    Great news on the Tribunal. However i'm afraid you won't be able to claim back the cost of the car you bought. I'm sorry if this isn't the news you wanted to hear.

    You can make a claim for damages using EA 10 but you’ll need to see a solicitor who knows what they’re doing with that legislation.
