Where do i stand with sales of good act or statutory rights?

I bought a car and on the 28th day oil has sprayed out everywhere. It looks bad but haven’t a clue until i get it towed to a garage.

The car is relatively young 03 plate, has full dealer service history and was advertised as a mint example and well cared for.

The car wasn’t sold as seen as i never got a reciept.

My question is..

Where do i stand with sales of good act or statutory rights?

Thanks in advance

    If you bought the car from dealer, then under the Sale of Goods Act, it MUST be fit for the purpose for which it was designed and sold. That is the law.

    If you bought the car privately, then the law says "Caveat emptor" (buyer beware). In other words, you’re on your own.

    The car is seven years old. Nobody in their right mind will award you a judgement just on that fact alone–it will NOT be a perfect running car.

    The car was sold "AS IS" unless you have a written warranty that expressly says otherwise.

    You stand in line at the service department…paying for any & all repairs that you authorize for YOUR car.

    Its 7 years old. Things can happen to old cars.

    You could have bought a new car if you wanted a bumper to bumper warranty.

    You got exactly what you paid for. A 7 year old car.

    The good news is the oil could have sprayed out 28 minutes after you bought it and the answer would be the same.
