    Hi there,
    I bought a 3 year old Volkswagon Tiguan about 16 days ago, picked it up, now overall, with the price I paid I’m not satisfied with it. I bought it on pcp. Tomorrow I have to bring it back to dealer to fix some things I found to be wrong with it. The biggest one the speedometer won’t go above 2500reevs even when I floor it, also at low speed 10-15 mph I can hear a rubbing noise either from wheels or engine. The Volkswagon dealer said bring it back warrant will cover repairs, can I reject it when I bring it back tomorrow on grounds of these problems or should I just let them fix it and take it back, but for me if I paid so much it shouldn’t be giving any problem if they checked it right before it was given to me. Thank you for your information.

    Hi Patrick. The right to reject the vehicle is based on the fault being ‘significant’, which is always going to be a subjective issue – especially on a used car.

    For more information, have a read of our article about the Consumer Right Act.
