i bought a car a couple of weeks ago, a little runabout for me to get to and fro work (Vauxhall Vectra.....go on, laugh)
I purchased it from a reputable garage from their trade in's but their website boasts a 104 point safety check and the saleman assured me that the brakes had been checked, brakepipes pads and discs had ben replaced on the back.
I put the car into my usual garage for a timing belt change (very trustworthy, my family has used them for 15 years and even get a christmas card from them) they put it up on the ramps, a brakepipe burts quite dramatically. The rear discs and pads are also well and truly shot and have to be replaced. The owener said i was lucky because i was looking at a complete brake failure.
I'mgoing to phone the garage tomorrow and tell him very politely that he sold me unroadworthy and i wasnt reimbursed for the supposed work that they were supposed to do.......what official bodies can i complain to if it goes badly?
