I think there is a bit of confusion between ethics/morals and the law. I'm not saying I wouldn't feel hard done by in the same situation, but we are not talking about a brand-new car with a full manufacturer's warranty, it is after all, a second-hand car, which has inevitably incurred wear and tear over its 39 months. The warranty is doing its job, but I agree, some form of 'goodwill gesture', free service, extension of warranty could be given. I just think that its so difficult to totally reject a brand-new car (without incurring any costs), that it is almost certainly an uphill battle to carry out the same task on an older car bought second-hand.
P.S. Lawyers argue over points of law primarily, using precedent and legislation to back up their own case (weaken the other parties). Its not necessarily right vs wrong - oh that it were so simple, we could all be lawyers.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
