I wondered if anybody could give me any advice on a predicament I find myself in after buying a used car please?
Brief story is that I purchased a 56 Kia in May from a Dealership. On the 25th of September I find the engine management light illuminating intermittently. After having it checked by a Kia dealer on 1st October, they inform me that the car is now out of warranty (27th September 2009) and I will have to pay for the repairs. I have 2 issues here:-
A) The Kia Dealership are being very unfair on not repairing my vehicle under manufacturers warranty are they not? After all the fault exhibited itself within 2 days of expiry of the warranty.
B) I was told (verbally) that the car had a warranty until September 2011 (5 year warranty) when I bought the car and that he went away and made a phone call to check (probably went to the loo!). I stupidly did not insist on this in writing and they since deny categorically all knowledge of this (spooky!).
I'd just like to know where I stand on both these points as I would like to take the appropriate action with the two Dealerships. Thank you.
