    Hi my daughter bought a second hand Corsa from a main dealer and all was well for about 4 months when the pollution control light kept comming on. She took it back as she had taken out a warrenty. The car was examined and she was told the intercooler was damaged and it was her fault. She has no recollection of driving over any thing, the damage being caused by an object pushing up the plastic under shield on the front of the car, which shows scrape marks.

    She was charged about £120 for the dianostic and took the car to another garage who charged about £300 to change out the intercooler.

    We have tried to claim back the £400 from the main dealer on the premis that the damage had been caused prior to her buying the car. They refuse to pay saying she must have caused it as the car is inspected before being sold. I do not think they would have taken off the plastic undertry, which would have been the only way to see the damage.

    Does anybody have any suggestions on how We can pursue this, is there any legal recourse or as it is just a we say, they say situation should we just give up.?

    Regards

    Nick
