Can I reject a car for a faulty CD player?

This week I did a straight swap for a car using my old car with a second hand car dealership. The in-dash CD player is not playing my CD which played in my old car. Also, the multi CD player in the glove box is not working. The dealership was also supposed to do a service according to the advert for the car but have only done a pre delivery inspection before collection. If the dealership do not resolve the CD players have I got grounds to reject the car?

The 2015 Consumer Rights Act gives you the right to reject the car if any fault is found within the first 30 days. After 30 days, the dealer has one opportunity to put it right or you can again reject it for a full refund.
