  1. Hi all. I recently purchased a new car from a trader. Did the basic checks on the firm and all seemed ok. I spoke over the phone regarding the car etc the usual. As it was far out for me I sent a friend who was closer. Anyway got the car and some issue came apparent which weren't mentioned to me. Issue such as keyless entry doesn't work Keyless start doesn't work The car was advertised as having covered 100k but actually has 107k Side mirror not folding And to top all that the roof is leaking. I have water in the car and can hear it slushing around So what can I do in this instance? What are my rights? I'm kinda stressed out at the moment! Help Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  3. Been busy hence the lack of updates. So I had a brief conversation with my solicitor and to sum up I have decided not to pursue this any further simply because of the reasons I mentioned above. I will name and shame this trader purely in a attempt to warn others of possible issue post sale. Personally I'd avoid at all cost. But should someone consider buying from them then I'd advise to approach with caution as the face to face/phone conversation sales talk is on point but like in my case the after sale service diologe is none existent! I was given the run around by their "sales guy Paul" and likewise was never contact by their "operations manager" I spoke to Mike Neal him self ie the owner and director who was quite simply unwilling to do anything, unhelpful and straight up lied in regards to the issue raised in his response to the solicitor. http://www.mikenealselect.co.uk The Show Room Horsefair, PONTEFRACT, West Yorkshire, WF8 1RF Mike Neal select #mike Neal select #dodgy trader #avoid mike Neal select I'd ask anyone reading this to share on other fourms they may be apart of and likewise social media to warn others of the pit falls they may stray into using mike Neal select. Thanks guys for all the advice and information Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  5. My initial intention was this but after seeing how dishonest these bunch are I'd be wasting time and money. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. I completely agree with you. It's hard to believe they didn't know of the issue such as keyless entry and keyless start etc. The water leaking I could give them the benifit for. The passenger wheel had not 1 but 2 nails in it! Again hard to believe they didn't know this. The leaking roof is clogged drains from what I have managed to find out from fourms. And it's a pretty straight fix. Hopefully Millage isn't the end of the world but seeing it was a deciding factor for me simple form a resale point of view. I've decided to keep the car and have the issue addressed over time as I do like it. The trader is a complete waste and hope they get theirs soon. It amazes me how they have lied through their teeth otter waste of air Personally it's the first time I used a trader as I have always been sceptical of them and know once bitten twice shy is my mind set.

  8. By the sounds of it the trader you bought yours off seems like a genuine guy. To date the guy I bought mine off have done little to try and rectify the issue I raised . Personally I don't want to let it go and for them to get away with it...but weighing it up its the only thing I can do do minimise any further loss of money and time. Hence I said I'll put it down as a lesson learnt. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. Funny enough that was the car I took to France. I liked the car but not a fan of the e60. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. I'm currently considering to call it a day and put it down to a lesson learnt. Chop it in and get something else Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. Quick update. The traders official reply to the letter sent via the solicitor outlining the issue and millage discrepancy. He claims the vehicle had none of the mentioned issue upon sale and the millage discrepancy was not a issue as a discount was given for it at the time of sale. He hasn't explained the leaking roof tho. The guys lying through his teeth! The discount was basically me haggling the price after having been assured by them the car was sound. At no point during the sale did they mention any of the faults. My mate who picked up the car for what ever reason didn't pick up on the issue's and in regards to the millage he assumed it was what it was on the vehicle. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  13. Any chance you can give me the gist of the process you went through to get to where you are now. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  14. For the time being I'm not going to name and shame. I'm going to go through the process and take it from there. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. I was going to do this but after the telephone conversation I quickly understood these guys aren't reasonable hence why I got the solicitor involved who in essesne will send them a formal letter outlining the defects and millage issue and await a response. This way it's official and shows I'm not faffing around. I'd happily have the vehicle inspected by an Independent engineer as I know the faluts are there and they are apparent, I however will NOT take the vehicle to the trader to use a mechanic of his choice. Besides after an earlier post regarding water damage and airbags going off I will not be driving the vehicle any where soon let alone 100 odd miles to the trader. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  16. Quick update. I spoke with the trader today and he has refused to have any further discussion so long as I record it. He hasn't​ really offered a solution and is dismissive of the issue's raised. I have since appointed my solicitor to take matters further. Its looking like it's going to be a long drawn out process getting my money back. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  17. Your suspension may well be true. Personally for me a atrocity is just that irrespective where it's comitted. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  19. 7k is alot of millage which wasn't stated. And to be fair one of the key reasons why I went with this particular one was because it was a 100k car, I'd seen others around the 110k which I dismissed as a result of their higher millage. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  20. A debit card was used. Not sure if the payment has cleared. Can I block it if it hasn't? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  21. Thanks for the tip Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  22. They are a small trader,stocking around 100 odd cars. The friend should have checked the millage but for what ever reason didn't. But can't blame him for his oversight. I have downloaded a voice recorder app,so all contact with them will be recorded. I'm going to call them as I haven't had a call back today. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  23. Still have yet to get a call back. Kinda anxious to be fair. In the mean time I called trading standards. So basically I'm covered under the 2015 consumer act for goods supplied not as described. Which gives the consumer a short term (30days) right to reject goods for a full refund. The burden of proof being upon the consumer to provide evidence. I have screen shots of the add with millage being shown as 100k likewise no mention of the faults and video evidence of the leaking roof Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  24. Good news is I have a car I can use for the trip. I called the trader again and was told the operation manager will call me back. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  25. Im hoping to barrow a car to take to France and park this one up until a solution has been agreed. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
