Read­ers have ad­vice for let­ter writer whose sec­ond-hand car broke down

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

“You bought a used car with­out first hav­ing it in­spected by qual­i­fied me­chanic. Your mistake , sadly you will have to live with this mistake…”


“The per­son who sold you the car did not dis­close all in­for­ma­tion about the car, which is im­moral but not il­le­gal, so from a le­gal per­spec­tive you are not a victim of fraud. You should have taken the car to the me­chanic be­fore buy­ing the car.”


“It’s not fraud, it’s lack of knowl­edge: 1. A 2008 model is not worth the amount men­tioned. 2. The brand men­tioned has a very low re­sale value. 3. You nei­ther in­spected the car at a garage nor asked an ex­pert to give you a re­view. 4. You paid cash and got what you paid for. I can list much more… It’s your fault, deal with it!”


“Sim­ple, you need to go to the near­est po­lice sta­tion and re­port the mat­ter im­me­di­ately. Dubai Po­lice is very pro ac­tive and you will surely be get­ting jus­tice. As per law if you buy any ve­hi­cle from show­room or any in­di­vid­ual and within a pe­riod of 30 days if any ma­jor prob­lem is in the car you can re­port and the seller have to pay you the money back. I had a sim­i­lar in­ci­dent but in my case the chas­sis was re­paired which i came to know weeks later, I re­ported to po­lice and I got my money back. Good luck.”
