I really need advise..
In May this year, we bought a 00 1.4 Golf. We new when buying that it needed a few small jobs done (no NCT, water pump + timing belt done recently plus serviced - according to the ad), but after initial inspection and bargaining, we got the car for €650 (asking price €800). It drove perfect for 2 weeks, then the valves in the engine went. We replaced the engine (cheapest option) and the car was still not right. The mechanic said all the bulbs from the dash were removed. You know the lights that appear on the dash if the oil is low etc. The seller removed these so on initial inspection, they wouldn't come on.
We then sent the car to our local garage. He told us the amount of issues with the car was not worth the amount of money we would have to spend. He gave us a list of about 20 different codes, which the car shouldn't have. For example, the spark plugs were all different, apparently they are supposed to be the same?
Anyway, my question is.... What come back do i have here? The seller was a complete cowboy. We are out of pocket by €1150 and still no car..
