Hi - am after advise from you guys!
We bought a car in November 2006 from Arnold Clark (in the North West) - just a 2004 Focus Zetec, or so we thought.......
Just come to get it taxed now, and been told that it should have an MOT. We questioned this with the DVLA as we thougth it wasn't due it's MOT till June 2007 as it was first registered in June 2004!
After lots of discussions with the DVLA we have found that the car was actually used and registered in Jersey and was actually manufactured in 2001!!!!!!!!!! It came to the UK in 2004 and registered then!!!!!!!!
Firstly, we are going to argue that they have sold us a faslely advertised Car at an incorrect price. Secondly, and more importantly, we don't know how Arnold Clark could have got it Taxed in the first place when we bought it as again they would of needed an MOT Certificate, and we think that they could have frauduelently (sp.) taxed the car!!!!!
Any one know the best place to start / advice????
Fortunately the Chicks Dad is a Traffic Cop so we have his ear, but where do we stand legally??
I want to go there at the weekend, drop the car off and get my money back!!!!
