I have a 2015 Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 Ecoflex. The car was purchased March 2016. It has been back to the dealer for repairs to the engine 6 times since April 2016. It judders at 1500 rpm and struggles to accelerate. They have replaced the glow plugs three times and put on a new cam sensor. It has started playing up again with the same issue. The car will be out of warranty in March 2018. I have now had enough and would like to return the car to Vauxhall. What are my legal rights as I feel the car is not fit for purpose?

Hi John. You are well outside the six-month period specified in the Consumer Rights Act 2015 for rejecting a car. That doesn’t mean you can’t do it, but it does mean it’s a lot more difficult.
Basically, if you’ve had the car 18 months then you’ve accepted the vehicle and it’s a bit late to try and reject it now. You may be able to, but you’re likely to need good legal support.
