gavster certainly has produced an extensive list to check the Eos when it is first bought!!!! In fact i wonder how long checking that list takes in total????

However what are the rights to reject the car if the car is say foul of certain points?

ie not metallic paint or other factors. what are your legal rights and in what circumstances can they be actioned.

As far as i know and correct me if im wrong if you leave forecourt you have agreed it is of sound quality and fit for purpose or am i wrong.....?????

In the UK, goods should, by statute, be free of minor defects at delivery too - onus is on dealer to establish that it was free of those defects. There is no requirement for 3 major defects to have appeared before right to reject arises.

The difficulty in the UK is that each case is looked at on it's merits/facts and so if the dealer disputes your rejection it can be a long hard road to getting your cash back. You require to advise of your rejection and ask him to uplift the car and refund your cash and if he doesn't you then need to take the car back and sue for your cash. In other words you have no car and no cash !! legal action can take up to two years - one chap in Scotland got money back on his Land Rover after 2 years but did not recover all of his (£50K!!) legal costs. Moral ? Hope the dealer sorts your issues out to your satisfaction !!
