    Default Where do you think he stands?

    The Missus brother has just bought a brand new Zafira Breeze plus.

    He specifically asked if the radio played Mp3s and was told that it did.
    So he picked it up today and it's fitted with a standard CD 30. Not the Mp3 version.

    He phoned them up once he realised and was told that it should play Mp3s but it definiatly doesn't. He's after them changing it to the CDC 40 (which he will pay for) but he's wondering where he stands legally?

    He's not one to research cars (obviously ) but he did specify what he wanted and this was high on the list.

    they have breeched the sale of goods act, he has specifically asked for a product they have advised thats what he has got and he hasn't, so he has been mis-sold I'd be after them paying to put the Mp3 version in or tell them your returning the vehicle for a full refund as well as any charges incured with the finance (if there is any)... just my opinion mind

    Has he got anything in writing saying that they would provide the car with an MP3 radio or was it just verbal?

    Just verbal on two occasions. Once when the sales person told him before he bought it and then today on the phone when he was told it should play them.

    Paid cash for it (Partners scheme)

    Just had a look at the Vx web site and the Breeze and Breeze plus Zafira comes with a CDC 40 MP3 (deletes aux in socket where fitted). The car in question may have been an older build date model, it may have a 3.5 mm aux input socket though and the source of the mix up?

    The GF has ordered a Corsa CTDI B+ for September (Partner scheme as above) and it has a Aux in for her iPod.

    Hmm... if its not in writing then he may have to argue over it, however if the specs say it should have MP3 then the dealer should sort it.

    Was it pre-registered? (and hence could be a previous spec model?)

    Its part of the 'verbal negotiations' of the contract, and if he could convince a court that the stereo being able to play mp3's was 'material' to the contract then its a breach, i.e. would he have bought the car at all if it had not been for the fact he was told it had this feature

    Hmmm, It's listed as £450 option on the model he bought.

    CDC 40 DAB stereo radio/CD autochanger with MP3 format (deletes auxiliary-in socket, where fitted) £450
    • AM/FM/DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast) stereo radio with 36 station presets
    • RDS with Traffic Programme
    • Integral six-disc CD autochanger with MP3 format
    • Remote graphic information display
    • 35 watts per channel output
    • 7 speakers
    Wonder if thay have sold him an old model. TBH that would be even worse

    Not sure about an Aux in. Your're right if it has it, as that is what they may have meant.

    Would it surprise you to know it's the same dealer that had my Sri on the back of a trailer up and down the motorways on a bleedin' transporter for a month.
