Some Advice Please - Previously Sold Car..
Right ok, well , in April/May of last year, my Dad was selling a Cat D, 53 Plate VW Golf SDI that he had previously bought and repaired. My mum was using it to run about in shopping and to-and-from work (which is local). But they decided that they didnt want that much money sat in a car which they could use a car of less-vaule for.
Now when he comes to sell it (Private sale), my dad has always told people the truth, he is far too honest not to. Now my dad DID inform the buyer that its was damaged repaired and it was a Category D. Anyway all goes well and they buy the car (fairly cheaply to be honest, it had only done 10,245 miles at the time).
Now my mum an dad have the reciept that was printed out at the time (my dad got a copy and the buyer & his wife got a copy). On the reciept it CLEARLY states that it is a USED car, had the amount of miles, states that it is a Cat D and also states 'Sold As Seen'.
this also contains My dads name & signature and also the Buyers name & signature.
Today we get d!ckhead banging on our front door, talking about he's been to carcraft trying to trade it in, and its cost him 25 quid (i imagine Carcraft charged him to do a HPI on it) and now they are offering him less money for the car due to it being a Cat D. @rseh0le comes round shouting at my mum (when my dads not in) saying that he's going to take them to court and sue them.
I know for a FACT that me dad advised them at the time of sale that it was accident repaired and it was cat D.
Personally i don't think this muppet has got a leg to stand on, as they have a copy of the reciept and so do we (we've just taken a few photocopies of the original now).
What do you people think?
Sorry if its in the wrong section, was unsure of where else to put it!!!
Thanks for any replies !!
