[quote="missfixit70"]No, unfortunately they didn't, it was a "dealer" from the Heathrow area, they had bought a warranty with it but it seems it's not worth the paper it's written on & they have got nowhere with him :roll:

This is a complete pile of ****, and we now know who to be wary of. That said, it must be fixable, I don't know the area and dealers, but someone will. Good luck guys, we are thinking of you.

As Trading Standards say garage have failed to do their job and owe you your money back.

Or at very least most of it.

Bongo should now go back to trader on basis of "Not of merchantable quality" and you should get your money back from him + damages
i.e. any extra it has cost you over and above what the garage repay.

You will need the backing of Trading Standards where his premises are on that, but existing Trading Standards can probably advise what best to do.

Keep going and you'll win.

definitely chase it back to the "dealer", it should never have had an mot in the first place as it didn't have a fog light fitted - apart from anything else. Wish there was more I could do or say to help guys :roll:

Good luck guys, go with Scanner's advice and stick with it. With Trading Standards on side you have a good chance of getting your money back.

Please give another Bongo a try when you do.
