Re: Mileage clocked ARGGGGHHH!!
Buyer Beware just means that the buyer shouldn't take anything for granted, not that he'll get bent over & his trousers pulled down.
It applies to any misrepresentation or fitness for purpose whether a private or retail sale. Was the car advertised? If so, was the mileage mentioned? Even if the advert doesn't say guaranteed or warranted mileage, if the incorrect figure is mentioned, that's misrepresenting the car - especially if it is also priced as a car with the lower mileage.
Because the seller's Father is a solicitor, doesn't make him automatically 'correct', as for every court action, there is both a winner, and a loser.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
