    Hi, purchased a Vauxhall Astra convertible from a used car dealership, it was sold to me with no warranty because the roof was non-functional. Two weeks later the clutch fails with a repair cost of £500.

    Would I be able to make a claim against the dealership even though the car had no warranty?

    Thanks

    Hi Dave. Even without a warranty on the vehicle, you are still covered by the Consumer Rights Act and you can reject the car in the event of a significant fault.

    You wouldn’t be able to reject the vehicle on anything related to the roof, as that was a known fault when you bought the car, but you should be able to reject the vehicle for a clutch failure.
