The legality of it comes into play though, it’s registered as being in the trade, as it is currently registered to Pumaspeed, as someone found out, if you’re a trade seller it is a legal requirement that you disclose the fact a car has a category on it. If Danny was selling as a private individual, then your point stands as there is no legal requirement for a private individual to disclose that information.To be frank it up to the buyer to check a car's history before buying and to ask the seller appropriate questions, the seller should be honest and saying they were oblivious is tenuous.
I'd simply walk away rather than make a big fuss though.
ah, to be honest I was browsing on the Mrs’ Facebook as I don’t have it myself so was unaware it was a private group! Non the less, it’s only fair to make everyone aware, it can be too easy to become complacent if you think your dealing with a reputable company. They (PumaSpeed) has since apologised for their chief mechanic (Danny) ‘rolling their reputation under the bus’. 😂Private group, not going to join it as I despise Facebook groups...plus a conflict of interest for me 😆
The comments were pretty bad from the mechanic, he didn’t help the situation…either way, thats one hell of bicycle he crashed into 🤣Contradicts what the buyer has said though about Danny knowing it was a cat s, things like this make me glad it took me 18 months to find mine
it has to be remembered though that Cat S is the only category that specifically states that the car has had structural damage and is still allowed to be repaired - "Structural damage, repairable". Any other category that itemises structural damage must be broken or crushed. All the other repairable categories are just "not economically worth repairing".The Facebook poster says Cat S is severe structural damage is incorrect and a just hyping the negatives. Cat S are perfectly fine to be repaired, severe structural damage would be Cat A or B and would not be repaired. Air bags alone can cause Cat S. But the price must reflect it and if I were selling I'd include pre repair pictures to be fully transparent.
