Re: To Give up & Sell or Not
Sorry to hear of your woes. Sounds like the dealer who sold you the car could be a chancer - in my opinion. I think you should remind the dealer that an NCT (MOT) test is not a guaratee of quality or reliability and only relates to the intrinsic safety of the vehicle at the time of test. It is also strange that the brakes seem to have deteriorated so soon after such a test. Although it can be argued the clutch and brakes are deemed to be fair wear and tear. It is also possible the diff could last for quite some time.
Have you checked to see if you have any consumer rights in this situation as it would seem the car is not fit for purpose.
I would think in this case maybe you have been mislead and even feel quite hard done by. Selling the car on is likely to put some other poor person in exactly the same position and that is entirely up to your conscience and integrity.
Personally I coudn't do such as thing.
