advice for faults with recently purchased GT
I bought a 3.2 V6 GT from Perry's in Amersham about 2 months ago. Since purchasing it I have had to take it back 4 or 5 times for smaller faults. Recently I had the under tray replaced with an aluminium one at a different garage. While they were fitting it the mechanic showed me damage to the radiator which has been corroding, worn hand brake cables and also mentioned the clutch was stiffer than usual and recommended replacement.
I have taken it back to Perry's who say they will fix the handbrake problem under the warranty but the radiator and clutch are wear and tear issues and do not qualify, they did offer to contribute to half the cost of replacing the radiator (charging me £260).
I know the car had been sitting on the forecourt for many months before I purchased it and to me it feels like the car wasnt fully inspected before they sold it as they would have noticed things like the corroding radiator and some of the other niggles. It seems like too much of a coincidence for it to have happened since purchasing it.
I have read previous posts about GT clutches and wasnt really expecting them to do anything further about that.
Was just wandering what you guys think about this and if anyone has had problems/dealings with Perry's. I was expecting them to not charge for the radiator.
