    Default My Car - Any Ideas

    I bought my car at the end of Jan this year. Today I have put it in for its first service (ford garage) and been given a long list of defaults.

    When I bought the car I was sold it on the basis that it had a 2 year guarantee - Not a waranty. I was told that everything was covered and that if anything went wrong then it would be covered. The warranty company do not agree and will not cover anything which ford have found to be defective. The problems which ford have spotted were on there when I bought the car since they are due to excessive wear and tear.

    The faults are Alternator belt cracking - The guy stated at the point of sale that all belts were covered in the warranty. To the point that if the cam belt failed, they would be responsible for fixing the resulting damage. £96.79

    The handbrake mechanism has ceased. I always park in gear and so this only became obvious once I didn't - £190

    The rear sub frame bushes are severely worn and need replacing. £514.30 How long to these take to wear out and should a car with 46k miles be suffering from this.

    Is there likely to be any comeback on the seller via the European directive relating to second hand cars. The car was bought on Jan 30th from a major car supermarket in the North West. It also seems to me that the warranty was mis sold to me.

    The car was supposed to have had a 120 point check prior to selling which was 6 months ago (6k miles ago)

    Any constructive comments greatly appreciated.

    yeah... done the migration, trying to copy some data back to the test system for comparison.

    Taking ages, although allows me some time for contract hunting
