My car has developed a suspension issue less than a month after purchase. What are my rights?

My car has developed serious suspension and air con issues 28 days after purchasing from a dealer. If not covered by warranty, what are my rights? The car has only done 987 miles since their MoT on purchase. It was £15,000.

If a fault develops within the first 30 days (and you report it to the dealer) you are entitled to an automatic refund. If the fault has developed after this time, the dealer is still liable for at least six months. For your legal rights, see:
