Should the dealer replace my car's faulty clutch?

Last week I bought a 57 plate Alfa Romeo Brera from an independent dealer. Since collecting the car I've noticed that the clutch is slipping. The three month warranty will not cover the repair. Does that make the dealer responsible for the cost?

Yes. The dealer is legally responsible for this. Don't let him try to wriggle out of it: www.honestjohn.co.uk/faq/consumer-rights/
