    Mis sold my car

    Good evening, just a quick question ref the above subject, I have recently bought an audi a4 sline, totally loving it but when I looked at the description of the car on the advert it mentioned the car had cruise control but since owning it I have realised it doesn't have it, I bought the car from a local car dealer, am I right in saying the dealer has to fix this? Or offer a refund for breach of contract?

    Thanks in advance

    Item not as decribed. To be honest though do you really want it? If it;s that big a deal find one of the companies that will retro fit it and see what the dealer says. Worst case he'll tell you to sod off. To be brutall if the rest of the car is spot on why bother as the aggro of getting it sorted legally will leave you very flat and out of pocket

    Tbh i would say if you bought the car off the internet from the description, you would have a case but actually having had a chance to inspect it at your leisure before agreeing to buy it, then i doubt you would have any comeback.
    As said, just get it retrofitted if its important to you, its not that expensive.

    No it wasn't bought off the internet, the advert was online then I went to look at the car, to be honest I didn't know where the c/c would have been as my previous car was a mondeo and the c/c was on the steering wheel..the audi has so many buttons and dials I didn't know what I was looking at when I bought it!

    I do loads of miles for my job too mate, never needed it and even in cars that have had it I've not bothered to use it after the novelty wore off. It was advertised with it but as has said you inspected it before buying so the dealer has ample grey area to run you round and tie you in knots. Get a quote for a retrofit and approach the dealer but don't be surprised if you get the bums rush. For the aggro I would simply get it fitted and give yourself a light slap for not checking it properly.
