Have you recently bought it?

If so you have a legal right to have it put right for free. The garage selling it must do it or you can get it fixed and send them the bill.

I believe a vehicle has to be sold for scrap for this law to not apply.
Second-hand cars don't have to be free of faults. A faulty gearbox is a very different thing from rusty brake pads.
Currently in spacecadet's garage:
Laguna 2 1.6 51 plate 5-speed
