    Default is there anything i can do and were do i stand???

    Today washing the car i noticed that the paint around the rubber seal around my rear quarter is peeling off. It looks like the car was resprayed at some point and a **** job was done. Now i knew the passenger side was done as there was over spray onto the rear bumper. i did abit of digging into the history of the car and found out it had been damaged along both sides with passenger side having a new door.

    now what im wondering is i was never told of any of this when i bought the car from a certain large car supermarket company can i take the car back to them and get the paintwork sorted out for misleading me, as the car was meant to be hpi clear and never been damaged. if so what is the next step from here to getting the car sorted etc?

    HPI only shows it as written off mate. Dont think there is anything you can do tbh, they might not have even known.

    If they never told you how could they mislead you, did you ask if it had had a respray ?

    How long have you had the car ?

    HPI only shows if an insurance claim has been made, say you scratched the wing and got it sprayed how would HPI know ?

    Have a word with trading standards first, and then phone the dealer to tell them about your issue and who you have had advice from ‘TS’, you will be surprised as to how helpful they can be then.

    Well it worked for me once on a car issue.

    ahhh, god thats awful,

    we had a young girl bought a 2 month old astra twintop (the convertible one)
    she bought it from another garage as a demonstrator, looked nice.

    only snag was,

    drive the car with the roof up, car was fine, handled okay, braked in a straight line etc etc.

    drive with roof down, put your arm on the door card (as you do) and hand on steering wheel, and the dash litteraly moves away from the door
    also if you brake the car pulls really bad to the left,
    and if you steer into a corner at as little as 20mph it was all over the place and what a twist

    let alone doing 60mph in it.

    soooo....................

    returned to the garage and put the car on the ramp and found some un sightly halfords speciallity underseal all over one half of the floor pan.

    strange on a car thats done 500 miles

    well investigations went on and we found different shades of paint, poor seals, welds jig marks.

    it turns out, the car came off the transporter as usual, got parked up, and the bin lorry came in, and reversed into it, trapping it between a steel ballard and the tail end of the truck, and litteraly crushed the centre of the car.

    the garage (without anyone knowing) pulled out the floor, replaced both wings, doors, quarters and tailgate, and straightened out the floor pan, causing the car to be weak and twist.

    trading standards got to the bottom of this one mate.

    its such a bad world we live in

    see thats the sorta thing im worried about i dnt know what other damage could have been done, i know the door was replaced and i think rear quarter aswell or repaired very well but ive no idea. just looking out at the car through the window and im starting to hate it now even though its one of the best cars ive had.
