sold a car privately this week. Lad who brought it came with a friend and viewed it and took it for an extensive test drive early this week, thrashing it as he did (I even asked him to slow down). He picked it up with his Dad today who also checked the car and went back to Coventry at 10am this morning. Just got a call from him at 1.20pm saying engine management light has come on and he has taken it into a garage who says it needs £300 spending on it. He cannot give me a code or tell me what the garage have said it wrong with it. It looks as he has thrashed the ******** off it on the way home. He is now saying he wants his money back! I am not going to give it back as we never had any management light come on at all when we had the car for nearly a year.
I have a receipt saying sold as seen. Does anyone know if he has any comeback legally?
I asked him time and time again if he was sure he wanted the car and each time he said yes. I am so and I do not want the car back after he has driven it as god only knows what he has done to it.
