finance?

If you buy a second-hand car on finance from a car dealer or private car sale you haven’t bought anything but a legal problem. With the motor finance company still having legal title of the car they have the right to repossess it if the borrower doesn’t pay the instalments, leaving the innocent buyer without the car and their money. If you’ve bought a motor vehicle with outstanding finance on it, call our motor finance legal experts for a free initial consultation and car legal advice.

Cat C, Cat D Insurance Write Off

Dealing in salvage and damage repairable cars is perfectly legitimate, repairing and selling them without telling the customer the history isn’t and is contrary to consumer protection laws.

If you’ve bought a car that’s an insurance write off and weren’t told about it at the time by the garage or dealer you may be able to get your money back and get a refund. Unlike traditional motor industry solicitors we are low cost, fixed fee, direct access leading motoring lawyers, call 0333 700 7676 for a free initial consultation.

Mileage False or Been Clocked?

Condition, provenance and mileage are all key to used car values and ultimately car legal issues. Simply, the lower the mileage the more that car’s worth and as a result turning the clock back or clocking increases the motor traders profit margin. But of course, it’s against the law for trading law advice call 0333 700 7676.
