Threaten to press charges against motorpoint. Engine repair wont be under 2000£.

Ive just found out the first owner of the car was a leasing company . Shouldnt they have had it serviced at 10000 miles ?

They should do yeah but maybe the company did they’re own services to keep costs down and didn’t bother getting it stamped or including paperwork when sold to motorpoint.

I agree with Ivanzu, no way I’d be paying into the thousands for motorpoint’s mistake, especially on a 2 year old car!

Hi
I bought my last astra j from motor point Burnley and they tend to be ex rental cars. My car was advertised as serviced but had no stamps in book . Rang dealership who had stamped the 1st page of the service book as they had supplied the car to whoever from new, and they had records of the service on their system. Supplied me with proof and said if I sent them the service book they would stamp it. Good job really had a warranty claim later

It certainally seems that way, especially if they lied about the servicing, they know that would void the warranty.

I'm not sure about that, but have a look on the log book to see who the previous owner was,then research them on the Internet to find out who they are.

The previous owner was scot group in exeter . I googled them and they are a car rental company . I wasn,t told this by motorpoint so they are braking the consumer protection from unfair tradading regulations entitling me to compensation .
