I know this is not a place for lawyers advice, however I'm looking for honest feedback on what is my best path here.
I purchased a mazda attenza manual 2008 back in march.
This quickly failed a month later, developing a knocking sound.
Took the company, 2cheapcars 4 months to complete repairs due to their "staffing issues"
Repairs were reported as "replaced the whole engine"
Right on the 4th month since repairs, the same fault has occured. Knocking sound in the center left side of the engine (face on) sounding much like it is coming from the cam.
As the fault has reoccured I'm suspecting they simply bainaided the problem.
In terms of mantiance, it gets weekly checks on fluids etc. (It does seem to go through alot of oil. - 5 liters every month or two on average)
Bimonthly its been getting a full once over to ensure all is working well.
As far as I'm concerned I've kept Mantiance up for a car of its age well and should not have failed this early.
I gave the seller the chance to repair, they failed.
Being still under a year am i able to still claim cga?
Am i better off flogging it at a discount and cutting my losses?
I have no intention in spending weeks trying to repair it for it to all out fail. I expect it is a simple fix that has not been tracked down but I'm not a car guy.
