My daughter bought a car with sat nav but it's missing the SD card, can I ask the dealer to pay for this?

My daughter has bought a secondhand Mercedes A-Class and subsequently discovered there is no SD card for the sat nav.

Does she have any rights for the garage seller to pick this cost up? What kind of cost would it be please?

We would expect the SD card for the sat nav to be included with the car, but the fact that it was not there is potentially just an oversight by the dealership and not necessarily something they would have picked up on.

You could approach the dealer about this matter, but we would not necessarily expect them to pick up the cost for this. There are available online from multiple retailers for anything from £30 to £50 depending on the specification of your car.
