Ive had the car into a garage today who can chisel stuck bolts out. They took one look and said it cant be done without seriously damaging the wheels .
So, I phoned up my local Trading Standards department and explained that Id only had the car for less than 2 weeks when I discovered the problem and that the trader has refused to sort it out. The helpful chap on the phone says that a car that cannot have the wheels remove come under "good in unsatisfactory condition" and that both the trader AND the finance company are jointly liable and that I do have a case.
Im going to phone the finance company when I get back from work and make a very big fuss and complaint about this. Its really not on that I have to shell out for 4 new wheels, new locking nuts, labour charges, a new catalytic converter and a new backbox all within three weeks of buying a car that was sold to me under condition of all this work being carried out before I picked it up.
Im quite pissed off now
