Persistent problems with new Vauxhall Vivaro van

Go and see a solicitor or at least Citizens Advice. I’ve not kept up with consumer law but i’m fairly sure that under these circumstances you can reject the vehicle as not fit for purpose and claim a full refund.

I could easily be wrong about this, but if it’s giving this much hassle it’s got to be worth getting some proper legal advice.

    The dealer and the finance company are jointly responsible. I’m 95% certain you can just reject it as “not fit for purpose” and “not of satisfactory quality” under the Sale of Goods Act. My only doubt is that the SOGA might not apply to purchases made in the course of a business. I should know that but I don’t.

    I believe that many solicitors offer a 30 minute preliminary interview free of charge.
