My used car has an oil leak. Can I reject it?

I bought a 2011 Audi Q7 but spotted an oil leak a few days after buying. The seller is repairing it for me. Can you advise regarding my rights to return the car?

You don't say whether it's a private seller or a dealer, but you'll have more rights with a dealer. If there is a problem with your used car soon after you bought it - and that problem is not to be expected based on age or mileage - then you are entitled to a free repair or replacement as long as it's within 30 days. If you need further help, I'd recommend speaking with Citizen's Advice.
