still it makes you question other aspects of the car. I just feel taken advantage of, the car was ment to be approved from them when i bought it. They surely couldnt over look this kind of problem

Bull****.

If you've got a 30 day warranty then of course you can get your money back.
they are saying he cant cause he bought the car and was happy with its condition, so whats the point in paying over inflated prices to get a car from arnold clark, may aswell just buy private
