MoT advisories and broken air con, should the dealer pay?

I bought a 2016 DS DS3 Cabrio a month ago from a main agent dealer. I've taken it to a local dealer who has given it MoT advisories for the auxiliary drive belt, windscreen wiper and perished tyres, and confirmed a suspected inoperative air con. Who should bear the costs for these requirements, outside an extended warranty?

The dealer that sold you the car is responsible for fixing the air con. The MoT advisories are not faults, however, and you will be responsible for putting these right.

Contact the salesperson who sold you the car and explain the issues with the AC. They should book the car in for a repair, as per your 2015 Consumer Rights:
