Note this question is from a UK (England) perspective.
I recently purchased a car (2013) from a reputable garage. Within 30 hours the TPMS was alarming.
I checked the tyre and discovered it was on 12 PSI (should be 26).
I immediately emailed the dealer to inform them, and inflated the tyre.
Checking 24 hours later, the pressure was down to 20 PSI.
I've booked the car in for them to look at on Saturday, but their response suggests they are not going to help for free:
It sounds like you have picked up a puncture, as the vehicle was on site with no issues here.
Does anyone know
- what my rights are (e.g. under the Consumer Rights Act 2015), and
- ignoring my rights, what an appropriate response from a dealer should be.
I understand that a tyre is not a warranty item, but I'll be a bit miffed if I have to buy a new tyre 3 days after buying a car...
