My partner bought a car 2 months ago from a private party, a 2001 Seat Leon, petrol, 118000 miles on the clock for £1500 with full MOT and service, however since owning the car there has been numerous problems.
Brake pads not replaced
Hole in radiator, now needs replacing
Central locking is faulty, may need replacement
Oil light keeps coming on despite oil being in car and now cuts off the engine
Battery doesnt hold its charge
I know that there are restrictions when buying a car privately but I honestly believe that these are things that should have been picked up at the service or MOT. I have the guy's address from the registration documents... would we have any legal stance as far as this all stands, as the car is now sat outside literally a hazard to drive!
Any advice would be appreciated as we plan to contact the seller for mis-selling the car but am unsure of where we would stand.
Thanks in advance!
